The Doo Wop Project

FEB 19, 2022 / 7:30 PM

What would Maroon 5 sound like if they had lived in the Doo Wop era? The Doo Wop Project (DWP) traces the evolution of Doo Wop from the classic sound of five guys singing tight harmonies on a street corner to the biggest hits on the radio today in this MATRIX:MIDLAND presentation. DWP takes you on a journey from foundational tunes of groups like The Crests, The Belmonts and The Flamingos through the sounds of Smokey Robinson, The Temptations and The Four Seasons all the way to “DooWopified” versions of modern musicians like Michael Jackson, Jason Mraz and Maroon 5. The Doo Wop Project brings unparalleled authenticity of sound and vocal excellence to recreate—and in some cases entirely reimagine—some of the greatest music in American pop and rock. A fascinating, fun-filled trip you do not want to miss!
