Music History and Performance at Highlander Auditorium

Upland, CA

Mel Carter

In the 1950s and early 60s, music overflowed with different styles—blues, doo-wop, soul, gospel, and rock and roll still fill the hearts of music lovers. 

On Saturday, August 5, fans of all ages are expected to come together in Upland for one epic show featuring the music of legends in concert presented by Affordable Music Productions. 

The event will feature music from some of the era’s best known performers like Mel Carter, the man who produced one hit song after another and performed the popular pop song “Hold me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me.” Also performing: The Flamingos, singing “I Only Have Eyes for You” and “Lovers Never Say Goodbye” written and sung by lead singer by Terry Johnson; Chris Montez, influenced by his Hispanic culture, known for his own original songs like “Let’s Dance,” and his hit song with Kathy Young “All You Had to Do Was Tell Me;” and Carla Cooke, whose talent mirrors that of her father, Sam Cooke, and whose music was crafted in the church and connects to her family. 

This show hopes to bring joy, memories, and entertainment that will last. Those who remember these artists can reflect on the songs what made them music lovers and share this moment with first-time listeners. 

The show starts at 7:00pm, so get a front row seat for a blast from the past. Tickets are available online from $49 to $79 with no service fees. The Highlander Auditorium is located at 850 N. San Antonio Avenue (at Foothill Boulevard) in Upland.
