They’re having a party and you’re invited. The Fabulons, Florida’s favorite party band, will bring the music of Motown, Doo-Wop, classic rock, Disco, R & B, the best of the girl groups and more to the stage with a six-piece band and no tracks or tricks. All six members sing as well as play and that creates the band’s strong harmonies. Few vocal groups also play their instruments and most have tracks or back-up bands but The Fabulons do it all!
The Fabulons have opened for the Temptations, Dion, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, the Rascals, Roy Orbison, the Turtles, the Duprees, Martha and the Vandellas and a who’s who of classic artists and groups. They were featured in the 2006 movie, The Boynton Beach Club, which had five songs recorded and performed by The Fabulons.
The band was put together in 1985 to be the house band for a club in Plantation, Florida, called the Brickyard West. For several years they played in clubs and then the festival circuit. Three of them: drummer and vocalist Richie Benjamin, lead male vocalist Shelly Brill and sax player and vocalist Arnie Barry have known each other since the beginning. The guitarist, Mitch Weiner, joined in 1987. Only bass player and vocalist Jim Buttaccio and keyboardist and lead vocalist Lu White are relative newcomers, joining the band five years ago.
For Richie Benjamin, the music they play is the music they know and love. “The music we play is mostly the music we grew up with,” he said. “That’s the common theme from us to the audience. We have a little different approach musically when we play a dance as opposed to a concert or show, but the bottom line is that it is our job to entertain the audience, do requests when we can and give them a good time.”
The best music and a hot summer night. Bring that special person and enjoy.
