Enjoy an entertaining evening of oldies but goodies at “A Doo Wop Celebration VI!” on Sunday, June 9, 2013, at 4 p.m. at the historic Akron Civic Theatre in downtown Akron.
The concert will feature an impressive lineup of renowned doo wop performers: Charlie Thomas' The Drifters; Shirley Alston Reeves, original lead singer of The Shirelles; The Coasters; and Sonny Turner, former lead singer of The Platters. Their many hits include "Up on the Roof," "Soldier Boy," "Charlie Brown” and “Only You."
"For even the most casual doo wop fan, this is a great line-up,” said Lisa Martinez, Western Reserve Public Media vice president of marketing and development. "We’re especially pleased to partner with the Akron Civic Theatre, which offers the perfect venue for a trip down memory lane." Proceeds from the event will benefit Western Reserve PBS and the Akron Civic Theatre.
