THE DOO WOP PROJECT BRINGS RETRO STYLE HARMONIES
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, January 13 at 7:30 p.m. These Broadway Stars perform a collection of Classic Songs along with Doo-Wop Inspired Renditions of Popular Contemporary Hits.
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, Maroon 5 and Sam Smith.
Featuring stars from the Broadway hits Jersey Boys, Motown: The Musical and A Bronx Tale, The Doo Wop Project brings unparalleled authenticity of sound and vocal excellence to recreate – and in some cases entirely reimagine – the greatest music in American pop and rock history. Tickets range from $25-$55 and can be purchased online at www.themahaffey.com.
