The Girl Singers of the Hit Parade

Monday, October 25, 2010

The Girl Singers of the Hit Parade will be in Holstein at the Rosemary

Clausen Center for Performing Arts on Nov. 6 for an evening performance and Nov. 7 for an afternoon matinee.

Remember Rosemary Clooney singing "Hey There," Patti Page's "Mockingbird Hill," Connie Francis belting out "Lipstick On Your Collar," Doris Day's rendition of "Sentimental Journey," or Peggy Lee's inimitable performance of "Fever?"

If you do, you're going to love this show. Listening to this group will be like sitting down in front of the TV on a Saturday night back in the days when there were only two stations and the folks let their kids stay up past eight to watch "Your Hit Parade." Makes a person smile.

The Girl Singers will bring back memories you thought you'd forgot and have you singing along with them under your breath.

Colleen Raye is the creator of The Girl Singers' show. As initially conceived, it was a solo act for herself and the band but it was subsequently transformed into a group effort. Sharing the stage with her now are her daughters Sophia and Jennifer Grimm, as well as her sister, Debbie O'Keefe. Son Reed is part of the band. It's a real family act.

Colleen loves the music from that era. "There were so many great singers and so many memorable, well-loved songs," she said. "I felt people would be interested in a show like that."

She was right. The show is a hit and we're lucky to have it coming to our local venue. The ladies and their band will make even the youngest attendees understand why these songs have become standards.
