50's at the Hop 2009
"Gonna Rock around the clock tonight, Gonna rock, rock, rock till the broad day light...". Sorry, but when you get one of those 50's favorites in your head, you just have to enjoy it. This is what happens when you go to see the 50's at the Hop show. You'll hear all the fifties favorites - sung by a very talented cast.
You'll realize how talented they are when the show opens with the song "Let's Go To The Hop". The excitement continues with "Rock Around The Clock", "Labamba", "Summer Time Blues", and "Stand By Me". The Hopettes - Heather Gentry, Shera Haase, Ashley Willford, and Angie Skillern take over the stage singing "Lolly Pop". The Dreamdates David Sanders and Shane Vorhaben rejoin the Hopettes for a few more songs like "Shantilly Lace" and "If You Wanna Dance With Me".
As the Hop singers leave the stage, the Rockin Hop Band takes over performing "Great Balls Of Fire". It was a crowd favorite. The Hopettes brought James, an unsuspecting audience member, to the stage and sang "You Don't Own Me" to him. Then they dressed him in a leather jacket singing "He's A Rebel". Just before the end of the first half, you get to enjoy Gospel greats - "Where Could I Go But To The Lord" and "Swing Down Sweet Chariot". The big finish for the first half was everyone's favorite, "Shout".
The second half includes lots more of your fifties favorites, "Hit The Road Jack", "My Guy", "Are You Lonesome Tonight", "Baby Love", and many, many more. If you've seen this show in the past, you will notice that Shane returned this year for another year with 50's at the Hop. Also returning are Paul Purtle on bass and Jeff "Homie" Whittington on drums. New to the band are Norman Bergen on keyboards, Robert "Bogie" Bohinc on guitar, and Michael Carroll on the wailing sax.
