The Precisions perform at Riverhead Townscape

August 19, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

The Precisions will perform at the stage in Grangebel Park as part of a series of “Riverhead Townscape” Friday night concerts throughout the course of the summer.

Like other popular vocal groups from the 1950’s and 1960’s such as Little Anthony & the Imperials, the Mystics, the Passions and the Tokens, the Precisions went from performing as young urban balladeers from the colorful street corners of Brooklyn to a contract with a major record label.  In 1962, the Precisions hit the national record charts with their haunting arrangement of the George and Ira Gershwin composition, Someone To Watch Over Me (Golden Crest Records.)  The group soon followed with another Golden Crest release, Cleopatra, a catchy novelty song about the exotic “Queen of the Nile,” inspired by the 1963 motion picture starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.
