Nov 05, 2015

The Patrons of the Arts Society will bring the classic R&B sound of the 50’s and 60’s to the Tinnin Fine Arts Center with “Doo Wop, Pop & Soul” on Thursday, November 19 at 7 p.m.

“Doo Wop” performs the best-known hits of the 50’s and 60’s R&B genre, including “Come and Go With Me,” “Book of Love,” and “The Great Pretender.” Led by local-born musician Jon Sousan, whose shows “Take it to the Limit” (Eagles tribute) and “Bad Moon Rising” (CCR tribute) have been performed at the Tinnin Center in the past, “Doo Wop” pays tribute to great groups like “The Platters,” “Four Tops,” “The Temptations,” and more.

“R&B in the 50’s and 60’s was one of the most influential music genres of all time, leaving its mark on pop, modern R&B, and disco, among others,” said Tim Thompson, Director of the Tinnin Fine Arts Center. “Thanks to the Patrons of the Arts Society, we get to have this concert, right here in Poplar Bluff, for an affordable price.”

Tickets are $10 each and are available online at trcc.edu/tinnin, at the Poplar Bluff Chamber of Commerce, the college Student Accounts office and at the door.
