Video of the Week
Kenny Vance & The Planotones
Zoom, Zoom, Zoom
Here is a video that I had not seen before. It's, Kenny, Frenchy, Johnny and Jimmy strolling through the park doing what they do best. This is off Kenny's Happy Holidays cd.
Little Anthony & the Imperials were on the schedule for my daughter Stacy and I last week at the Villages in Florida. Fighting sinus issues, Anthony did a great job getting through a 22-23 song set. The Imperials, which includes the founding member of the group, Ernest Wright, were superb.
I featured the acappella version of Two People In The World (thank you, Lou Alfano) last week and they did sing it at this show. Anthony was not able to hit all the notes but he was close. In addition to the music, the group was very entertaining as they kept the audience laughing throughout the show. Fun show complete with great memories. If you get an opportunity, make sure you see them.

French Doo Wop? My friend Joe Conroy, who has worked with the Earth Angels and Crystalaires across the pond, has been vacationing in France. I asked him how the Doo Wop was over there and he said this was the closest thing he's found.

In an effort to keep Doo Wop Ramblings a free publication, we are going to offer some of our items to you in the Ramblings Store. Our cost to publish Ramblings is increasing, so I'm looking for ways to monetize the newsletter. Hopefully, this will help us defray some of our costs. Your support is greatly appreciated.
At this time we are not soliciting items to sell in the store. Thank you.
