Mark Saturday, August 11, 2018 on your calendar for a fabulous concert evening of doo-wop favorites and good old rock and roll! The concert is held at Southampton High School auditorium, 141 Narrow Lane, Southampton, N.Y. Every summer the Southampton Lion’s Club hosts a concert with an outstanding line up of golden oldies songs performed by legendary favorite groups. The SIXTEENTH annual oldies spectacular will be another great evening of fantastic talent and great music. The evening is sponsored by WLNG Radio’s and produced by LAR Enterprises, Inc. Be sure to come early to see the extraordinary classic, vintage cars on display from 5 – 7 pm, weather permitting, in the school parking lot! The concert starts at 7 pm. It’s a wonderful night of entertainment of fabulous music!
Every year we have attended the shows were absolutely terrific and each one seems to outdo the year before! This year’s lineup of famous performers include Lou Christie (Lightning Strikes and The Gypsy Cried) The Duprees (You Belong to Me, My Own True Love, Have You Heard), The Quotations, (Imagination), The Capris (There’s A Moon Out Tonight) and Joey Dee (Peppermint Twist)
Master of Ceremonies is Cool Bobby B, host of WLNG’s, “The DooWop Stop” oldies show. Whether you are of a certain age and remember these songs from your teen years, or are just discovering this type of music, you KNOW it will be an unforgettable evening! You won’t be able to refrain from singing along to these classic “golden oldies”, I promise you!
This concert is always a sell out! Come out and join the rest of the audience for a terrific trip down memory lane! This event is a not-to-be missed evening out on the town. The donation for the tickets are $50 each and support the fine work the Lion’s Organization does for the visually impaired, provides scholarships for local students and a host of other charitable activities. Order your tickets early to avoid disappointment because last year’s tickets went quickly! Invite your friends to join you for the best evening out you will have all summer!
