Back in 94, I was in a great show at The Burn Brae Dinner Theatre in Burtonsville MD, called “Jukebox USA”. The show was a review of Rock N Roll, Soul & Pop songs. One of the songs that I truly enjoyed singing was an a capella version of Gerry Goffin and Carole King’s “Up On The Roof” which was recorded by “The Drifters” in 1962. I love vocal harmonies, so I’ve always been a fan of groups like The Beatles, The Beach Boys and such. We had a good time with this show, and I (Jamie Zemarel) had the pleasure of performing this song with Jesse Foreman, Prince Havely and my buddy TW (Michael Carruthers).
For those of you asking, we’re not a group, we were doing a show at a dinner theater. As for what we’re doing now, Mike & I are members of the Musical Comedy Political Satire troupe, “The Capitol Steps”, and Prince and Jesse are still performing on their own in various shows.
Thanks to all for the kind comments. Enjoy!
