Joe Nardone presents an incredible six act “Night of Doowop 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.”
 
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.  Dennis looks great and
Sings great, and he is looking forward to his first performance at the F.M. Kirby Center.
 
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.
 
The legendary Charlie Gracie, known as “Philadelphia’s first rock star,” had several hits including “Butterfly,” which topped the charts in the US and the United Kingdom.  Charlie headlined Connie Mac Stadium and the Brooklyn Paramount and was the first solo American artist to take England by storm, headlining London’s Palladium and Hippodrome.  The Beatles were fans, and he opened for Van Morrison’s US tour.  An inductee into the Rockabilly Hall of Fame and Great Britain’s Rock and Roll Hall of fame, Charlie continues to wow audiences and has a European tour scheduled for this spring.
 
Six great acts, one great night of doowop and legends.  You don’t want to miss it.
