Sweet harmonies with The Doo Wop Project
Cast members from Broadway's 'Jersey Boys' perform some soulful hits on Nov. 15
The Doo Wop Project
The smooth sounds of classic doo-wop can be heard at Tilles Center’s Hillwood Recital Hall, in the form of five outstanding vocalists known as The Doo Wop Project. The entertaining ensemble — who were, or currently are, in the cast of Broadway’s smash hit “Jersey Boys” — offers up a night of songs mixed with individual stories and references to their upbringings and experiences in the business, particularly backstage at the August Wilson Theatre, home of Jersey Boys, where the idea for the group was conceived. The Doo Wop Project, which does not feature Jersey Boys material or songs by Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, is an homage to the doo-wop era and the music that was inspired by that sound. These modern doo-wop guys put their spin on such songs as “Denise” by Randy & The Rainbows, Thurston Harris’ “Little Bitty Pretty One,” The Skyliners’ “Since I Don’t Have You,” “Gloria,” and “God Only Knows,” among other classics.
