COUNTDOWN TO NYE
The Doo Wop Project begins at the beginning, 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. 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.
Featuring stars of Broadway’s hits Jersey Boys, Motown: The Musical, Chazz Palminteri's A Bronx Tale, and more the Doo Wop Project brings 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.
That Motortown Band brings to life - at each performance - the music of Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, the Temptations, The Supremes, The Four Tops, and so many others. TMB is a talented group of vocalists and musicians who have played to sold-out houses in Philadelphia and Baltimore, just to cite a few.
The musical director for the band is Grammy-Award nominated producer, composer, arranger, vocalist and guitarist, Johnny Gale who is a renowned expert in the authentic styling of classic soul, doo wop, R&B, blues and rock.
That Motortown Band will be joined by Ryan Shaw who has been nominated for three Grammy awards for songs co- produced by Johnny Gale. Ryan Shaw began his career in 1998 in Tyler Perry's play I Know I've Been Changed. At the end of the play's run he began doing Motown covers in New York, joining the group Fabulous Soul Shakers in 2004
In addition the band will be joined by Garfield Fleming a Soul Singing Vocalist of legendary status having been a member of the Delfonics for 25 years with William Hart.
