Classic Urban Harmony announces here our upcoming events for the next nine months so you can mark your calendars way in advance. We know there are many R&B and Doo Wop events you can attend, and we try to help publicize and attend many of them ourselves. But we work very hard to produce concerts in one small but vital segment of our music that is often neglected. All Classic Urban Harmony produced concerts are ALL ACAPPELLA, all the time. We are the only people doing monthly acappella concerts and we can only keep going with your support.
Lots of exciting events coming up – Gaynel Hodge returns from The Netherlands April 21 to sing with Quiet Storm on Doo Wop Explosion 3. One of New Jersey’s legendary acappella groups, Reunion, comes out of retirement to sing for us at Roxy & Dukes (January 15) and West Chester PA (June 23). Joel Katz reactivates the Dynamics to sing acappella for us at Roxy & Dukes (Oct 15) and with a band at West Chester PA (Nov 4). [Yes, we still only produce acappella shows, but we’re emceeing this last one!] De’Sean Dooley singing Orioles’ songs acappella backed by Quiet Storm at West Chester PA (June 23). Plus a lot of great acappella coming up from groups like Quiet Storm, Frankie & the Fashions, Re-MemberThen, the Copians, Street Corner Five, Nostalgia 5, 5/3 Woodland, the Bronx Creations, The Traditions, The Right Directions, Sidestreet and many more!
