SARASOTA, FL (WWSB) - In the 1950's and the 1960's, a new kind of music called "Doo-Wop" swept the country.

Groups like The Drifters and The Platters hit the top of the charts with songs like "Blue Moon", "16 Candles" and "Save the Last Dance".

At Florida Studio Theatre their new Cabaret show "Unchained Melodies" brings those songs alive again, and inspires a new generation to fall in love with the music.

Nick Anastasia, a cast member in "Unchained Melodies" told Suncoast View about how those early groups. He says they sang tight harmony, which is more upfront, more totally together than regular harmony , which is often sung in the background.

"Unchained Melodies" cast members Nathaniel Claridad, David Marmanillo & Micah Jeremiah Mims sing "Little Darlin" and "Under the Board Walk" live on Suncoast View. The show is at Florida Studio Theatre through February 3rd.
