“Who’s Bad: The Ultimate Michael Jackson Tribute Band” Grove Theatre, Shippensburg, PA; 8:00 P.M.; Tickets: $29, $25 & $20; https://www.luhrscenterboxoffice.com/ordertickets.asp?p=456&src=eventperformances

Who’s Bad’s live performance is an unrivaled celebration of pop music’s one true King. Their power-packed performance of Michael Jackson’s expansive catalog has ignited crowds on every continent and can only be described as a jaw-dropping, musical must-see. As the longest-running Michael Jackson tribute band, and the only one to predate his untimely passing, Who’s Bad has awed even the skeptics. Who’s Bad has earned its name by paying studious attention to Michael Jackson’s every original groove and gravity-defying dance move, boasting over 100 years of professional experience and a team of dancers with resumes that include Broadway productions such as Phantom of the Opera. The velvety vocals and pinpoint choreography of front men Joseph Bell and Taalib York’s combined with the six-piece band’s synchronized dance routines, blaring horns and down-deep rhythms, results in a performance delivered with soul and precision superseded by no one but the King himself.

Whether you idolized the Jackson 5, fell in love to “Human Nature,” or learned to moonwalk to “Billie Jean,” Who’s Bad is THE ULTIMATE music-and-dance driven Michael Jackson homage. http://www.whosbadmusic.com/

From Bop to Pop…evolution of a sound! The DOO WOP PROJECT is street corner singing for a whole new generation.  Their show begins at the beginning, tracing the evolution of Doo Wop from the classic sound of five guys singing tight harmonies on a street corner to the biggest hits on the radio today. Throughout the show, DWP takes you on a journey from foundational tunes of groups like the Crests, Belmonts and Flamingos through their influences on the sounds of Smokey Robinson, the Temptations, and the Four Seasons…all the way to Michael Jackson, Jason Mraz and Amy Winehouse. Featuring current and former stars of Broadway’s smash hits Jersey Boys and Motown: The Musical, and their hot band, The Doo Wop Project brings unparalleled authenticity of sound and vocal excellence to recreate — and in some cases entirely reimagine — some of the greatest music in American pop and rock history. The level of talent, artistry and ability to entertain is off the charts with this show. It’s an evening of pure energy and magic, where you’ll be lifted from your seat with excitement by the power and charisma of these gifted young performers.  http://www.thedoowopproject.com/
