Stars of the Sixties return to the Stafford Centre… The Lovin’ Spoonful, The Vogues and Shirley Alston Reeves (original lead singer of The Shirelles) come together for one night only.
If you remember “Do You Believe in Magic?” and “Did You Ever Have to Make Up Your Mind?”, you’ve come to the right place. According to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, between 1965 and 1968, The Lovin’ Spoonful spanned the genres of hard rock (“Summer in the City”), ragtime (“Day Dream”), country (“Nashville Cats”), folk-pop (“You Didn’t Have to Be So Nice”), jug-band music (“Good Time Music”), and orchestrated pop (“She Is Still a Mystery”). Add to that “6 o’Clock” and “Darling Be Home Soon” and you’ve got the makings of one of the best vintage rock and roll concerts ever. The Spoonful features original founding members Steve Boone (who co-wrote some of the bands biggest hits) and Joe Butler, as well as Murray Weinstock (who played and sang on “Welcome Back”), Mike Arturi and Phil Smith. Joining in for a double-dose of feel-good music are The Vogues (“You’re the One”, “5 o’Clock World”, “Turn Around, Look at Me”, “My Special Angel”) and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Shirley Alston Reeves, the original lead singer of The Shirelles (“Will You Love Me Tomorrow”, “Mama Said”, “Soldier Boy”, “Tonight’s the Night”, “Baby It’s You” and many more.) Don’t miss reunion of rock and roll stars of the sixties! Presented by Praia Entertainment Group / Pop, Rock & Doo Wopp.
