Special Greeting from "Under the Streetlamp"
Posted by New Bern Historical Society on Wednesday, May 10, 2017
The New Bern Historical Society will bring Under the Streetlamp back to New Bern, by popular demand, on their nationwide tour, May 21, 2017. Under the Streetlamp will perform their all new show, Rockin’ Around the Clock with favorites from the Four Seasons, Beach Boys, Temptations, Beatles, and much more. This dynamic foursome, a PBS favorite, was sold out in their last appearance here. You can expect them to deliver an electrifying evening of classic hits from the American Radio songbook, bringing their unique blend of tight harmonies and slick dance moves to your favorite Doo-Wop, Motown, and classic Rock ‘n’ Roll hits.
On Sunday, May 21st, the New Bern Convention Center will rock with the sounds of your favorites from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. The show will start at 7:00pm with the Convention Center opening at 5:00pm with seat tagging available. Historical Society Executive Director Mickey Miller is excited to have such a nationally known group in New Bern. “The performers are from the cast of Jersey Boys. The Historical Society is thrilled to bring that kind of talent back to New Bern. They gave us a wonderful show last time and were sold out. I encourage everyone to get their tickets early! Consider gifts for Easter and Mother’s Day.”
