The theatre was a very nice place. The event was not sold out and so our tickets were upgraded to the orchestra (instead of the balcony). We were very pleasantly surprised. The first 1/2 of the show was okay but the second half was very much more enjoyable.
Harvey Robbins is the Founder and President of Harvey Robbins’ Productions. This national organization has been producing major concerts in New England since 1985.
This year’s extravaganza will feature performances by the doo-wop and Motown artists that you have come to know and love!
The original Vandellas will make their first appearance at The Hanover Theatre, singing classics like “Dancin’ in the Street”.
The Contours will also be making an exclusive appearance singing the classic hit “Do You Love Me” from the major motion picture Dirty Dancing!
Leon Hughes, of the original Coasters, will be making his first performance ever in New England! He is the last of the full time performing Coasters of Los Angeles, CA. Favorite tunes include, “Charlie Brown”, “Smokey Joe’s Café”, “Yakety Yak”, “Poison Ivey”, “Young Blood”, and “Searchin’ ”. This will be a major exclusive New England appearance that you will not want to miss!
Also performing will be Sid Hall and Doug McLure, performing music of the Flamingos, including “I Only Have Eyes for You”, “Lovers Never Say Goodbye”, “A Kiss From Your Lips”, “I’ll Be Home”, and “Golden Teardrops” among many other great hits. The Flamingos are considered to be the best romantic doo-wop group of all time, and have been inducted into the doo-wop Hall of Fame.
Additionally, check out the Harvey Robbins’ Royalty of Rock ‘n Roll All-Stars! Performing for the last 20 years, the Rock ‘n Roll All-Stars are showcased on the annual Oldies But Goodies Cruise, and have been playing at Foxwoods Resort and Casino for the last six years! The Rock ‘n Roll All-Stars are featuring celebrity guest Billy Davis. Davis was Jimi Hendrix’s original guitar tutor; Jackie Wilson’s original lead guitarist on the song “(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher”; and he was the guitarist and sole composer on the original version of “The Twist” before Chubby Checker popularized it.
This show will have you dancing in the aisles and singing along to your favorite doo-wop classics!
