What: Bristol Borough will host music legends The Trammps, Jay Siegel’s Tokens and Gary Tosti on Saturday, September 15, 2012 at the 7th Annual Golden Oldies Concert in the Park.
Who: The highly-anticipated line-up includes:
- The Trammps: The band is from Philadelphia and launched their career with an upbeat version of “Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart” in 1972. Their musical contribution to the Saturday Night Fever movie soundtrack with the single “Disco Inferno” in 1977 was No. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1978 and is widely considered one of their most popular songs. This single was inducted into the Dance Music Hall of Fame in 2005.
- Jay Siegel’s Tokens are best known for the “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” which has become one of the most enduring songs of all times. First recorded more than 50 years ago, it has enjoyed a resurgence thanks to its prominence and popularity in Disney’s Broadway hit show, The Lion King. Siegel started his singing career back in high school with his classmate and close friend Neil Sedaka forming The Linc Tones. Although Seigel and Sedaka’s singing partnership lasted through high school graduation, both pursued independent and successful musical careers.
On a sad note, Gary & Sonny, Bristol Borough’s own renowned golden oldies troubadours, were booked to open the show. Sadly, Sonny Mosco, one-half of Gary & Sonny, succumbed earlier this month following a courageous multi-year battle of a series of health issues.
Where: The 7th Annual Concert in the Park is the municipal parking lot behind Mill Street.
When: The concert begins at 6:00 PM on Saturday, September 15, 2012. Everyone is encouraged to bring lawn chairs, blankets and sweaters to the concert.
Details: Vendors serving a variety of foods and beverages will be available for purchase during the concert. Bristol Borough also has many excellent restaurants serving Italian, Indian, Japanese Sushi & Steak and American cuisine all within walking distance of the riverfront.
