News Release for the Week of October 3, 2016

The Corvettes Doo Wop Revue returns to the Enfield Senior Center on Friday, October 28 at 6 p.m. Always a Senior Center favorite, The Corvettes play hits like Little Darlin’, Rock Around the Clock, and Shake, Rattle and Roll. Tickets are $7 per person and includes dessert and coffee at intermission. I expect that this show will be a sellout, but there are plenty of tickets available right now. It is probably a good idea to get your tickets soon so you will not be disappointed.
