Event Description

Our celebration of doo wop acappella harmony at the Pollak Theatre is back by popular demand. Born on the street corners of urban America, rhythm & blues and doo wop singing reached its peak in the 1950's, but still has a strong following today. While doo wop singing began as an African American art form, by the late 1950's it was enjoyed by singers of all races. Doo wop harmony in its purist form is acappella (without instruments or musical tracks). We've again assembled some of the top acappella doo wop vocal groups from NYC to Washington DC. Headlining the concert will be R&B and Doo Wop favorites, Pookie Hudson's Spaniels along with Vito & the Salutations. The Spaniels are known for the 1956 million seller, "Goodnight Sweetheart Goodnight," a song that defined the whole doo wop era. The current group backed lead singer Pookie Hudson before his passing in 2006 and continues the Spaniels' tradition of superb doo wop harmony.
