BOBBY SOX and the JUKEBOX
Stepping into the past, the "FUNADDICTS" morph into an awesome 50's and 60's Review, "BOBBY SOX and the JUKEBOX". This unique and entertaining project features up to three one-hour shows, each with its own distinctive style of music.
Our first set set addresses the best of the Doo Wop era, and opens with the iconic "American Bandstand Boogie". Costumed with 50's "greaser" outfits, letterman jackets, bow ties and T-shirts, you'll love this set if you like the street-corner vocal harmonies of the Marcels, Dion and the Belmonts, and tunes like the "Shoop Shoop Song". Pop hits from Motown may also weaved into this this one hour production, making it a complete set of great American music.
A full Motown Set is costumed in classy, semi-formal attire, reminiscent of the outfits donned by artists like the Temptations, Aretha Franklin and Chubby Checker. Featuring Pop/Soul Music, this set is a great mix of groove and energy.
The British Explosion and American Top-40 set is depicted in the second set. Unforgettable pop hits and driving rock tunes imported from across the Atlantic features The Beatles, Petula Clark, Herman's Hermits, and The Rolling Stones along with music produced by the original "American Idols", the Beach Boys, Sam the Sham, Elvis, Jay and the Americans, the Kingsmen, the Everly Brothers and many more. It's an unbeatable combination of two cultures blended into the perfect musical marriage of memories. Costuming reflects the Hippy culture that dominated the youth fashion scene on both sides of the Atlantic during that time of Peace, Love and Harmony.
