FRANKLIN — The musical group the Bel Airs will bring their rhythm and blues "doo wop" music to Franklin Opera House on Friday, August 23 at 7:30 pm.

Doo-wop music is a product of "city music" from the east and mid-west. It was originally sang a cappella on the street corners because the musicians didn’t have instruments. The genre took off from there, giving rise to stars such as The Del Vikings, the Five Satins, and the Drifters.

Now the Bel Airs bring their special brand of doo-wop to Franklin Opera House. Tickets for this reserved seat show are $19 for adults and $17 for seniors. For more information or to purchase tickets call 934-1901 or visit www.franklinoperahouse.org.
