From the organizer:
The Senior Tones, a popular local Do-wop singing group, will perform at a dinner concert on Thursday, September 15, 2011 to benefit Wakefield Alliance Against Violence (WAAV). The event will take place at the Crystal Community Club and will be catered by the Chuck Wagon Diner.
Bob Eldridge, one of WAAV's founding members and its current president, is a member of the Senior Tones.
“We're just a bunch of guys who like to get together and sing, have a good time,” he says modestly.
However, the smooth harmonies and witty banter of their polished performances, as well as the snappy, coordinated outfits worn by the singers, hint at a group of men who work hard at their craft in order to show their audiences a good time. They sing songs from the 1950's and 60's like “Earth Angel” and “Silhouettes” and tunes by the Everly Brothers, Roy Orbison, and Elvis Presley.
Tickets are $30 per person, and include hors d'oeuvres, a sumptuous dinner buffet, and the concert. The cash bar opens at 6:00 p.m., dinner at 7:00 p.m. and the show beginning at 8:00.
WAAV is a not-for-profit, community based organization that was organized in 2007 and is working to end bullying and domestic violence in Wakefield. Proceeds raised by this event will go to providing educational programs to our schools on the subjects of bullying and teen dating violence.
Tickets may be purchased at the Wakefield Daily Item business office, 26 Albion Street, or by calling Bob Eldridge at 781-246-1825. The Crystal Community Club is located at 71 Preston Street.
