Joey Dale and The Gigolos: Doo Wop Is Forever

Posted On:

Doo Wop Is Forever at The Green Parrot Sunday Soundcheck

Dress up in your favorite bouffant, duck tail, bowling shirt or leather jacket, poodle skirt or any of your other favorite ’50’s fashions and head down to The Green Parrot  because Joey Dale and The Gigolos, South Florida’s premier Doo Wop group, will be singing all the hits that people love to hear.

Their repertoire includes hits recorded by the Duprees, The Skyliners, The Coasters and many more popular groups of the fifties, and encompasses Doo Wap, Big Band, Motown, Disco, Blues and Rock and Roll, all fun and danceable. As a special treat, Joey will be joined by Doo Wap legend Jimmy Gallagher, lead singer of The Passions, perhaps the most well-known of any white doo wop groups of the 50’s and 60’s.

One of the Passion’s many hits was “Just to Be with You”, released in 1959 and fueled by Gallagher’s impassioned lead vocals, this now-classic chestnut became a top twenty hit on radios a cross America and continues to be an ageless Doo Wap anthem for fans of the genre. As a bit of music trivia, when Gallager’s demo of “Just to Be with You” was first delivered to the  producers at Audicon Records, Gallager was backed by a duo of studio singers called The Cousins–Paul Simon and Carol King.
