Rock'n on the River Front
Sunday, August 23, 2009 from 3 pm to 7 pm, Millville Recreation will host its second block party of the summer season. Emcee and producer of this year's show is local radio and tv personality, Corky Warren, who also produces, Corky's Time Machine. This years event will open with the Angeltones. They are a four member, all female doo wop group located out of central New Jersey, performing songs from the 50's up to the 70's. With their distinctive styles, the Angletones leave audiences feeling invigorated, nostalgic and wanting more from this most sought after female vocal group.
Next on board will be the Emeralds. Bobby Burgese and his group have been singing acappella for many years in Philly and the surrounding areas. The Emeralds legacy today builds to new heights with accomplished singers who all have a track record of hits, both local and national.
Danny and the Juniors will be headlining the all dance musical production. With the success of At The Hop, Danny and the Juniors have a gold record. The song quickly became a monumental hit on five continents reaching #1 on the pop, country and rhythm and blues charts. It stands today as the #23 all time biggest record according to Billboard magazine list of #1 hits. Now in their fifth decade as performers, the group still appears at a multitude of venues including conventions, theatres, clubs, casinos, fairs and festivals. Their wholesome fun loving stage show is embellished with comedy, impressions, bright costumes and audience participation.
