If you’re ready for a great evening of entertainment, join us Saturday night, August 13th when country music and doo wop come together at the Palestine Civic Center. The Jamboree will present “Pure Country”. The show in August will feature “4-Ever Young” from Dallas. Through their wide repertoire of songs, they tailor the music for their group and interact with the audience to create a true Blast From The Past. They have great harmony and a broad vocal range. Top quality presentation and showmanship. “4 Ever Young” is an exciting a cappella group from the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex which specializes in 50's and 60's style Rock-n-Roll music. They pay tribute to those fabulous doo-wop vocal groups from that era with the sweetest four-part close harmony this side of the Brooklyn Bridge. The group's repertoire consists mostly of Rock-n-Roll classics, all arranged by the group in its own unique style. The audience will enjoy songs like "In the Still of the Night," "Charlie Brown," "Blue Moon," "Goodnight Sweetheart," "409," “The lion Sleeps Tonight”, “ “Who Put The Bomp”, “The Monster Mash” in the true spirit of those street corner groups from the early days of rock-n-roll in the 50s and 60s. “This quartet of instrumentalists and singers from Dallas will charm the audience with their ability to entertain those present, from the youngest to the oldest. They have performed all over the country and we are fortunate to have them here in Palestine for this one night performance.” said Dan Manuel producer of the Jamboree.
