The Lake Mahopac Rotary Club proudly  presents its 4th Annual Doo Wop Rock and Roll Oldies Show on Friday May 6th at the Mahopac High School, 421 Baldwin Place Road, Mahopac, NY starting at 7 PM.

The oldies show will be headlined by  Shirley Alston Reeves - original lead voice of The Shirelles in addition to Bob Miranda & The Happenings and a return appearance by  Larry Chance & The Earls.
 
The Shirelles became known throughout the world when they placed six singles in the Top Ten, and their songs have become classics and have since been covered by many artists, including the Mamas and the Papas and Dusty Springfield.  The Beatles covered “Baby, It’s You” as well as the lesser known “Boys”.
 
“Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”, written by Carole King, was featured in the hit movie “Dirty Dancing” with Shirley on lead vocal.  “Mama Said” also led by Ms. Reeves was used in a major promotional campaign for Pepto Bismol.  She also has a Wendy’s commercial in her long list of achievements, as well as one of the first Rock and Roll Coca-Cola commercials.
 
1996 Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Shirley Alston Reeves, is loved by all who have had the pleasure of meeting and hearing her golden vocals.  Her show is designed to please even the toughest musical appetites.  Shirley will  perform her other timeless classics such as “Soldier Boy”, “This is Dedicated To The One I Love”, “Foolish Little Girl”, and  “Tonight’s The Night”.
 
 In May 1966, The Happenings virtually exploded onto the national charts with their first single release, "See You In September".
 
The song quickly spiraled up the charts to become an international #1 record throughout the entire summer. Most recently, Entertainment Magazine has listed "See You In September" in the top 100 summer songs of all time! The Happenings, continuing to become a major force in the music industry, soon released their next smash hit "Go Away Little Girl" and hugely successful album "Bye, Bye, So Long, Farewell". With Bob Miranda, the lead singer of The Happenings and the voice that literally spearheaded the group into international stardom, many great releases were to follow including the classic hits, "I Got Rhythm", "My Mammy", and a virtual treasure chest of hit albums!
 
Rounding out the talent for the evening will be the ever popular Larry Chance and The Earls.  The Earls, originally from the Bronx, NY, present a unique combination of classic doo wop vocals and upbeat contemporary sound.  
 
 Whether stealing the show at the Bay Front Auditorium in Tampa, or wowing the crowd in a local night club, The Earls are a class act.  Their novel approach to the oldies of the early rock years bring back memories, while still exciting audiences of all ages who are new to the sound of The Earls.
 
The Earls’ fans will certainly be in anticipation for the group to sing their many hits which include “Life Is But A Dream”, “I Believe” and  “Remember Then”.
 
The evening of rock and roll is being sponsored by PCSB Bank, Tompkins Mahopac Bank,  in addition to Dwyer Agency, Joseph J. Smith Funeral Home, Town of Carmel Police Benevolent Association (PBA), Bucci Brothers Deli and Catering, and Mahopac News.
 
Tickets for the show are $35 each ($30 in advance) and can be purchased at PCSB Bank (Mahopac Branch), Bucci Brothers Deli, and Tompkins Mahopac  Bank (Mahopac branch).

The musical sounds of the 1950's and 1960's will once again be filling the auditorium of the Mahopac High School on Friday, May 8th as the Lake Mahopac Rotary Club will be presenting its 3rd Annual Rock and Roll Oldies Show starting at 7 PM.
 
Headlining this year's fundraising show for the Rotary Club will be Jay Siegel's Tokens, featuring the group's original lead singer - Jay Siegel.  In October of 1961, The Tokens recorded what has become one of the biggest hit songs of all time, "The Lion Sleeps Tonight".  Their hit celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2011.  "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" has enjoyed resurgence in multi-generational popularity thanks to its prominence in the long-running Broadway hit show, The Lion King.  The Tokens were inducted into the Doo Wop Hall of Fame on March 14, 2015.
 
Also appearing on the show will be Barbara Harris & The Toys known for their # 1 1965 song, "A Lover's Concerto".  In addition to appearances on TV's popular music shows such as "Shindig", "Hullaballo" and Dick Clark's "American Bandstand", The Toys also appeared in a movie, "It's a Bikini World", along with The Animals, The Castaways and The Gentrys.
 
Vito Picone & The Elegants will be making another return appearance by public demand.  The Elegants are remembered for their # 1 1958 single "Little Star", which sold more than 2.5 million copies world-wide on ABC Paramount's subsidiary label "APT".  The Elegants have appeared eight times at Radio City Music Hall, were among the initial doo wop artists to be presented at Carnegie Hall, the first doo wop group to perform at Lincoln Center, and Vito had a cameo appearance in the Oscar-winning movie, "Goodfellas" - to top the list of their many accomplishments.
 
The Oldies Show is being sponsored by Putnam County Savings Bank and Tompkins Mahopac Bank in addition to Joseph J. Smith Funeral Home, Inc., Elder Care Connection, Dwyer Agency, Spain Agency, Miceli Plumbing and Heating, Red Mills Convenience Center, Mahopac News, and Bucci Brothers Deli and Catering.

Hall of Fame singer Donovan becomes a Rotary polio ambassador
Legendary singer and polio survivor Donovan Leitch, better known simply as Donovan, has joined Rotary in its fight to eradicate the paralyzing disease that afflicted him during much of his childhood. Donovan contracted polio at age three in Glasgow, Scotland. The disease weakened his right leg and left it thinner and shorter than the other. Confined to his bed for much of his childhood, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame singer said his father would read him poetry. In a recent interview with the Daily Express, Donovan said that listening to poetry piqued his interest in creative writing. “If I...
World Polio Day toolkit available — start planning now
Rotary's fourth World Polio Day celebration, on 24 October, will highlight extraordinary progress in the eradication campaign and emphasize the work that remains before we wipe out the virus for good. With the number of new cases worldwide nearly halved from this time last year, we have the opportunity to rally our resources and see the last case of polio this year. Health officials and Rotary's celebrity polio ambassadors will head to Atlanta, Georgia, USA, for the event, the first to be held at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It will be streamed live and then will...
Young member uses leadership positions to promote diversity, inclusion
The way Rotary member Todd Jenkins puts it, he's the first generation in his family "to do everything": first to go to college, first to fly on a plane, first to visit another country, and the first to live across state lines. Jenkins, 28, grew up in a low-income neighborhood in Columbia, South Carolina, USA. His family worked hard just to make ends meet. So travel and college seemed out of reach. The eldest of ten children, Jenkins says his goal was to break out of the family status quo and set a positive example for his siblings. He credits his mother with helping him avoid falling into the...
Rotary recommits to ending polio in Nigeria
The World Health Organization has confirmed two cases of wild poliovirus type 1 (WPV1) in Nigeria, the first cases in the country since July 2014. After passing a year without a case of the wild poliovirus, Nigeria was removed from the list of polio-endemic countries in September 2015. These cases – from two local government areas of Borno state – occurred in July 2016. The Government of Nigeria – in partnership with the Global Polio Eradication Initiative – will take immediate steps to respond quickly to the outbreak to prevent further spread of the disease. This response will include...
