Little Anthony and The Imperials to Perform at Cannery Casino July 15

Little Anthony & The Imperials bring their dynamic stage show back to The Club inside the Cannery Casino & Hotel on Saturday, July 11 at 8 p.m.

Fronted by Anthony Gourdine, Little Anthony & The Imperials are one of the most unforgettable pop and R&B acts of the ‘50s and ‘60s. Originally known as The Chesters, the group changed their name to The Imperials and signed with End Records in 1958. The group’s very first record made music history. It was a rare double-sided smash with the side “A” track, “Tears On My Pillow,” eventually becoming one of music’s most enduring love ballads. The flip side hit, “Two People In The World,” was also a phenomenal hit and made this one of the most popular double-sided ballad records in vocal group history.

Little Anthony & The Imperials would continue to enjoy a string of smash hits on the pop and R&B charts. Their hits include such classics as “Shimmy, Shimmy, Ko-Ko Bop,” “Goin’ Out Of My Head,” “I’m On The Outside (Looking In)” and “Hurt So Bad.” Little Anthony & The Imperials are inductees of the Long Island Music Hall of Fame and the Vocal Group Hall of Fame and were inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2009.
