The Eastern Shore Madrigal Singers think that an important question to ponder is “WHO PUT THE BOMP IN THE BOMP BA BOMP BA BOMP?” or even more important, “WHO PUT THE RAM IN THE RAM-A-LAM-A-DING DONG?” These questions, as well as other significant ones, come up in the Madrigal Singers’ upcoming show, “Feeling Groovy: A 60’s Revue,” to be presented on Sunday, April 28, at 3:00 PM, at the Palace Theatre in Cape Charles. The Singers did this show in Franktown and Chincoteague back in November, and it was such a tremendous success that they decided to bring it to Cape Charles.
Who can forget the decade when we tuned in to hear the Beatles, the Beach Boys, Simon and Garfunkel, and other incredible artists? Songs from the Madrigal Singers’ show include “Spinning Wheel,” “The Loco-Motion,” “Under the Boardwalk,” “Cherish,” “Yesterday,” and “Dancing in the Street” with “Aquarius.”
The Madrigal men present “Soul and Inspiration” featuring tenor soloist David Jones, “Calendar Girl” featuring bass soloist Ed Satterfield, and “Walk Like a Man.” The Madrigal ladies will do “Please, Mr. Postman” featuring soloist Sara Reedy and “Chain of Fools” with soprano soloist Beth Sharpley. Bekki Haynie will bring us the Nancy Sinatra hit “These Boots Are Made for Walking,” and Patsy Goard will remind us about “The Harper Valley PTA.” Beth Sharpley and Johnny Morrison sing “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”
Admission ($15 for adults and students over the age of 12 and $10 for students 12 and under) will be collected at the door. Show time on April 28 at 3:00 PM at the Palace Theatre!
Other specials include “Leader of the Pack” with soloist Christy Kellam, “It’s My Party” with soloist Sara Reedy, the Roger Miller hit “Trailer for Sale or Rent” by soloist Ben Askew. Allen Hamilton will “Tiptoe Through the Tulips,” and Beth Sharpley and David Jones will sing the beautiful ballad “Let It Be Me.” Marty Killmon, Patsy Goard, and Beth Sharpley will sing “Will You Still Love Me?,” and some of the Madrigal men will do “Along Came Jones.” Beth Sharpley and some of the Madrigal ladies will pay a special tribute to the late Aretha Franklin with “Queen of Soul,” a medley of some of her best songs.
