***** The Fabulons *****

Something, a-bit different for you guys this morning…rather than telling you about “another” restaurant where you can stuff your faces, I thought I’d tell you about a terrific- local 1950s-1960s oldies band The Fabulons who have a load of FREE SHOWS scheduled this Summer down here in old South Florida.

The Fabulons…a 6 piece band, have been around for 25 years. Over the years, I have seen this band something like 10 times…as I said before they are terrific and do great covers of artists like The Beatles, Chubby Checker, The Drifters, The Beach Boys. You can check The Fabulons’ website www.fabulons.com for schedule/playlist.

So…if old Rock N Roll is your game, you now have a great group who will entertain you for free—this Summer.

    jeff, like you i have seen the Fabulons a number of time. they are excellent. they are set to headline Deerfield’s july 4th celebration and their show is free on the beach. by the way did you know that the Fabulons were in the movie Boynton Beach Memoirs?

  2. DRS says...

    The Fabulons are one of the best oldies bands that I have seen. They have been around for years and every time that I have seen them they put on a great show. I highly recommend that Jeff eats readers catch this band in action.

    Hi Jeff – I was quite surprised and flattered reading your comments about The Fabulons on your website. I am the drummer in the band (for all those 25 years). Can’t thank you enough for your kind words and your post, as well as Linda C and DRS. As noted, we will be (are always) doing shows all around S. Florida – please introduce yourself if you happen to make it to one. Thanks for the website listing for the schedule updates, and one can get on our e-mail list as well. Keep those interesting & informative restaurant reviews coming!

    I have been in boynton beach for close to 25 years. I can’t even count how many times I have seen The Fabulons and I will tell you that they have always been outstanding.

    jeff, this is one of the best oldies band working the area. they literally can play anything.
    like you, i highly recommend that your readers try and get out to see them in action. trust me, they really are that good.

      DR:

      I recently caught The Fabulons at a private country club party. These guys literally can play anything. In addition to many great hits from the 50s and 60s they do disco and music all the way to 2011. Very entertaining and versatile.
      For those looking to see them, they are doing public shows in June in Jupiter and July in WPB. You can check their schedule at their website.

      I also heard an interesting story, that on November 13, 2011 The Fabulons are going to appear at the Woodfield Country Club. As part of that appearance, I understand that they will be performing with Johnny Contardo who was Sha Na Na’s lead singer. I love 50s & 60s rock n roll and Johnny back when was one of the greatest tenors with a phenomenal falsetto. This appearance is private but the show should be amazing as The Fabulons are terrific and Contardo from recent You Tube footage still has amazing pipes.

  8. LARRY says...

    Saw the Fabulons this weekend. Really good band. They do some really great versions of the classic rock n roll hits.
    Check their schedule and don’t miss them.

  11. Steven Weiss says...

    Just got home from seeing the The Fabulons at Woodfield Country Club in Boca Raton.
    They are really good and they did a set with Sha Na Na’s Johnny Contardo on lead. He is was really good.
    The Fabulons play all over the area.

    Jeff, Last Sunday afternoon I saw the Fabulons. They are a really good band and covered many of the great rock n roll hits of the past 50 years. They have both a male and female leads and are extremely versatile.
    During their performance Johnn Contardo formerly of Sha Na Na did a whole set. Johnny still has the pipes and is as personable as ever. he is a great showman. I highly recommend that people catch the Fabulons as they play all over South Florida. From what I understand Johnny is from California and this was a rare visit to our area. I did hear that in early December on Carnival he is doing a 1 week cruise out of Ft Lauderdale. If you don’t remember Johnny, just go to You Tube and type in Johnny Contardo or Sha Na Na. Johnny has one of the greatest rock n roll voices of all time.

    Great band,there is no mention of their names on their website or any of the online info about them. Can you mention their names or is it a privacy issue with them? Which one of them is the songwriter? Love the group.
