Doo Wop Show To North Fork Theatre March 3

Live Nation proudly presents Dick Fox's Original Spring Doo Wop Extravaganza at the North Fork Theatre at Westbury on Saturday, March 3 at 8 p.m. This installment of great acts from the 50's and 60's features Fred Parris and The Five Satins, Cleve Duncan and The Penguins, Earl Lewis and The Channels, The Orlons, The Tymes, The Solitaires and special guests, The Paragons.

The Doo Wop Era is generally thought to have begun around 1948 and ended with the arrival of The Beatles. It was a time that gave us groups like Fred Parris & The Five Satins who recorded "In the Still of the Night" in a New Haven, CT church basement. By the time the song was a hit, Fred Parris was in the Army and stationed in Japan. During this time period, numerous teenage groups would gather in homes, garages, churches and even on street corners to sing their songs using phonetics for complex harmonies.

In addition to the return of Fred Parris and The Five Satins, The Spring Doo Wop Extravaganza also includes appearances by The Penguins, singing hits like "Earth Angel," The Channels best known for "The Closer You Are," The Orlons, performing

The Wah Watusi," The Tymes crooning "So Much in Love," and The Solitaires, harmonizing their hit "Walking Along." The concert will also feature special guests The Paragons giving their all to their hit single "If." Once again, Dick Fox has produced an event that will bring back a flood of memories of an era that was a time of social renewal and the birth of rock 'n' roll.
