An incredible five act 60s ROCK ‘N ROLL REVIVAL comes to the Mahaffey Theater on Thursday, October 24, 2024 at 7:00 pm.  Here is a description of each of the acts:

The Brooklyn Bridge formed on Long Island when Johnny Maestro, lead singer of the Crests, joined forces with the Del-Satins (Dion’s singers).  Johnny had already had hits with the Crests (“Sixteen Candles,” “The Angels Listened In” and “Step by Step”) which the Bridge continue to perform.  The Bridge had a massive hit, “The Worst That Could Happen,” as well as “Welcome Me Love,” “Blessed is the Rain” and “You’ll Never Walk Alone.”  Original members Jim Rosica and Joe Ruvio continue the great musical Bridge tradition and lead singer Joe Esposito is one of the greatest singers on stage today.

Charlie Thomas’ Drifters combined doo wop, soul, R&B and pop and were the first Afro-American group inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  They had countless hits,  including “There Goes My Baby,” “Save the Last Dance for Me,” “Under the Boardwalk,” “Up on the Roof,” “On Broadway” and “This Magic Moment.”

The Duprees are known worldwide for their beautiful love songs.  Hits include “You Belong to Me,” “Have You Heard,” “Why Don’t you Believe Me” and “My Own True Love.”

Brian Hyland was 16 when his “Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini” was a #1 smash hit, and the teen idol toured with Dick Clark’s Caravan of Stars.  Other hits include “Sealed with a Kiss” and “Gypsy Woman.” Hyland, a New York City native, now resides in Florida.

E’Stefano DiSanto, a Rhode Island native living in Las Vegas, is one of the younger generation of performers devoted to keeping the music of the 60s alive.  He has a Saturday night residency at The Orleans and has won a Best of Las Vegas award.  His current cd, “Rock Around the Clock” can be heard on the Cool Bobby B show on Sirius XM radio.

Five great acts, one great night of countless hits bringing the audience back to wonderful memories of their lives in the unforgettable 60s!
