VITERBO PRESENTS CANADIAN CHART TOPPERS, THE NYLONS, MARCH 22
LA CROSSE, Wis.-The Canadian quartet, The Nylons, will present their unique style and high energy in a performance at Viterbo University Saturday, March 22.
With rave reviews from around the globe, The Nylons are hitting the stage with a fresh sound and new, original material. Tenors Claude Morrison and Garth Mosbaugh, bass Arnold Robinson, and baritone Mark Cassius will knock your socks off with dazzling renditions of old favorites like "The Lion Sleeps Tonight," as well as an a cappella interpretation of music by artists Hall and Oates, The Beatles, and George Michael. The Nylons have moved doo-wop from street corners and put it on stage with high energy and an a cappella sound that has allowed them to redefine a genre.
This a cappella style doo-wop group formed in 1979 and is one of the most popular quartets to come out of Canada. The Nylons have sold more than two million records and gone to the top of the charts. The group’s first album, The Nylons, went gold in Canada in just two months and, over the next seven years, The Nylons went on to record six albums for Attic Records.
The Nylons are sponsored by Classic Hits 94.7 and supported, in part, by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the state of Wisconsin.
Show time is Saturday, March 22 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are$24/18. For information, contact the Viterbo University Box Office at 608-796-3100.
