Joe Nardone Presents: Golden Oldies Spectacular!
with Lloyd Price, The Fleetwoods, Marcels, Skyliners, and Kid Kyle
Joe Nardone presents an incredible five act GOLDEN OLDIES SPECTACULAR on Friday, March 1 at 7:00 pm starring “Mr. Personality,” Lloyd Price. He had a sting of top 10 hits on the pop and R&B charts in the 1950s-early 1960s, including “Lawdy Miss Clawdy,” “Stagger Lee” (#1), “Personality” (#2), “I’m Gonna Get Married” (#3), “Lady Luck,” “Question” and “Just Because.” Price’s signature style included lush, full orchestration combined with gritty tempos of R & B. His stage show is legendary, including his incredible musicians, 6 piece horn section and female backup singers.
Pittsburgh’s own The Skyliners are renowned for their quintessential ballad “Since I Don’t Have You.”
Other hits include “This I Swear,” “Pennies from Heaven” and “Close your Eyes. They were the first white act to have a #1 hit on the Cashbox R&B charts, leading to 8 performances at the Apollo Theatre.
They toured on Dick Clark’s Cavalcade of Stars and were featured in many Alan Freed concerts. Their performance will prove that The Skyliners are one of the greatest harmony vocal groups of all time.
Another Pittsburgh-based group, The Marcels, will entertain with their fun, high-energy performance, proving that they do indeed put the “BOMP” in the “BOMP-A-BOMP.” “Blue Moon” sold over 2.5 million copies and was #1 in the US and the UK. “Heartaches” was their second gold single, reaching #7 on the US charts and #3 in the UK. They will have the audience on their feet and dancing.
One of the classiest acts in musical history, The Fleetwoods, will also perform. Hailing from Olympia, Washington, this is a rare Pennsylvania appearance. They were the first group to have two #1 hits on the billboard charts in the same year and the first mixed-gender trio with more than one #1 hit. “Come Softly to Me” and “Mr. Blue” both hit #1 and were two of their 11 hit records. It will be a treat for the Kirby Center audience to enjoy the beautiful harmonies of The Fleetwoods.
Opening the show is New Jersey’s dynamic Kid Kyle. Kyle first gained prominence at age 8 with his performance on American Idol Junior. He has performed on “Today in New York” and “Good Day, New York” as well as performing around the world. At age 23, he embodies the next generation of singers that will keep the great music of the 50’s and 60’s alive and flourishing, and Kid Kyle will captivate the audience with his unique voice and showmanship.
Five great acts; one great night of music. Thanks for keep the music alive!
