Merry Christmas from The Doo Wop Project

Tracing the evolution of Doo Wop from the classic sound of five guys singing tight harmonies on a street corner to the biggest hits on the radio today. The Doo Wop Project will put a holiday spin on a show featuring stars of Broadway’s hits Jersey Boys, Motown: The Musical, and Chazz Palminteri's A Bronx Tale, bringing an unparalleled authenticity of sound and vocal excellence to recreate -- and in some cases entirely reimagine -- some of the greatest music in American pop and rock history. In their epic shows DWP takes audiences on a journey from foundational tunes of groups like the Crests, Belmonts and Flamingos through their influences on the sounds of Smokey Robinson, The Temptations, and The Four Seasons all the way to DooWopified versions of modern musicians like Michael Jackson, Jason Mraz and Maroon 5.
