Flashback to the fifties and sixties!
Harbor Lights’ presentation takes you back to a time when Poodle skirts, sock hops, and juke boxes were the lifestyle of teenagers. The group pays tribute to all the fantastic vocal groups that started out singing on the street corners of New York, Chicago and Philadelphia, and eventually rose to stardom on the radio and TV. It’s a musical journey back to a simpler, less complicated, more romantic time. Every song will stir fond memories of your youth. You will be transported back to I Love Lucy, American Bandstand, poodle skirts and pony tails.
When the curtain goes up they become a vocal band.
As they break into song it takes the audience a while to realize that there is no instrumental accompaniment. Not even a pitch pipe. The group laughingly terms it as “singing without a net”. Their unique vocal arrangements bring the tunes together seamlessly. Who needs a band?
As they move through the show they fold the history of the music into their presentation and the audience becomes part of the show. Lots of Humorous stories and interesting trivia.
