A cappella/doo-wop group Harmony Street has performed for many local events, as well as on television and radio, according to a media release. The group is Jill Tannone, Doug Williams, Dick Vollkommer and Frank Lumia. “Their tight harmonies, and familiar songs will keep you entertained,” the release said.
“Through clever lyrics, infectious rhythm, old-school soul and an extraordinary sense of humor, Peculiar Gentlemen move through genres with effortless ease,” the release said. The five-piece band of “Sweet” Willie Jive, E-Beats, Cru Jones, EarthquEiko, Goose and Nailah has performed at New York City’s Knitting Factory, Mercury Lounge, Jalopy and Spike Hill. Its third record, “When I Fall,” is due out this spring.
Brother-and-sister duo Rick and Tara Eberle perform as Iridesense, along with Rob Viccari, and Rich Drouin. The group’s catchy pop songs have appeared in several indie films and on Nickleodeon television. The group has three full-length albums and has been performing since 1993.
