Garden City, NY - January 26, 2016 - Adelphi University’s Performing Arts Center (AUPAC) is pleased to announce that current and former stars of Broadway’s Jersey Boys and Motown: The Musical will sing some of the greatest music in American pop and rock history and put a modern spin to songs in The Doo Wop Project on Sunday, February 21, 2016, at 3:00 p.m. on the Westermann Stage of the Concert Hall at 1 South Avenue, Garden City, NY.
Featuring Dwayne Cooper (Motown: The Musical, Hairspray), Russell Fischer (Jersey Boys), Frankie J. Galasso (Jersey Boys), Jevon McFerrin (Motown: The Musical) and Matthew Scott (Jersey Boys, Sondheim On Sondheim), The Doo Wop Project brings unparalleled authenticity of sound and vocal excellence to recreate and in some cases entirely re-imagine songs. 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. Throughout the show, the group takes 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 Michael Jackson, Jason Mraz and Amy Winehouse.
