What’s Happening AROUND TOWN Lake/Marion August 2017

Frankie Avalon August 7th, 2017 Show Time: 4:00pm and 7:00pm One of America’s most popular entertainers, Frankie Avalon went from 50’s teen idol to a national and international star. Born in Philadelphia, Frankie had his early trumpet playing career end abruptly when a family friend Bob Marcucci heard him sing and signed him to a recording contract. His first song ”De De Dinah” became a smash hit and his recording of “Venus” was one of the biggest selling hits of the era. He had many follow up hits such as “Bobbysocks to stockings,” “Gingerbread,” “Just Ask Your Heart,” and “A Boy Without A Girl.” He is also credited with having the last number one record of the 50’s with “Why” reaching that status in December 1959.
