Join THE RIFF TIDESplaying music from the 40's, 50's and 60's
at Kelly’s for a Valentines Day Party Sunday February 12th
The Riff Tides perform 1950s Rock and Roll music including such classics as Blueberry Hill, Diana and Rock Around the Clock.
Gail Sonnesso, Director at Gem Day Services, formed the band in Spring 2015. "I'm a baby boomer and wanted to remember the happy times of the fifties and sixties and there were no fifties bands on the Outer Banks," she says.
She enlisted the help of her husband, Angelo Sonnesso who plays keyboards and sings vocals.
They added Andrew Darling who plays bass, Ken Daidone on the drums and Robert Jacobs on the accordion.
Dana Walker, David Morris and Kent Zimmerman sing vocals. Kent also emcees for the group. Doug Leal is the sound manager.
"It has been the most fun!" says Dana Walker about performing with the group when she's not working as a hospitalist at Outer Banks Hospital or singing with the Outer Banks Chorus or her church choir at Kitty Hawk United Methodist Church. "This is happy music – that when it's playing, it's impossible to sit or stand still! It makes you want to dance and sing along."
Come out and have some fun.
Tickets cost $10.
