Melding that late-night-crooner-under-a street-lamp-in-Jersey sound with some of today’s biggest hits, The Doo Wop Project and the Omaha Symphony will take audiences on a journey through the evolution of American vocal music in the tradition of Motown Records and the likes of The Temptations, The Four Seasons, Smokey Robinson and Stevie Wonder, all the way through to its modern-day evolution.
Featuring a slate of vocalists with Broadway credits from shows like "Jersey Boys," "Hairspray," "Jesus Christ, Superstar," "Mama Mia," "Guys and Dolls," "Motown: The Musical" and more, this talented group paired with the sweeping strings and colorful winds of the orchestra will bring their nostalgic and heartfelt tunes to Omaha.
The Doo Wop Project begins at the beginning, tracing the evolution of Doo Wop from the classic sound of five guys singing tight harmonies on a street corner to the biggest hits on the radio today.
The Doo Wop Project brings unparalleled authenticity of sound and vocal excellence to recreate—and in some cases entirely reimagine—some of the greatest music in American pop and rock history.
In their epic shows, The Doo Wop Project takes audiences on a journey from foundational tunes of groups like the Crests, Belmonts and Flamingos through their influences on the sounds of Smokey Robinson, The Temptations and The Four Seasons and into DooWopified versions of modern musicians like Michael Jackson, Jason Mraz and Maroon 5.
