Reflections band revives hits from 1950s and 1960s

PROSPER – As the Town closes out its year-long celebration of its incorporation 100 years ago, the Party at the Park on April 18 will feature a slightly more recent throwback, says Town Secretary Robyn Battle, chair of the
Centennial Committee.

“With our featured band, we went as far back as we could go,” she said. “The Reflections band brings us memories of the 50s and 60s which is still about 40 years after the 1914 event that we’re celebrating.”

The Party at the Park, which is the Centennial Celebration’s final event, is set for Saturday, April 18 at Frontier Park. The celebration, featuring games, rides, food and entertainment, starts at 2 p.m. and continues to 6 p.m.

Free parking and shuttle rides from the back lot of Prosper High School will be offered from 1:30 p.m. until the last person is picked up.

The Reflections will play from 4:15 p.m. until 6 p.m. The band was formed by merging the well-known acapella doo wop group “4 Ever Young” with instrumental accompaniment from a guitar, a bass, a saxophone, keyboard and
drums. The result was the creation of a 1950s rock and roll revue in the spirit of the best known bands of the genre’s early days.

The band performs well-known songs and hits from performers like Elvis Presley, Dion and the Belmonts, The Edsels, The Diamonds, Frankie Ford, The Ventures, Bobby Lewis, The Coasters, The Crests, The Marcels, The Centurions,
The Revels, The Del Vikings, The Five Satins, Joey Dee and the Starlighters, The Del Shannons, Chubby Checker, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, and many more.

“We’re sure The Reflections will put on a wonderful show,” said Battle. “They will give us a very entertaining musical look back at a slice of the Town’s long history.”
