DUDES of DOO-WOP are primarily a vocal based band consisting of:
Keyboards, bass vocals - Manny Sifonios
Drums, vocals - Tony Pennisi
Guitar, vocals - Chris Ambrose
Doo-wop is a style of music which started in the 50’s in the streets of New York where there were no instruments to help, they made up for it with rhythmic bass lines and high falsettos creating a wonderful boppy sound.
Capturing the true essence of the 50’s with their vocal abilities, the trio sound more like a 5 or 6 piece band covering music by: Platters, Four seasons, Elvis, Diamonds, Jackie Wilson, Zodiacs, Contours, Marcels, Daddy Cool, Ray Charles and many more.
Each member of the band has played with countless artists and together share over 70 years in the music industry.
For a professional and entertaining experience, you must give the Dudes of Doo-Wop a try!!
Remember when pub bands were live and loud, as were your mates, and the Sunday session was the weekend event ?
Old Skool play all the classics from the 70’s till now (though most of the good music has already been written).
John and Garry are survivors in a fickle industry and have been playing together for more than 40 years.
They know each other backwards and this reflects in the performance - solid and tight with a great selection of music.
Both are accomplished musicians and present a professional show with dynamic guitar and vocals with the raw sound of a live band, without the over production of the live music scene today.
These are songs everybody knows and has a special memory of, delivered with the respect these hits deserve.
