and the Vogues

will perform their hits at 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. April 11. Tickets cost $25.

Sonny Geraci, of Cleveland, recorded as the lead vocalist for The Outsiders with Capitol Records. Geraci produced four Top 40 hits with The Outsiders, and his best hits include “Time Won’t Let Me,” “Respectable (What Kind of Girl is This),” “Girl in Love” and “Help Me Girl.” His biggest hit song was “Precious and Few.”

Geraci became the lead vocalist of his group, Climax, which recorded hits Geraci performs live, including “Rock and Roll Heaven” and “Bend Me, Shape Me.” Geraci also performs a tribute live with a “Rock and Roll Heaven” medley, featuring Elvis, Bobby Darin, Buddy Holly, the Beatles, Ritchie Valens and Jim Morrison.

In the late 60s, Dennis Tufano, of The Buckinghams, produced five Top 10 hits, including “Kind of a Drag,” “Don’t You Care,” “Mercy, Mercy, Mercy,” “Hey Baby (They’re Playing Our Song),” “Susan” and “Back In Love Again.”

The Vogues, featuring lead singers Bill Burkette and Hugh Geyer, were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2001. Their first hit, “You’re the One,” was released 40 years ago, but remains at the top of vocal groups from the oldies.

This headlining show is put on by the Kent Stage to generate revenue to continue the free concerts offered to citizens of Streetsboro and city residents.

Catch a seat for one of the shows of “Back to the 60’s” April 11. For $25, ticket holders can be thrown into the 60s with performances by Geraci, Tufano and the Vogues.
