CONCERT- THE DYNAMIC SUPERIORS

CONCERT- THE DYNAMIC SUPERIORSIn the early 1970's, The Dynamic Superiors, a Washington DC quintet, signed with Motown and found great success on the Soul Charts as one of Motown's most unique groups. After signing with Motown, they moved to Detroit and were immediately assigned to the renowned Ashford and Simpson song writing duo, who wrote most of their material. This proved to be a winning combination which produced several hits including" Shoe, Shoe Shine" and "Leave It Alone", both of which made the Top 20 on R&B Charts. After leaving Motown in 1976, the group returned to Washington DC and continues to flourish nationally and abroad. Unfortunately, the untimely death of lead singer, Tony Washington, caused a rift in the group and they drifted their separate ways, performing individually until 1979. The Dynamic Superiors got back together in 2005. The new look and rich harmonic sound of The Dynamic Superiors today is more than refreshing. Fans throughout the country have restored their appreciation of these voices as they tour the east coast concert circuit. After three decades and still going strong, the vibrant sound of The Dynamic Superiors is indeed a must see and must feel experience for "old school" music lovers everywhere.

Forever
The years 1999 and 2000 bought additional changes to the group. After almost 30 years in the business, Billy Jones decided to end his public career to concentrate on family. That move left a small void in the group which was soon filled with David Ackers just in time for the groups 30 year Anniversary celebration and show. David's voice and singing style that gave the group a renewed vigor with a familiar sound. In July, 2000 Skip added a female voice to their and show. Barbara Malone brought the group a different melodic sound and was accepted by all who heard her.

Only in her teens, Dee Dee Sharp became an international star. She toured the U.S. and Europe quite often as part of Dick Clark's "Caravan of Stars," working with just about every major act in the golden age of rock and roll. Hits followed: "Gravy (For My Mashed Potatoes)," "Ride," "Do the Bird," "Wild," "Never Pick a Pretty Boy," and "I Really Love You" in 1965--Sharp's first R&B record. In the late 1970's and into the 80's, Sharp recorded albums on the Philadelphia International label, including the critically acclaimed, "What Colour is Love" and "Dee Dee."

AFTERNOON TEA: “Sting, Stang, Stung” Rosemary Loar, Vocalist; Frank Ponzio, Pianist

Rosemary Loar has reinvented the music of Sting, one of the pop world's iconic songwriters. With wit and sensitivity, Loar advances the view that Sting is the Cole Porter of this generation, a man who is not afraid to write lyrics that are intelligent, or that are simple, profound and universal. The glorious result: a whole new songbook of jazz Sting standards. Loar breathes new life into the music of Sting with inventive interpretations of such classics as "Fields of Gold" and "Message In A Bottle." The music ranges from swing to samba and jazz/pop to crooning torch.
