The Doo Wop Project

From Bop to Pop! these five charismatic triple-threats from Broadway’s smash hits, Jersey Boys and Motown: The Musical, and their hot 5-piece band tear it up with street corner singing for a whole new generation! The show traces the evolution of Doo Wop from the classic sound of five guys singing tight harmonies on a street corner to the biggest hits on the radio today. DWP takes you on a journey from foundational tunes of groups like the Crests, Belmonts and Flamingos through their influence on the sounds of Smokey Robinson, The Temptations and The Four Seasons all the way to Michael Jackson, Jason Mraz and Amy Whitehouse.

The Doo Wop Project brings unparalleled authenticity of sound and vocal excellence to recreate — and in some cases entirely reimagine — some of the greatest music in American pop and rock history. Enjoy a night filled with harmonies and classic ‘60s hits such as Dion and the Belmonts’ I Wonder Why, Thurston Harris’ Little Bitty Pretty One, The Del-Vikings Come and Go With Me, The Capris’ Morse Code of Love and many more. Fun for the entire family, the show also includes doo-wop-inspired renditions of contemporary songs such as Amy Winehouse’s Valerie, Michael Jackson’s The Way You Make Me Feel and Jason Mraz’s I’m Yours.

VIRTUAL TUESDAY NIGHT RECORD CLUB: Bruce Springsteen: The River

We have decided to continue with Record Club in virtual format using the ZOOM app. When you register you will be provided the meeting link to join the conversation. It’s just like book club but with albums! With new advances in technology, the way we consume music through our devices, apps and on demand streaming services like Pandora, Spotify and iTunes is making the idea of the “album” as an art form extinct. Get together with other music enthusiasts on Tuesday nights to discuss some of the greatest records of all-time! Listen to the album beforehand and then come prepared to discuss. This event will feature Bruce Springsteen: The River.

ELECTO ELECTRO 2020 – Interactive Workshop and Artist Talk

Electo Electro 2020 is an interactive installation combining audience participation, music, news footage, and politics. The project allows participants to remix videos from political rallies, debates, and news in a structured sixteen beat loop. The touchscreen design is a parody of the system employed by the Accuvote, a voting system that is difficult to audit and susceptible to hacking. The parody continues into the format of the installation itself which will resemble a polling station. There will be an artist talk at 6:00 followed by a Max MSP Jitter workshop at 7:30 pm.
