Comments on the NE Doo Wop Society's 10th Anniversary Show at The Cedars Banquet Hall

Another GREAT night of Great music from the New England Doo Wop Society Show. Wow, thanks guys for keeping the music alive and bringing us such great talent like Mike D'Amore! He is amazing!"  (Nancy Jane - Worcester, MA)

Gary and Bob, hats off to both of you and your incredible staff. I want to commend you on the great shows you have presented over the past 10 years! Last nights 10th Anniversary show was absolutely fabulous! It's hard for me to say which of the four groups was my favorite because they all shined with their stellar performances! The Whiptones -tremendous, The YesterDaze - tremendous, The Tribunes - tremendous, The Willows - tremendous and Tony Middleton's solo performance of "What A Wonderful World" absolutely incredible! Words can't express the hospitality of both of you and your staff that was extended to my wife and I after the show. We really felt like part of the NEDWS family and we had the greatest time ever! Wishing the NEDWS another 10 great years and many more after that! Hoping to see you at the car show and again on June 13th. (Ron DePoto - New Haven, CT)

 "A big shoutout to Bob Robert Belniak and Gary Jones of the New England Doo Wop Society for another great show on Friday night. The young The Whiptones had the joint rocking' at both the show and post show get together. Yesterdaze was sensational as always as were the Tribunes led by my "brother" from a different mother Mike Cuomo. The great Tony Middleton and the Willows closed the 10th Anniversary show. Thanks again guys for letting me be a part of the fun. .......And a great job by Mike Michael D'Amore who did his solo act on Saturday night in Agawam. This young man is one great talent. He's doing a lot of work in Florida so check his websitehttp://www.michaeldamore.com

A weekend cannot get any better than that. "  (Glen Fisher - Atlantic Beach, FL).


A big shout out to two great guys who did a terrific job putting this show together. The Willows were honored to be a part of this 10th year celebration. Thanks again, Bobby & Gary." (Bill Pron - Bass of the Willows)



Two guys in white sports coats with pink carnations, pulled off another absolutely " incredible" 10th Anniversary evening of some of the best musical groups around.  What a party!!!  Loved, loved, loved the Whiptones, and Yesterdaze, with Michael D'Amore taking the house down!  The Tribunes were great, as usual, and it was a treat to hear the Willows.  Words cannot really describe what a fun evening this was, so I will just say, as always, many special thanks to you and Bob and the entire crew of the New England Doo Wop Society!  (Nancy & Curtis Blau  -  Newington, CT)
Dear Bob & Gary,
Thank you so much for including Tony Middleton & the Willows in your amazing 10th Anniversary show.  What a beautiful show & entertainment you put on Friday night to a thrilled & appreciative audience. We loved the intros, the band & all the detail on the stage. Thank you & your team for the all the accommodations, all the work & promotion that goes into making the show such a success & the groups comfortable.
Many thanks.....sooooooo memorable.   Love,Tony Middleton (Willows)
Hey Bob! The YesterDaze and I can't thank you enough for yet ANOTHER fabulous NEDWS concert! You guys know how to do it right. We appreciated the clean and comfortable rooms. We enjoyed a wonderful free breakfast together at our hotel with all the groups the next morning. The pizza after party was great - that pizza was delicious. Pete forgot to leave a tip for our wonderful waitress. We hope you will give her something for us and we will pay you back at Lead East! I was so happy my family friend Cynthia and her husband came - they had never seen the YesterDaze or a doo wop show and they had a wonderful time. THANK YOU SOOOoooo much! WE love you guys!

 We operate on an extremely small and tight budget with a small staff that host over 4 events a year. These  events bring close to 2000 people into the Springfield business community. But we can't continue to do this without your support. Ticket office revenues cover only a portion of our operating budget.  Advertising and fundraising allows us to bridge the gap between ticket sales and operating expenses. Without individual donor support we could not keep the curtain up! So, any help from ANY business or individual is MORE than welcome! We will spotlight your business if you would like us too.

Thank you....and let's keep the music (and the shows) alive!
