Walsh, the Mayor’s Office of Tourism, Sports, and Entertainment, the Boston Commission on Affairs of the Elderly, and the Boston Parks and Recreation Department in partnership with title sponsor Bank of America.

Charlie Thomas is a Dorothy Curran Concert Series favorite who earned his place in music history as a member of the Drifters, the group that placed 37 records on the Billboard national R&B charts. Twenty-five Drifters songs reached the Top 10, with five of those making it to #1. Thomas carries on the group’s legacy by performing such Drifters classics as “Dance With Me,” “This Magic Moment,” “Some Kind of Wonderful,” “Under The Boardwalk,” and more.
The Dorothy Curran Wednesday Night Concert Series closes August 22 with the Trammps performing hits including “Hold Back The Night,” “Where The Happy People Go,” “Soul Bones,” and their signature song “Disco Inferno” as featured on the soundtrack of “Saturday Night Fever.”
