SOUTHAMPTON LIONS CLUB CHARITABLE TRUST OLDIES SPECTACULAR by Michael Mackey

Aug 11, 2016


This week our WPPB TBT celebrates the eagerly anticipated Southampton Lions Club Charitable Trust Oldies Spectacular.

The 14th annual concert event on Saturday; August 13, 2016 starts at 7pm in the Southampton High School auditorium featuring: Kathy Young ("A Thousand Stars" recorded 1960 when she was 15); Chris Montez (his 1962 hit "Let's Dance" reached the top of the charts when he was just 19); Jimmy Gallagher and The Passions ("Just To Be With You" / 1959); Jay Siegel's Tokens ("The Lion Sleeps Tonight" / 1961) AND Charlie Thomas's Drifters (“This Magic Moment” / 1960, "Under The Boardwalk" etc., etc., etc.!).

The six decades old music being celebrated at this special community fundraiser never gets tired; especially when accomplished professionals perform live in front of a packed house of enthusiastic, “forever young at heart” fans. Call it doo wop, rock & roll, rhythm & blues; whatever term rendered, the result for fourteen years running has been a nostalgic summer night to remember.

So come take advantage of a magic moment from the past and enjoy a present perfect evening in the mighty jungle of live music.
