Daryl Hall & John Oates at Giant Center 13 Apr 2015, 7:00 am

 

 

DARYL HALL & JOHN OATES

GIANT CENTER

HERSHEY, PA

 

 

We all know and love them as Hall & Oates. Ironically, the duo has never liked nor used that moniker.. “From the very beginning. People never note that. The idea of ‘Hall and Oates’, this two-headed monster, this thing, is not anything we’ve ever wanted or liked.”

Both Daryl and John hail from right here in the Keystone State, achieving their greatest fame from the late 70’s to the mid-80’s. Both also play a wide range of instruments with Daryl taking the part of lead vocalist, while John provides back up. Notable hits include Rich Girl, Kiss On My List, Private Eyes, Maneater, I Can’t Go For That, Out Of Touch and Sara Smile…all Billboard Hot 100 number 1 songs on the charts.

In April of 2003, the pair was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame..last year they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Well-deserved honors, both.

Look for their latest release… Their first box set, Do What You Want, Be What You Are: The Music of Daryl Hall & John Oates. The four CD set contains a total of 74 tracks.

VOLKSFEST 2015

MOUNT HOPE ESTATE

MANHEIM, PA

Who knew? In May 1937, the government of Germany (then under the control of Adolf Hitler) formed a new state owned auto company.  Known as Gesellschaft zur Vorbereitung des Deutschen Volkswagens mbH,  It was renamed  a more manageable Volkswagenwerk, or “The People’s Car Company.”

And who knew that the Volkswagen would not only survive but become one of the most popular cars worldwide. Known as a rite of passage for the young, it also remains popular with those waxing nostalgic for that rite…

Volksfest brings together collectors, vendors and those with an appreciation for all things VW. Enjoy static displays, view the best of air and water cooled Volkswagens..awards will be presented for the best in those categories, as well as for best of show overall and worst of show overall.

Food will be available from the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire Kitchens along with fresh Swashbuckler Ales.

Date: Saturday, April 25, 2015

Time: 8:00 AM for Spectators

Admission: $1.00 per carload for Spectators, $5.00 per car for Show Field (includes driver and passengers)
