Includes performance notes

In 1964 the legendary pop group The Drifters recorded Artie Resnick and Kenny Young's "Under the Boardwalk." It has become one of the most recognized popular songs ever recorded. Have fun singing this audience pleaser by making up a visual plan for your performance. For example, you could wear colorful shirts and sunglasses, or create simple choreography to showcase the tenors and basses when they sing the melody on the refrain. Any visual references in the text could be accompanied by appropriate gestures that entertain your listeners. Allow the syncopated rhythms to sound free and agile while maintaining a god connected flow to the singing. Four copies of the sheet music arrangement plus a CD featuring the full performance plus part-predominant tracks (Tenor, Lead, Baritone, Bass), sung with lyrics.

What a fascinating blend of two great uniquely American styles of vocal harmony! 'Silhouettes' was a hit single by the Rays in 1957. Tom Gentry's arrangement is an audience pleaser that can incorporate visual enhancements such as sunglasses, leather jackets, and choreography. Be sure to let the 'doo-wop' swing feeling be natural and unrushed, when the audience can understand the humor of the story on the text 'you're on the wrong block.' Feel free to experiment with the smoothness of the bass line by having the section sing on an open vowel such as 'du' rather than 'dm.' "Under the Boardwalk." has become one of the most recognized popular songs ever recorded. Allow the syncopated rhythms to sound free and agile while maintaining a god connected flow to the singing. These songs will add a cool touch of nostalgia to your repertoire and are surefire audience pleasers.

Songlist: Under the Boardwalk, Silhouettes, Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight, Crazy Little Thing Called Love
