A simple song can transport anyone back in time.  The lyrical and electric sounds of rock, rhythm and doo wop do this better than almost any other genre. TJL Productions presents a musical event that’s as close to time travel as television allows, featuring a historical reunion of music icons Little Richard, Frankie Valli, Little Anthony & The Imperials, Fred Parris & The Five Satins, Lou Christie and Lenny Welch. Taped at the Benedum Center in Pittsburgh and hosted by Frankie Valli, Jerry Butler and Lloyd Price, the concert features a surprise appearance by Little Richard, who burns up the stage with an exhilarating performance of “Keep A-Knockin.’”

Fred Parris comes out of retirement after a decade to join the Five Satins in a performance of “In the Still of the Night,” the number one oldies single of all time. Hal Miller joins the Rays after 40 years of retirement to sing “Silhouettes,” and Kathy Young is reunited with the Innocents to sing “A Thousand Stars” for the first time since they recorded the hit when Young was just 14 years old.

Ed Townsend, who wrote and produced Marvin Gaye’s R&B classic “Let’s Get It On,” performs his 1958 hit “For Your Love,” and hometown Pittsburgh boy Lou Christie displays his classic trademark falsetto in “Lightning Strikes.” The line-up also includes superstars Little Anthony & The Imperials singing their hits “Tears on My Pillow,” “Going Out of My Head,” “Hurt So Bad” and “Shimmy Shimmy Ko Ko Bop.” In a touching return to the stage after battling throat cancer, Larry Chance reunites with the Earls to sing “Remember Then.”
