Statehood Ball to feature doo-wopin' with the Diamonds

Posted: Sunday, December 14, 2008

JUNEAU - It will be a trip down memory lane for kids of all ages at the Juneau Statehood Ball at 8 p.m. Jan. 3 at Centennial Hall. To celebrate the 50th year of Alaska Statehood, Capital City Celebrations will present The Diamonds, performing their timeless doo-wop hits - "Why Do Fools Fall in Love?", "Silhouettes," "The Stroll", "Little Darlin'", etc. - from the '50s and '60s. In addition, the Diamonds will pay tribute to the classic four-part harmony vocal groups of the era and the great solo artists of the time.

Paying tribute to 50 years of Juneau's remarkable growth and progress as the Capital of the great State of Alaska, a volunteer committee, with the aid of local organizations and merchants, is preparing for an entertainment-filled evening at Centennial Hall. The musical evening will include statehood displays, prizes, silent auction, dancing, hors d'oeuvres and cash bar.

Get out that party dress (or 1959 prom dress and penny loafers) and your dancing shoes for an evening you and your friends will not forget for a long time! Tickets for the Statehood Ball are $50 and available at Hearthside Books or contact
