Legends reunite to pass the torch in ‘Doo Wop Generations’

This Saturday, March 17, at 9:30 p.m., join R&B legend Little Anthony, Sha Na Na’s Jon “Bowzer” Bauman and producer TJ Lubinsky in “Doo Wop Generations,” a new concert special that reunites the original artists of Doo Wop as they pass the torch to a new generation of singers.

Shot in Asbury Park, New Jersey, it’s a sentimental, emotion-packed night of nostalgia as the younger singers pay tribute to the veteran artists who inspired them. Enjoy these special performances alongside stories about the original Doo Wop singers — their triumphs, challenges and eternal love for this music — and inspirational recollections from friends and loved ones.

Look forward to these performances and many more:

  • “Runaround Sue” – The Virginia Gentlemen with The Del-Satins
  • “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” – The Alley Cats with Jay Siegel’s Tokens
  • “Book of Love” – The Tee-Tones
  • “Sh-Boom” – Street Corner Renaissance
  • “Dedicated To The One I Love” – The Lovettes
  • “Lollipop” – Shy Of A Dozen
  • “In The Still Of The Night” – Fred Parris & The Five Satins
  • “This I Swear” – Kenny Vance & The Planotones
