September is doo-wop month for local Democrats, GOPby George Bennett | September 2nd, 2009
The county Democratic Party is hosting a doo-wop themed dinner-’n'-dance fundraiser on Sept. 12 at Ellie’s ’50s Diner in Delray Beach. A $65 advance ticket (or $70 at the door) buys an evening of entertainment headlined by Vinnie Cagno & the Doo Wop Kid, along with a deejay.
Eleven days later, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and Boca Raton resident Dion DiMucci will sing at a Boca Raton Republican Club meeting featuring congressional candidate Allen West. DiMucci began as frontman for the doo-wopping Dion and the Belmonts and survived Buddy Holly’s ill-fated 1959 Winter Dance Party tour before conquering other genres. Tickets for the GOP event are $30 with dinner included or $5 to hear Dion and West without a meal.
