60's show this week

By Michael Butler

It was the decade of bouffant hair, the Beatles and the "Twist." The 1960s brought fads and great music. This week, the McCraney-Cottle Arts Council is taking you back with, "A Night of 60s" music at the Tallassee High School Auditorium.

The show will be on Friday, March 13 at 7 p.m.

"We're bringing back the Martini Shakers. They're a rockabilly group," MCAC director Jerry Cunningham said. "The Four Voicemen, a doowop group, will be there."

With the Friday the 13th show, expect to hear a special tune that applies.

"I found out that "Monster Mash" came out in 1962. How appropriate to do that on Friday the 13th. 'Whatever happened to my Transylvania Twist?'"

Tickets are $15 each for the final show of the MCAC season.

"It'll be an enjoyable evening. We're going to have a light show along with it."

Cunningham encourages purchasing tickets in advance by calling him at 334-312-2679. Tickets will also be available at the door.
