Details of Doo Wop and the Ticket Luck value
Doo Wop is a term applied to the celebrated style of vocal-oriented blues and rhythm music that began developing in the forties among African-American people, and gained strong popularity momentum in the fifties and early sixties. The style evolved in culturally dominant regions of America including Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Newark, Baltimore, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia and New York. Centered on vocal harmony, the genre has been one of the most pop-based, mainstream R&B styles of its time. It is a kind of vocal group harmony the musical characteristics of which incorporate elements of various vocal parts, such as a simple beat, nonsense syllables, little to no instrumentation with very simple lyrics.
The genre is really an ensemble singing comprising of single artists with their own backing group. Sometimes an individual artist in the musical arrangement may take over the most prominent placement such that the idea of doo wop performance being an ensemble singing leans more towards a single musician leading the group. Typical instruments used in such performances include pianos, drums, saxophones, electric guitars and double bass. Due to resurgence in the genre’s popularity, Doo Wop tickets have been in demand among those who once enjoyed the tunes in the sixties as well as those who enjoy its characteristic elements that are so close to being in the vicinity of R&B sound.
Doo Wop began with bands African-American vocal bands like The Mills Brothers and The Ink Spot, both of which were from Cincinnati and made record hits at the time of the Second World War which provided crucial precedents to the genre. Ink Spots released a series of record successes in the United Stated and in Britain including songs likes Whispering Grass, My Prayer and BlessYou, while The Mills Brothers came up something similar after four years with hits like Paper Doll and TillThen. These tunes were mainly slow with reference to swing time and were characterized by simple instrumentation with four-part harmonies similar to the barbershop quartet that The Mills Brothers had once been. The lyrical content was generally about relationships and love. Early Doo Wop groups were musically more diverse and played jump blues and blues.
With time Doo Wop singers got together in subways and on street corners mostly numbering three to six. With the coming of late forties and early fifties, people saw the so-labeled ‘bird group’ like The Swallows, The Penguins, The Orioles, The Larks, The Flamingoes and The Crows. Many of these bands were also named after cars such as The Fleetwoods, Little Anthony & Imperials, The Edsels, The Impalas and The Cadillacs. The Orioles contributed significantly in developing the Doo Wop further by creating hits like Crying in the Chapel, and It’s Too Soon To Know. At this point the genre began scoring R&B charts with Billy Ward & His Dominoes’ Sixty Minute Man, The Mello-Moods’ Where Are You, The Five Keys’ The Glory of Love, The Cardinals’ Shouldn’t I Know, Four Buddies’ I Will Wait and The Shadows’ Will You Be Mine. Into the sixties, the genre peaked in popularity with hits like BlueMoon by The Marcels, and several records with nonsense-syllables were made by Vito & the Salutations and The Rivingtons. Other important bands include The Platters, The Midnighters, The Drifters and The Coasters who assisted in connecting the doo-wop sound with that of mainstream music through which it was further connected with the future style of soul music.
Doo Wop has experienced revivals in the seventies, eighties and the nineties, with is most important artists centered in the urban areas of NYC, Newark, Philadelphia and Los Angeles, among other places. Band have made remakes of original doo wop songs while acts from later periods have been influenced by them such as Led Zeppelin’s hit D’yer Mak’er, David Bowie’s Drive-In Saturday, and Billy Joel’s TheLongest Time.
