Fresh off their 2014 PBS concert special, Let the Good Times Roll, the retro doo-wop specialists known as Under the Streetlamp step into the spotlight for a night of great music from the '50s and '60s. This modern-day Rat Pack is made up of recent leading cast members from the hit musical Jersey Boys, who apply their unique blend of tight harmonies and slick dance moves to Motown and old time rock 'n' roll hits, putting their own spin on timeless tunes by The Drifters, The Beach Boys, The Beatles, The Four Seasons and many more. The 10-member pop a cappella ensemble Gentleman's Rule are the special guests. Learn More

I realize this was for charity. I didn't expect large portions. But the samples were tiny, far smaller than similar charity events. And they have the word "cheese" in their title, yet there was only one table with cheese. And that sample was less than the size of a typical cube and was put on a piece of bread. There were a few ok wines, such art Mt. De Oro and Ophelia. But on the other hand, there was also Barefoot and Turning Leaf. The VIP lounge was empty. The band was very good. It was a social time and parking was pretty easy. I would not go again. This is really 2.5 stars.
