Photos from the Long Island Doowop Weekend.

Now I'm back from the States I will be putting some of the many photos I took on my travels. This batch is of some of the acts who appeared at the Doowop Weekend at Hauppage in Long Island. First, here are Cleveland Still and the Dubs, one of the most effective acts on the two days.
Here are the Diablos, who were excellent on The Wind.
Still looking sprightly, and doing his original pop hits such as Go Jimmy Go and Just A Dream, here is Jimmy Clanton.
Also sounding good, here are Jimmy Gallagher and the Passions.
This is A Million To One artists Jimmy Charles.
Here are the Mystics, best known for Hushabye.
A surprise to me was Chuck Girard, who was lead singer of both the Castells (Sacred) and the Hondells (Little Honda).
I had never seen the Majors before either. Here they are, with one member playing the She's A Troublemaker role.
The original girl group, this is The Chantels.
Here is Linda Jansen, original lead singer of The Angels.
The Fireflies.
Here is Johnny Farina, of Santo and Johnny.
Kathy Young was excellent on her big hit A Thousand Stars.
Always certain to put on a great performance, here is Chris Montez.
This is Larry Chance with The Earls.
One of the best acts of day two were The Tokens, with lead singer Jay Siegel sounding just the way he did back in the day.
 Even better were the Jive Five, featuring Eugene Pitt.
Here is Willie Winfield, original member of The Harptones.
Finally, here is Jimmy Beaumont of the Skyliners.
