Doo Wop II

We went with some friends to see a Doo Wop tour put on by the local PBS Station. The first group was The Reflections best know for "(Just Like) Romeo & Juliet".
Their lead singer Tony Micale did a good job on the songs.
Here is also one of the older men of the group.
The next group on was "The Chiffons" led by Judy Craig (Mann). They were famous for a lot of songs including "He's so Fine" and "One Fine Day".
The featured group was Carl Gardner's "The Coasters" with his son singing lead. Who can forget "Yakety Yak" and "Charlie Brown".
They had some fine moves on the stage.
Charles Gardner Jr. sounded a lot like his Dad.
The groups shared a fun night at the Kent Stage.
My wife and I with our friends also had a fun time at the show.

I would have loved that show! I hope they didn't play the music too loud like they do at most of those concerts.
