Coney Events: Doo Wop Legend To Grace Coney

Doo Wop singer Kenny Vance - who is known as a former member of Jay and the American, as well as the leader of The Planotones - will be gracing Coney Island with a 'Night of Dining, Dancing and Doo Wop' this Friday.

According to
The Brooklyn Daily Eagle, the event is a celebration of Vance's 50th anniversary of beginning to make Doo Wop music, after seeing the legendary Alan Freed's rock 'n' roll show at the Brooklyn Paramount.

In addition to his other musical accomplishments, Kenny deserves to be hailed as a Coney Island hero for his role as music supervisor for the film, The Warriors.
