The Alley Cats, recognized as America’s premier doo wop group, will be performing Friday, August 17, at The Coffee Gallery Backstage in Altadena, starting at 8 p.m.
The Alley Cats have crooned their a cappella tunes all over the world since 1987 and are thrilled to be performing at The Coffee Gallery Backstage for their encore performance.
Specializing in hits of the 1950s and 60s, the quartet is known for their tight harmonies, but their laugh-out-loud, unruly humor keeps audiences coming back.
These musical c0mics have been Jay Leno’s opening act for the past seven years, and have opened as well for Jerry Seinfeld and Joan Rivers. They have also appeared on numerous television shows for NBC, CBS, and PBS.
The Alley Cats have performed in concert all over the world alongside iconic groups such as The Coasters, The Drifters, and The Beach Boys. Most notably, they were featured with Jay Black as The Americans on the television special “Pop, Rock and Doo-Wop.”
Proudly, The Alley Cats have had the special honor of entertaining US military troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, and have had the great privilege of being invited by The President of The United States to perform at The White House.
In early May, The Alley Cats won first place in the Moscow International A Cappella Festival, where they performed alongside more than 180 other a cappella groups.
Tickets for Friday’s performance are $20. For more information, call (626) 798-6236 or visit www.coffeegallery.com.
The Coffee Gallery Backstage is at 2029 N. Lake Avenue in Altadena.
