Evelyn and I were rockin and a rollin', swingin' and a swayin,' with the golden hits of the 50's and 60's, tonight, courtesy of The Four Preps.
These guys appeared at the Old Town Temecula Community Theater Friday night and we were thoroughly entertained.
True professionals, the show started on time, Bruce Belland, the original lead singer of the Four Preps led us from hit to hit, highlighting songs from a variety of groups . . . songs like Sh-Boom, Little Darlin', Wimoweh (The Lion Sleeps Tonight), Earth Angel, Unchained Melody, and their own million sellers, "26 Miles (Santa Catalina)", "Big Man," "Down by the Station," every one of which brought back memories of an earlier era which some of us call . . . 'the good old days.'
Old Town Temecula Community Theater is a fairly small venue, with only 361 seats, which made for an intimate setting. It's almost as thought the artists were singing to you personally.
The house appeared to be around 60-65% full. This is largely because the Four Preps agreed to step in on short notice when another act canceled at the last minute. The promoters had a little more than two weeks to get fannies into seats by way of ticket sales.
Those that made it to the show were thoroughly entertained.
I'd love to bring The Four Preps to Escondido. Our demographics in North San Diego County are such that a lot of folks in our age bracket would likely turn out. Worth looking into.
They are on tour so if they come into your area . . . tear the cobwebs off that silly old wallet, fish out a couple of bills and buy some tickets. It'll be an evening you'll remember and you'll impress the hell out of the lady of your life.
What a night!
