Doo-wop comes to Holy Cross in Flushing

By Steve Mosco

The voices of yesteryear return to Holy Cross High School for the 14th annual Father’s Club Doo-Wop Spectacular on Saturday, April 21, at 7:30 p.m.

Reminisce with doo-wop stars John Kuse & the Excellents, the Tymes, Barbara Harris & the Toys, the Original Chimes, the Knockouts and the Encounters backed by the Coda Band.

All reserved-seating tickets are $40 and can be purchased by calling 718-279-0470 or by calling the Holy Cross office in Flushing at 718-886-7250, ext. 574. Tickets can also be purchase the night of the show at the door.

John Wheelen, a member of the Holy Cross Father’s Club, has chaired this event for close to 15 years. He said the doo-wop night is a wonderful night out and a great way to raise money for Holy Cross.

“It’s a nice little money-maker for the school. The Father’s Club is staffed by volunteers, we don’t make any more off the show,” he said. “These are the real acts from way back when. It’s a great night out.”
