The Alley Cats
THIS IS A PAST EVENTSaturday - May 04, 2013
@ 8:00 pm
Revisit the doo-wop era of the 1950s and 60s when The Alley Cats bring their tight harmonies and universal humor to the historic Marion Palace Theatre on Saturday, May 4 at 8pm.
By bringing their own contemporary style to tunes from the 1950s and 60s, The Alley Cats appeal to fans of all ages, performing a refreshing twist on everyone's favorite doo-wop classics. The four members are a perfect blend of musical talent and comedic timing. The group consists of Brian Brigham, whose solid bass vocals create The Alley Cats musical foundation, and second tenor and founding member Mando Fonseca, who is always ready with a wisecrack or zany remark to draw audience members in with their friendship and spontaneous humor. Rounding out the talented quartet are baritone Frank Romeo, whose smooth vocals melt hearts and ignites spirits the world over, and Brandon Brigham, re-creator of all of those soaring 50s first tenor lines.
The Alley Cats began in 1987 at Fullerton College in California, and landed their first professional gig at Disneyland's "Blast to the Past."
Soon after, they appeared on TV, radio shows, corporate events and at Performing Arts Centers, fairs, festivals, schools, and even a USO show aboard the John C. Stennis aircraft carrier, welcoming home the troops from Iraq. The Alley Cats have opened for such notable artists as Rascal Flatts, The Beach Boys, Chubby Checker, The Coasters, Bill Medley, Sha Na Na and The Tokens, as well as sharing the stage with fellow a cappella artists The Bobs, The Blenders, The Nylons, and Rockapella. Currently, The Alley Cats are the opening act for Jay Leno in Las Vegas.
The Alley Cats have won over audiences nationally with their impeccable four-part harmonies, engaging wit and humor, unbelievable energy and audience participation that appeal to young and old alike. Each performance is accompanied by the sounds of laughter and voices joining in to sing the beloved melodies of yesteryear.
To add to the fun, we'll have 50s and 60s era cars out front, and available in the May Pavilion, a pre-show dinner at 6:30 p.m. with a 50s inspired menu and a root beer float to top off your meal. Cost is $15 per person. Reservations are required. We'll reserve a table for parties of 8 or 10. Call today!
