HERE'S A CLIP OF DONNA AND THE RIP CHORDS PERFORMING THE BRIAN WILSON SONG,"MUSCLE BUSTLE" FROM  THE FILM,"MUSCLE BEACH PARTY" WHICH DONNA APPEARED IN !
BACK IN THE EARLY 60'S DONNA TOURED WITH THE RIP CHORDS AND OTHERS IN "DICK CLARK'S CARAVAN OF STARS" TOUR!! THIS WAS A GREAT REUNION! THANKS TO SKEETER AND LuCINDI FOR MAKING THIS POSSIBLE.

     Some recent past concert posters. 

From Kent Kotal of Forgotten Hits Website: Forgotten Hits Regular Frank B sent a review of the concert that he found posted on Ron Smith's oldiesmusic.com website:  
I was there. Excellent show. Several hundred people sitting. Many more standing. Many people clapping. Some dancing in the aisles here and there. The audience really seemed to be enjoying the show. Brucie wore his leopard jacket. To me the high point was definitely Ronnie Spector, who closed the show. She still has a great voice & looks fantastic. Also the Rip Chords sounded great doing "Hey Little Cobra" and a movie soundtrack song of theirs. Lesley Gore also did an excellent short set. The Crests singing the Righteous Brothers song "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" was also a highlight for me. Neil Sedaka was sick and didn't make the show. From what Bruce was saying, this is going to be an annual event. Couldn't beat the price: free with $9.00 admission to the fair & $4.00 parking.
