Going back to its origin, Doo Wop is one of the genres of rock & roll and R&B that flourished in the late '50s. The limited use of musical instruments and great vocal harmonies are the essence of doo-wop music.
It also combined easy to understand vocals and, simplistic words that appealed to the vast majority of Americans. Booming in the 1950's, the origins of Doo Wop seem to be rooted in urban African American society, however, not limited to this nationality.
Major cities such as Chicago, New York, Baltimore and Los Angeles all lay claim to the origins of the Doo-Wop sound. Doo wop artists were vocal groups, with each singer in the group taking a different part that interweaved with the other singers.
Frequently, the backing vocalists sang nonsense words as rhythm, and the genre's name derives from this trait. Most doo wop groups started as a cappella bands, performing without instrumental accompaniment. The hit doo wop singles inspired countless teenagers to form their own a cappella groups, though many of them were never recorded.
Despite its a cappella origins, few doo wop records were made without instrumental backing. The use of their voices in a cappella form could be rehearsed in any location, on a street corner, in a hallway, or wherever the groups could gather together.
These groups also had their professional beginnings in local community center talent shows, churches, school talent shows, and their neighborhood street corners. One of the chief proponent's of today's renewed interest in the acappella doo-wop sound is the five-piece vocal ensemble Stormy Weather from the Gary, Indiana area.
The group has recorded eight albums, including the highly touted seasonal record entitled Street Carols, which itself has become a holiday classic. Also, a cameo-recording on Rhino Records' sports music perennial, Baseball's Greatest Hits. Their children's series, Doo-Wop & Lollipops, has won numerous awards, including the Parent's Choice Gold Award and the Parent's Guide to Children's Media Award.
Stormy Weather celebrated their 25th anniversary, last year, delivering this dandy collection of cover hits spanning their career. Doo-Wop Yule Pop is third in the award-winning Doo-Wop & Lollipops series. It is an acappella unique, happy, finger-snapping holiday music aimed at children. Subtitled a Christmas collection for kids, Doo Wop Yule Pop is just plain fun at any age. The bands versions of Jingle Bells, A Yule Tide Aire, Rudolph The Rednosed Reindeer and so many more (15 in all), are musically solid and amazingly creative.
