“A Night to Remember” at DCA

The Door Community Auditorium in Fish Creek will be alive with the music of the ’50s and ’60s on Saturday, September 12 at 7 pm, when the Doo-Wop Daddies and other special guests perform in “A Night to Remember.”

Door County’s own Gary Lane Van Vorous and Paul Lent are included in a phenomenal cast of performers that seek to bring their audience the oldies – but the goodies.

Based in Milwaukee, The Doo-Wop Daddies capture the sound that became a classic genre for the generations to follow. The Daddies have redefined the doo-wop of 60 years ago into a masterful performance that will bring the audience to its feet. Other special guests include Kim Marie, Larry Lynne and Junior Bradley. Kim Marie recorded her first songs “Jingle Jump” and “Flip Side” when she was only 17 years old. Marie recalls the distinctive styles of Brenda Lee, Connie Francis, and Laverne Baker.

Larry Lynne is a former lead guitarist for the Doo-Wop Daddies in addition to spending time with the doo-wop group the Mad Lads.

Returning to Door County, Grammy-nominated Junior Brantley has recreated the sound and style of Chuck Barry, Little Richard, Jimmy Vaughn, and Jerry Lee Lewis.

Gary Lane Van Vorous graduated from Gibraltar High School in 1960. Leaving the peninsula, Lane hit the road with a number of guy groups, most notably The Tokens, who recorded “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.” In the course of his career, Lane has performed with some of the biggest names in rock and roll, including Gene Pitney, Del Shannon, Lou Christie, and Bobbie Hatfield.

Also a graduate of Gibraltar High School, Paul Lent has toured the Midwest as the lead vocalist for the band Worlds. He is also the co-founder of the group After Dark, which has enjoyed regional success, sharing the stage with renowned artists REO Speed Wagon, Starship, Loverboy, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, and Night Ranger.

From the songs of Bill Haley and the Comets to music of The Righteous Brothers, “A Night to Remember” will recall some of the most memorable singers in rock and roll history.
