Just older and wiser!
Well - how about some entertainment before our birthday tomorrow. We often say we need to update our image, we need to market to a new group of potential Rotarians and we need to think about our relevancy. Well just look at this. Same message - same group - just older and wiser!
Whose father was
the lead singer of the Diamonds circa 1957?
Who knew! And hasn’t he aged well. Tom
Hanks father - this is amazing!!!
This is so great. I didn't know Tom Hanks’ father was the lead
singer of the Diamonds.
THIS WILL PUT A SMILE ON YOUR FACE,
If you were alive in 1957, and old enough to enjoy Rock and Roll,
you will probably remember the group, "The Diamonds" who had just launched their super hit "Little Darlin' ".
For you that are too young to remember - it was a time when the performers were happy, enjoying themselves, respecting their fans,
dressed appropriately and their lyrics could be understood.
They did not feel obligated to scream, eat the microphone, mumble inaudible
lyrics or trash the set. In 1957, The Diamonds had a hit with "Little Darlin". 47
years later, they were requested to perform at Atlantic City ...
This link leads to both performances.
Watch the first one then scroll down for the new one 47 years
In the linked videos Tom Hank's father is the lead singer on the
left with the high-pitched voice. He still has it! Hope you enjoy.
