Doo Wop & Magic At The Cultural Center: Aventura Has A Great Line Up In Store The Month

March 14, 2024

The City of Aventura Presents The Doo Wop Project featuring the Broadway stars of Jersey Boys, Motown: The Musical and other blockbusters on Thursday, March 21st at 8:00 p.m. Bringing unparalleled authenticity of sound and vocal excellence, the cast recreates — and in some cases entirely reimagines — the greatest music in American Pop and Rock History.

The Doo Wop Project traces the evolution of Doo Wop from the classic sound of five guys singing harmonies on a street corner to the biggest hits on the radio today. The set list includes the foundational tunes from the Crests, Belmonts and Flamingos through the vocal artistry of Smokey Robinson, The Temptations and The Four Seasons all the way to “DooWopified” versions of modern hits from Michael Jackson, Jason Mraz, Maroon 5 and Sam Smith.

In a review of a performance, Maryland Theatre Guide reported, “The focus is to keep this amazing music with its glorious harmonies alive. The group covers Doo Wop’s heyday but also experiments with incorporating that style of music into contemporary numbers to reach a younger audience – they “Doo wop-ify” the songs. And it succeeds brilliantly.”

The Doo Wop Project’s one hour PBS special, produced by Detroit Public Television, debuted in June of 2022 and such a hit with fans it aired on a whopping 88% of all PBS stations nationwide.

Bill Blagg Live:
By popular demand, The City of Aventura brings back The Magic of Bill Blagg Live! for two performances on Saturday, March 16th at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.

Hailed by the Chicago Tribune as “absolutely incredible,” Blagg makes objects float in mid-air and vanish in the blink of an eye all with trademark off-the-cuff personality. With interactive magic and jaw-dropping illusions, Blagg will once again have audiences rubbing their eyes in disbelief.

After receiving his first professional magic book from his great-grandfather, Blagg started building magic props with his father. Today, he is one of the nation's top touring illusionists priding himself in performing new, never-before-seen illusions such as the world's only rideable hoverboard. Other amazing illusions include teleporting across theaters, squishing his body from 6 feet to 6 inches tall and passing through the blades of an industrial fan.
