The Poets (50's & 60's Cover Band)

The Poets are a 6 piece group consisting of the finest musicians and showmen in Northeast Pennsylvania, and are the only band that doesn’t just “play songs”.  Our sets consist of the greatest songs that everyone in the audience knows from the 50’s and 60’s to the Top of the Charts, along with several costume changes which make these songs even greater.  And The Poets are the ONLY band that will entertain and keep the audience at your event for several hours, whether they are dancing or especially if they are sitting and watching.  We are the FEATURED ACT at the Adamstown Days, the Schwenksville Summer Concert Series in Lansdale, PA, Collegeville Concert Series, the Eagle Lake Summer Concert Series, the Souderton Park Concert Series, and the Jefferson Township Amphitheater Summer Concert Series in Hopatcong, New Jersey.  Our concert sets feature OUTSTANDING tributes to Elvis, Neil Diamond, The Beatles, The Four Seasons, The Beach Boys and Johnny Cash.

 

The Poets have been performing since 1972 and continue to play to packed houses wherever they perform and have appeared with numerous national acts such as The Monkees, Tina Turner, The Four Seasons, Dion, and the Righteous Brothers just to name a few.  A complete list is attached for your information. They were also the featured act on several of Royal Caribbean’s ships.

The Poets are the main act for the Lackawanna County La Festa Italiana attracting 5 to 10 thousand people on the night that they perform, and have been featured as a main-stage act at the Wayne County Fair, The Wyoming County Fair, The Green Dreher Fair, The Luzerne County Fair, The Northeast Fair, and also the Harford Fair.  They were also featured on the Blue Ridge Cable Network in a 3-hour live performance from Penns’ Peak; and on June 11, 2009 were featured on WVIA, Public Television, on a one-hour special.

On July 31, 2010, BOBBY RYDELL sang his #1 Hit, Volare with the Poets at a show in Hershey.
