Comments on the sold-out April2, 2022  show at the Clarion Hotel!

Another fantastic show with DESIRE, JOEL KATZ & GROUP,
and a tremendous performance by THE TOYS!

 You just had to be there!! 
- Nancy Houde (Chicopee, MA) 


Awesome performance from ALL of the groups...especially the TOYS 90-minute set. WOW!
(Gail & Larry Stanton - West Springfield, MA) 
The Toys were fantastic, especially the all-girl groups medley!
(Pat  Bonfiglio - Bronx, NY) 

The whole show was great! You and Gary put in a lot of time preparing these shows...
the Toys were better this time than when they were here for years ago!
(Bruce Hill - Templeton, MA) 

Thank you for having Joel Katz & Dynamics do "What Brought Us Together." I saw the Edsels do that
at a Radio City show in 1990 and the lyrics stuck with me. Maybe because my bride, Carolyn are here 58 years
later! Joel's performance was excellent as well as Desire!
(Dave Ford - Connecticut) 
Great voices! Super experience!
(Joe Rosinski - Feeding Hills, MA) 
What are you doing on Thursday nights?...I want to alert you to one show that may be new to you. It's on Thursday night from 8 - 11:00 pm on the Doo Wop Cafe network. My friends Doc Phil and Tony are two very knowledgeable guys who really keep the music alive. Vocal Group Harmony is what's all about on this show! So tune in The Thursday Night All Request show at!
Have any questions on our shows?
Call Gary at 413-478-0901 or Bob at 413-786-1929! 
We appreciate  your input! 

 Many of you have asked what our policy is concering groups. We try to concentrate on Vocal Group Harmony, with at least one ORIGINAL member from the original group! We do not have somebody's brother, son or daughter,  or cousin of a performer as a headliner! We do not feature a guitar player that played with a group from 50 years ago as a lead other words...NO FLUFF! We try to bring you the very best talent we can find! Have an opinion? ........We'd like to hear from you!

 We operate on an extremely small and tight budget with a small staff that host over 4 events a year. These  events bring close to 2000 people into the Springfield business community. But we can't continue to do this without your support. Ticket office revenues cover only a portion of our operating budget.  Advertising and fundraising allows us to bridge the gap between ticket sales and operating expenses. Without individual donor support we could not keep the curtain up! So, any help from ANY business or individual is MORE than welcome! We will spotlight your business if you would like us to.

Thank you....and let's keep the music (and the shows) alive!
