Life Could Be a Dream
Doo-Wop is a form of American music whose development closely followed that of rock and roll in the middle of the 20th century, but actually began on the streets of Nueva York in the '40s. Imbued with multi-part harmonies and an attention to lush melodicism that dives deep into the romantic reservoir of the nation, the doo-wop movement produced artists like The Chords, who wrote a nifty tune called “Sh-Boom.” This vocal excursion was followed by classics of the genre, like “Book of Love” by The Monotones in 1958. Though the genre faded—along with a lot of other subgenres—with the British Invasion, it's been resurrected many times in the intervening years. And while decidedly non-American acts like The King Khan and BBQ Show have actually evolved the sound toward higher levels, traditionalists like The Doo-Wop Project continue to produce pure iterations of the famous sound of legends like The Four Seasons and The Marcels. The Doo-Wop Project performs a program of their versions of contemporary pop favorites laced with seasonal favorites on Friday, Dec. 21 at 7pm at Popejoy Hall on the UNM campus. Tickets range in price from $25 to $64, so do go: it's like paradise up above. (August March)
