Vocal Group Hall Of Fame 2008

The Vocal Group Hall of Fame Induction Concerts and ceremonies were held in Youngstown, Ohio at the Chevrolet Center. What a great venue. The three nights of shows were beyond anyone's wildest expectations. The performers were at their very best. The Vocal Group Hall of Fame always does everything first class.

Ed and Bill are with Squirrel and Marshall from the Chi-lites.
Two of the greatest people in the business; Charlie Thomas of the Drifters and their musical director, Jack Columbo.
Linda Jensen of the Angels is trying to explain to Bill why he's here. Good luck!!!
Bob Crosby is the Director of the Vocal Group Hall of fame and his mother goes to the shows to show her support. Speaking of support, we think she's trying to hold Bill up.
Jim Yester of the Association and Tony Butala of the Lettermen talk show schedules backstage.
Ed and Bill had breakfast with singer Billy Shelton. Billy lost his appetite-we wonder why!!!
Ed Levert of the O'Jays and Ed backstage.
Ed and Linda Jensen of the Angels spent some time being interviewed by Jimmy Jay on his Rewind radio show.
Inductees, The Pointer Sisters, were represented by Ruth Pointer.seen here with Ed.
Martha Reeves of Martha and the Vandellas and Ed sat in with Jimmy Jay backstage.
Gretchemn Christopher of the Fleetwoods represented her group at the 10th Anniversary shows.
Tony Butala of the Lettermen is talking over show schedules with the Angels.
Bill and Ed went to a 50's diner in Sharon, Pennsylvania for breakfast a couple of mornings. Tonya was their waitress, much to her sorrow. We figure she felt that some days just don't start out very well.
Joan, who also works at Sam's Diner, tried to keep her distance. Wise move!!!!
When renovations are completed, the Columbia Theater and ajoining property will be the new headquarters and performance center for the Vocal Group Hall of Fame
A few years back, the Induction Ceremonies were held in Sharon, Pennsylvania. Many of the attending artists set their hand and footprints in fresh concrete outside the theate. How cool is that!
Jimmy Jay interviewed Squirell and Marshall of the Chi-lites on Rewind.
It was a real pleasure meeting one of our favorite vocalists, Jimmy Sacca of the Hilltoppers.
Tony Butala and three members of the Lovin' Spoonful.
