The Flamingos – loved by fans, revered by fellow singers and enshrined forever into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as eternal proof of it all. From the time he wrote and sang lead on “Lovers Never Say Goodbye”, Terry Johnson knew he had created something transcendent. With the release of “I Only Have Eyes for You” a year later, The Flamingos reputation was cemented as the pre-eminent vocal group of their era. Rolling Stone magazine even called them, “one of the, if not the, best” of the time. The singles and the albums – totaling 9 national smash hits – just kept on coming, and even though the original group splintered when Terry left in 1962, the Flamingos live on today with Johnson’s new spotlight companions, Starling Newsome and Stan Prinston. “Nobody Loves Me Like You”, “Besame Mucho”, “I’ll Be Home”, “Mio Amore”, “Begin the Beguine” and songs like “Ebb Tide” and “I Who Have Nothing” from their Diamond Anniversary CD are on the menu for this feast of timeless music and style. Class personified, voices of champagne, ambassadors for romance – welcome The Flamingos to the Curtis Peterson on July 23rd.
The Mystics were one of the most loved street corner groups of the 1950’s and remain a crowd-favorite today. Their biggest hit, “Hushabye” made the national charts in 1959 and the follow-up, “Don’t Take the Stars”, became a collector’s classic over the years. Both featured the original lead voice of Phil Cracolici, who still fronts the group today. Cracolici, along with his nephew George Galfo, perform all over the country telling tales of Brooklyn street corners at a time when the locale was bursting with vocal group talent. Joined by Rocky Marsicano (of Lenny Cocco & the Chimes) and Ralph Rati (of New York’s Music Box show band), the originals show no signs of slowing down, nearly 6 decades after the group’s inception. The Mystics’ show is an endearing and joyful romp through 50’s and 60’s classics you
