Step into Doo Wop Nostalgia with the Dubs at the Arts/Harmony Hall Regional Center April 21
By Annamarya Scaccia
Sometimes, there’s nothing like a classic doo wop song to put you in a good mood. The genre’s trademark four-part harmonies, simplistic pop beats, and sweetheart lyrics always bring to light a pleasant nostalgia, even for those who weren’t alive during doo wop’s heyday.
But that’s the beauty of doo wop. It can bring together music lovers of all generations because of its good-time feel. And if you’re looking for that sonic magic head down to the Arts/Harmony Hall Regional Center, 10701 Livingston Road in Fort Washington, and let the Dubs take you down memory lane.
The Dubs formed in 1956 after the Five Wings and the Scale-Tones—two short-lived vocal outfits from Harlem, New York—combined. One of the definitive doo wop groups, they are best known for their classic hits “Chapel of Dreams,” “Could This Be Magic,” and “Don’t Ask Me to Be Lonely.” The Dubs’ original lead vocalist, Richard Blandon, passed away in the winter of 1991.
