Calling All Rodders,
With the temperature dipping to a balmy 9 degrees here in Eastern PA, we needed a break from the snow!
We would like to thank George and Mary Ann Nopia for the invitation to come to the American Legion in Wesleyville, PA to hear The Contels.
You may remember The Contels from their recording (a 45 record) "Hey You", recorded back in 1957. After talking with the band they played the original song for the crowd. Along with many other familiar Doo Woop sounds. (And a special Happy Birthday to Me!)Thanks guys!
Band members, Gene Vito, Lead Singer and George Nopia,First Tenor, these two gentlemen from the original Contels, James Monda,on the Drums, Geoffrey Wands, plays Sax/Flute, Alex Alexander, is the Lead Guitarist, and John Guaras, on the Keyboard.
We had a very good time, going down memory lane with them. If you are planning your car event for the upcoming season and think you may want to add some great sounding tunes to your show, watch for their upcoming schedule and check them out.
