This year, you’ll enjoy the hot sounds of the Cornell Coley Afro-Latin Jazz Trio. Born in Kingston, Jamaica of Cuban and Jamaican parents, Cornell Coley, M. Ed. is an arts educator, dancer and musician. He has played extensively throughout the country. Mr. Coley wrote, produced, and performs in his own show; “A Fascinating Rhythm,” performing in over 400 libraries, schools and festivals. In this highly popular program, he weaves together cultural information, artistic virtuosity and charisma to motivate all ages. They join him on stage in an African journey from East to West and throughout the Caribbean, Brazil and the Americas. Be sure to join HIM at Doyle’s…and bring your dancing shoes!
And once again, we have the honor of Skippy White, as our guest MC! Skippy White grew up in Waltham, Massachusetts. He fell in love with the doo-wop sound when he was young. He started working in Boston in 1960 as a DJ at WILD-AM. White then rented a storefront for $50 and opened his own record store. White stayed at WILD for eight years before moving on to a series of other stations. He currently hosts a show on Touch 106.1 and continues to sell records and CDs online and at his store in Egleston. Last year, Skippy celebrated 50 years of business! Come see this living legend and test out his motto: If you can hum it, he can find it!
