Woman’s Club Welcomes Marcels For Salute to the Greatest Jukebox Giants

The Woman’s Club of Wheeling will meet at Monument Place, Wheeling, at noon Friday, April 11.

It will be the club’s inaugural luncheon. New officers and club chairmen will be installed for the 2014-16 administration. Current club president, Lexie Hanket, will preside.

Immediately after the luncheon and installation, the club members will be entertained by the Marcels. They will present a “Salute to the Greatest Jukebox Giants of All Time.”

Featuring Julius Hopson, Ritchie Merritt, Richard Harris and Ted Smith, the Marcels are the singers who put the “Bomp” in the “Bomp-A-Bomp” when their first recording, “Blue Moon,” sold more than two and a half million copies.

They will salute groups and singers of the past and recreate the mood and music of the rock and roll years. Great music that evokes special memories will be the focus of their program.
