Harbor Lights

Harbor Lights


With the amazing success of the musical hit "Jersey Boys" touring throughout the country, and the even more recent emergence of "Straight No Chaser" into the marketplace, the a cappella Doo Wop sound has never been more in the forefront. Audiences of all ages are thirsting for this fun, uplifting harmonic vocal style that simply makes you feel really good.

Five seasoned entertainers with individual histories of performances at The Whitehouse in DC, the 100th Olympiad in Atlanta, live international broadcasts on Voice of America, and tours in Europe to entertain US troops, George Carl, Dave Mitchell, Cheryl De rosier, Jimmy Calinski and Fernando Rodriguez came together 10 years ago to become Harbor Lights.

As they break into song it takes the audience a while to realize that there is no instrumental accompaniment. Not even a pitch pipe. The group laughingly terms it as "singing without a net". Their unique vocal arrangements bring the tunes together seamlessly. Who needs a band?

As they move through the show they fold the history of the music into their presentation and the audience becomes part of the show. Stirring renditions of Under the Boardwalk, The Lion Sleeps Tonight and My Girl transports the audience back to a more simple romantic time when life was far less complicated. The show is a musical journey with a happy ending.

Harbor Lights : No Strings Attached

Review: No Strings Attached" is Harbor Lights' fourth album on the Collectables label. As in their three previous albums, the emphasis is on vocal and production excellence. This album really showcases the group's range of sound, from the poppy Connie Francis hit "Where The Boys Are", to the Doo Woppy "Sunday Kind of Love"classic by The Harptones. The "Motown" sound shines through with a Ronnie Spector flavored performance of "Be My Baby, and in "Mister Blue" the group captures the smooth, soft as velvet sound of the fabulous "Fleetwoods" Because each individual in the group is a distinctive lead singer, Harbor Lights offers great versatility. Each individual tune on the album has a completely different flavor in terms of lead and vocal backgrounds. This keeps it interesting and fresh. On this album Harbor Lights has added a subtle bed of vocal percussion, without jeopardizing the integrity of the a cappella sound.

Songlist: Sh-Boom, Where The Boys Area, Little Darlin', Mister Blue, Hey Senorita, Since I Don't Have You, All I Have To Do Is Dream, Sunday Kind of Love, Be My Baby, Book of Love

Harbor Lights : Absolutely Acappella

Review: Indiana's own four-man, one woman Harbor Lights bring us their second classic Doo-Wop collection, featuring ten of our all-time favorite hits. They're all here, a heartbreaking "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow," "Venus," "The Wanderer," "Harbor Lights," "It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday," "Denise," "My Girl," "Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye," "Only Sixteen" and "Daddy's Home." Rich, solid basslines and pitch-perfect leads with the kind of attitude and feeling that used to create overnight hits, this is the sweet, juicy Doo-Wop a lot of groups from the east coast wish they could sing. Particular fine are Cheryl DeRosier's leads-listen to her nail "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow" and "Harbor Lights," and you'll see what we mean.

Songlist: Will You Love Me Tomorrow?, Venus, The Wanderer, Harbor Lights, It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday, Denise, My Girl, Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye, Only Sixteen, Daddy's Home

Harbor Lights : Almost Acappella

Review: When we want to hear authentic Doo Wop, we think of Indiana. That's right, Indiana-4-man, 1-woman Harbor Lights is the real deal, with the genuine New York Doo Wop sound. On "Almost" they nail Doo Wop standards like "Come Go With Me," "Little Star," "Pretty Little Angel Eyes" and "The Lion Sleeps Tonight." They add a female lead to Ben E. King's "Stand By Me," and reinterpret pop hits like the Temptations' "Just My Imagination" and Peter & Gordon's "I Go To Pieces" becomes an a cappella classic. Ricky Nelson's "Poor Little Fool" is a sweet, nostalgic winner, as is Richie Valens' "Donna." Some accompaniment. "Almost" is the soul of East Coast Doo Wop from America's heartland!

Songlist: Come Go With Me, Poor Little Fool, Gee Whiz, Little Star, Stand By Me, Pretty Little Angel Eyes, Just My Imagination, I Go To Pieces, Donna, The Lion Sleeps Tonight
