The Doo Wop Project Brings Retro Style Broadway to Duke Energy Center for the Arts-Mahaffey Theater. The Doo Wop stars perform a collection of classic songs along with doo-wop inspired renditions of popular contemporary hits. Showcasing unparalleled authenticity of sound and vocal excellence, The Doo Wop Project recreates some of the greatest music in American pop and rock history. The group will perform at the Duke Energy Center for the Arts – Mahaffey Theater on Thursday, Jan. 16 at 7:30 p.m.
The Doo Wop Project begins at the beginning, tracing 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. In their epic shows, they take audiences on a journey from foundational tunes of groups like the Crests, Belmonts and Flamingos through their influences on the sounds of Smokey Robinson, The Temptations, and The Four Seasons all the way to DooWopified versions of modern musicians like Michael Jackson, Jason Mraz and Maroon 5.
The Doo Wop Project is a night of songs mixed with individual stories and references to their upbringings and experiences in the business, particularly backstage at The August Wilson Theatre, home of Jersey Boys, where the idea for the group was conceived. For tickets check out www.mahaffey.org
