Join us on Friday, June 8 or Saturday, June 9, 2018 for a night that will bring back memories of sock hops and soda shops featuring The Marcels, Charlie Thomas’ Drifters, and Pure Gold. Let’s turn back the clock for a night of dinner and dancing and Doo Wop classics!
With signature acappella vocals and four-part harmonies, Pure Gold delivers diverse sounds and musical styles with a stage presence that transcends audience ages and backgrounds. Bringing the golden age of American vocal harmony to performances from Radio City Music Hall to The Waldorf Astoria and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Pure Gold doo-wops their way through the decades, performing material from the 50s, 60s, and 70s, as well as a blend of blues, standards and original material to highlight their unique talents and range.
The Marcels are as advertised, the guys who put the “Bomp” in the “Bomp-A-Bomp” back in 1961 when their first recording, “Blue Moon” sold over two and a half million copies. The Marcels can boast of three record albums, numerous hit singles, with sales in the millions. They also recorded the theme song, “The Greatest Love” for the motion picture, “The Interns” and appeared with Chubby Checker in the film “Twist Around The Clock.” Their signature song, “Blue Moon” has been used in at least four major motion pictures and various TV shows, such as Sha Na Na, Cheers, Moonlighting, Laverne & Shirley, Happy Days, and more!
Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Charlie Thomas was born in Lynchburg, Virginia on April 7, 1937. He was a member of a group known as the Five Crowns in 1958 along with Ben Earl Nelson (later known as Ben E. King), who were being managed by Lover Patterson.
While the The Five Crowns met with little commercial success, they enjoyed local popularity and that is why they were on the bill at the Apollo Theater in New York City in 1958 when George Treadwell fired his famous group, The Drifters. It was Charlie Thomas’ voice that Treadwell heard and hastily recruited the Crowns to become the new Drifters.
Lover Patterson once said that Charlie Thomas’ voice was one that the world would enjoy forever, and he was right!
The new Drifters first release in 1959 was a song called “There Goes My Baby”. This was the beginning of what is generally acknowledged as the Golden Years of the Drifters.
