UP­PER DARBY » Up­per Darby Town­ship salutes vet­er­ans with an “Oldies Night” fea­tur­ing live per­for­mances by the cel­e­brated Bobby Ry­dell, Lou Christie and The First Ladies of Rock and Soul at 7 p.m. Oct. 7 at the Up­per Darby Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter, 601 N. Lans­downe Ave., Drexel Hill.

Tick­ets are $40 for re­served seat­ing; $35 for vet­er­ans. The show is hosted by ra­dio per­son­al­ity Lou Costello of Cruisin’ 92.1 WVLT FM. Mayor Tom Mi­cozzie rec­og­nizes lo­cal Vet­er­ans to kick off the show.

“This is an in­cred­i­ble night of mu­sic that will take peo­ple back to the late ‘50s and early ‘60s when early rock ‘n’ roll, doo-wop, and teen idol croon­ers was all the rage and the mu­sic we lis­tened to on our tran­sis­tor ra­dios,” said Harry Di­et­zler, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of per­form­ing arts cen­ter.

“Part of the ticket pro­ceeds will help to jump start a Vet­er­ans Me­mo­rial within Up­per Darby Town­ship,” said Lou Ballezzi, who is pro­duc­ing the show and who pro­duces and per­forms with The First Ladies of Rock ‘n Soul.

Ap­pear­ing along with le­gendary teen idol Bobby Ry­dell and dis­tinct falsetto per­for­mance of fel­low ‘60s hit-maker Lou Christy, the First Ladies of Rock and Soul start off the evening by turn­ing the clock back to a time and place in mu­sic his­tory that only comes around once. Their per­for­mance in­cludes hits from the Supremes, Martha Reeves and the Van­del­las, The Shirelles, The Marvel­letes, and Mary Wells. With a mu­si­cal line-up that in­cludes “Da Do Ron Ron,” “Go­ing to the Chapel,” “Be My Baby,” “Too Many Fish in the Sea,” “Stop! In the Name of Love,” “The Lo­co­mo­tion,” “Will You Still Love Me To­mor­row?” au­di­ence mem­bers will en­joy an elec­tri­fy­ing per­for­mance by this “girl group.”

The Up­per Darby Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter is jointly spon­sored by Up­per Darby Town­ship Mayor and Coun­cil and the Up­per Darby School Dis­trict Board of School Direc­tors through the Depart­ment of Recre­ation and Leisure Ser­vices.
