Add to Calendar 08-09-2013 08-09-2013 15 The Girl Group Sound Spectacular The story of the girl group sound is a unique New York story in which young writers, producers, and musicians from all walks of life collaborated to create a style that celebrated American teenage dreams, in songs that combined raw emotional urgency and sophisticated musical production. College girls, church girls, high school prodigies and secretaries from Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan became sensations overnight. Kids everywhere responded to their music, sending the girl groups to the top of the charts, dominating the airwaves for several years and defining the era between early rock and the British invasion. Keep in mind the girl group sound was created by a fully integrated collective in the pre-Civil Rights era, and all involved formed tight bonds of personal and professional friendship, many still strong today. While generations of music fans can sing girl group songs by heart, many of these great singers aren't known by name. On September 8th, BB Kings will present The Girl Group Sound Spectacular, a celebration of the Girl Group sound and a salute to the women behind the unforgettable hits. Featuring: Baby Washington ("That's How Heartaches are Made") Barbara Harris (of The Toys "A Lovers Concerto") Beverly Warren (of the Raindrops "The Kind of Boy You Can't Forget") Lillian Walker-Moss (of The Exciters "Tell Him") Louise Murray (of The Jaynetts "Sally Go Round the Roses") Margaret Ross-Williams (of The Cookies "Chains") Maxine Brown ("Oh No, Not My Baby") Nanette Licari (of Reparata and the Delrons "Whenever a Teenager Cries") Toni Wine ("A Groovy Kind of Love") Backed by The Boyfriends, Jeremy Chatzky, musical director. Many of these women have friendships and collaborations that span the years. Their families are friends, they celebrate each other's milestones, and whenever they get together, they cannot help themselves, they sing! They harmonize with each other the way us mere mortals just breathe. They are thrilled to come to BB Kings and invite their many generations of fans to join in the fun. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=142169 B.B. King Blues Club & Grill true DD/MM/YYYY
