Joe Nardone presents an incredible six act “Night of Doo Wop and Legends Volume 2” on Saturday, April 23 at 7:00 pm starring The Duprees.
Known for their smooth yet powerful vocal quality and heavenly harmonies, the Duprees also present a dynamic stage show that will bring the house down. Hits include “You Belong to me,” “My Own True Love,” “Why Don’t you Believe Me” and “Have You Heard.”
Co-headlining the show is Sonny Turner, former lead singer of The Platters from 1960-1970. The Platters had an amazing 40 hit singles on the Billboard Charts, including four #1 hits: “The Great Pretender,” “Twilight Time,” “Only You” and “My Prayer.” Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990, Las Vegas based Sonny and his backup singers fly in to also sing “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes,” “The Magic Touch” and “Harbor Lights.’
Dennis Tufano, original lead singer of The Buckinghams, still looks and sings great. He will sing his Buckinghams’ hits “Kind of a Drag” (#1 smash hit), “Don’t You Care,” “Hey Baby, They’re Playing our Song,” “Mercy, Mercy, Mercy” and “Susan” as well as a tribute to Bobby Darin.
Jay Siegel’s Tokens not only had their own hits but produced hits for The Chiffons, The Happenings and Tony Orlando and Dawn. In 1962, they were the first vocal group to produce a #1 hit for another vocal group (“He’s So Fine” by The Chiffons). The Tokens international #1 hit, “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” is unique in the history of pop music, reentering the charts 33 years later and going 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, with original member Frank Reina and incredible lead singer Michael d’Amore, come back to Wilkes Barre as the audience has clamored for their return after they brought the house down in 2019. Their signature hit was “There’s a Moon Out Tonight” and their second hit, “Morse Code of Love,” was redone by Manhattan Transfer and became a big hit again.
Bobby Brooks Wilson, son of the legendary Jackie Wilson, recreates the on-stage persona of his father Jackie, known world-wide as “Mr. Excitement.” Bobby’s resemblance, voice and dance moves are identical to his father’s, and Bobby is a three-time Grammy Balloted artist who has 4 top 10 hits on the AC charts.
Six great acts, one great night of Doo Wop and legends. You don’t want to miss it.
