I am so grateful to Deborah Nader (http://www.richardnader.com/) giving my husband and I comp tickets to last night’s show!
It was a fabulous night to watch all the stars come out: Jay Black, Gene Chandler, John Kuse & The Excellents, Lenny Coco & The Chimes, The Duprees, Jay Siegel’s Tokens, Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs, Tommy Mara & The Crests, Twin Gold and the Whip-Tones (from Whippany, NJ).
I was thrilled to meet Jay Siegel during intermission. The Tokens have a special place in my heart because the year I was born, 1963, their song “The Lion Sleeps Tonite” was a hit, and my favorite hit of that year!
Other highlights of the show were when Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs sang “Little Darling” and an Elvis impersonator, Craig Newell, came out. And when Jay Black, at age 75, hit the high notes of “Cara Mia.” Every single act was excellent!
The show was 3.5 hours long, with a brief intermission.
I’m still on such a high from the show — so many great songs and acts, one right after another!
