Setting the Record Straight - Part 2

Monday, Feb. 17 from 1-3 pm with Anthony Musso, Fee: $15 call[masked]
Setting the Record Straight – Part 2 Hear the fascinating stories about the music and careers of another 50 top recording artists from the 1950’s and 1960’s. Learn how vocalist Jerry Butler was first dubbed “The Iceman,” why Ben E. King described his first year as lead singer of the Drifters as a grueling and harrowing experience, and how Gladys Horton and two childhood friends from Inkster, Michigan (known as The Marvelettes) scored the very first number one hit recording for Motown Records. Hear how Connie Francis first entered the business with an accordion in tow, why Peggy March decided to relocate to Europe and subsequently became a top international star, and learn about the bittersweet performance that a young Bobby Vee gave as the replacement act for his departed idol Buddy Holly. These are the indisputable and accurate accounts as told by the artists themselves, with the intent of finally “Setting the Record Straight!”
