Dick Fox’s Golden Boys starring Frankie Avalon, Fabian, and Lou Christie

We’re terribly saddened by the passing of a wonderful friend, family man, and performer – Bobby Rydell.
A genuine class act, on stage and off, and a true fan and supporter of the music, Bobby could be found in the audience here, as often as in front of it.
His presence will be missed so very much.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Linda, his entire family, and his enormous band of friends and fans.

 

Frankie Avalon went from 50’s teen idol to national and international star. This talented performer, who broke into show business as a child prodigy trumpet player, can look back on a career that spans three generations of music, television, and motion pictures. One of his first songs “De De Dinah” became a Top Ten hit and his recording of “Venus” was one of the biggest selling hits of the era, becoming Avalon’s first #1 tune. His follow-up hits include “Bobbysocks to Stockings,” “Just Ask Your Heart,” and “A Boy Without a Girl.”

With a series of performances on Dick Clark’s American Bandstand, Fabian became one of the top teen idols of the late 1950s, and one of the first pop artists to be known by just one name. An overnight singing sensation, film star with over 30 films to his credit, and producer of his own concert series, Fabian continues to expand his ever-growing career. He has enjoyed great success with the hits “Turn Me Loose,” “Hound Dog Man,” and the million-selling “Tiger” single.

Lou Christie’s chart topping, multi-million selling career as a songwriter, recording artist, and performer started in his hometown near Pittsburgh. His first million selling song, “The Gypsy Cried,” transformed Lou into a national teen idol. Over the decade of the 1960s Lou followed success with greater success with hits like “Two Faces Have I,” “Lightning Strikes,” “Rhapsody in the Rain,” and “I’m Gonna Make You Mine,” all of which featured his stratospheric falsetto.
