Joe Nardone Presents: "Oh What A Night" of Doo Wop Legends
Featuring The Brooklyn Bridge, The Vogues, Jay Siegel's Tokens, Vito & The Elegants, & The Capris
Joe Nardone presents an incredible five act lineup of hitmakers that will transport the audience back to the wonderful era of the 1060s, reliving those amazing days through music that will never die and its connection with the audience. The show stars:
The Brooklyn Bridge, featuring six original members, were originally formed by combining Johnny Maestro, lead singer of the Crests, with the Del-Satins (Dion’s backup singers) and a horn section. Their performance of Crests’ hits (“16 Candles,” “The Angels Listened In” and “Step by Step”), and Bridge hits “The Worst That Could Happen,” “Blessed is the Rain,” “You’ll Never Walk Alone” and “Your Husband, My Wife” will bring down the house. Lead singer Joe Esposito is incredible.
Co-headlining the show are Pennsylvania’s own The Vogues. Renowned for their outstanding talent, stylish delivery and strong vocal harmonies, they had nine top twenty hits, including “You’re the One,” “Five O’Clock World,” “Turn Around, Look at Me,” and “My Special Angel.”
Jay Siegel’s Tokens had two million selling hits, “Tonight I Fell in Love” and their international #1 hit, “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.” That song re-entered the charts 33 years later and went to #1 worldwide again, stoked by its use in “The Lion King” movie. Jay Siegel continues to be blessed with his strong tenor voice and soaring falsetto.
The Capris, formed in Queens, New York, had a smash hit with “There’s a Moon Out Tonight” as well as “Morse Code of Love.” They bring their doo wop vocal prowess to the Kirby Center for the first time.
Also new to the Kirby Center stage and opening the show are Vito Picone and the Elegants. Formed in Staten Island in 1956, “Little Star” sold almost three million copies and spent 19 weeks on the charts. It has received over 1 million spins on radio and been used in countless movies and was featured on “The Sopranos.” Vito Picone also appeared in the Oscar winning film “Goodfellas.”
