Come let us serenade you as we return to Flushing for a special show in The Queens Public Library’s Cultural Bridge Series. This time we will be sharing the stage with our new friends On Point performing those “can’t sit still” classics spanning R&B, Motown and Disco. The show starts at 2pm with On Point and then, at 3pm The New York Serenaders (humbly) take the stage. We are proud to be part of The Cultural Bridge Series and have planned a couple of surprises for this special event. So join us as we travel back in time and across the dance floor•.
There won’t actually be a dance floor but we promise you’ll be singing and bopping along right in your seat.
Hey Joizee! Due to the crazy weather forecast the Fort Lee Public Library did the right thing and postponed our planned January show. The good news is we will be serenading you but in the warmth of the Summer! So save the date (August 11th at 2pm) and prepared to be serenaded until the long wait becomes a frosty memory.
We will be doing our thing for The Arthur Avenue Summer Concert Series Stage this Saturday from Noon – 3 and would love to see all of our friends there to sing along to the Doo Wop music we all love so much. We’ll be at the corner of 186th and Arthur Avenue in the heart of The Bronx’s Little Italy so there should also be a whole lot of delicious food to dine on.
Here is the organizers flyer. Check out our pic (middle right). We look so thin! I guess Doo Wop is good for fitness.
Keep an eye out for our show on “News 12 – The Bronx”.

This wasn’t just another Sunday in Madison Square Park. If we’re checking the calendar this doesn’t make a lot of sense. And no we’re not in Tampa. But we New York Serenaders are blissfully ignorant of the season, so by the rule of “weather permitting” we sang our hearts out. Thanks Tariq for these shots. Otherwise who’d believe 62° in December? (Probably climate scientists.)
While a couple of us have attended Stu’s event this is the first time we had the thrill of performing at this renown gathering of Doo Wop fans and performers.
Doo Wop Dan performs The Desires’ “I Wanna Rendezvous with You”
Hot-Rodd performs The Cadillacs’ “Gloria”
Ronnie D performs The Drifters’ “True Love”
The New York Serenaders had the honor of sharing the stage at this NJ Doo-Wop Group Harmony Singers Club. North Jersey’s “Party of Five” graced the stage and Stu’s very own house resident group “Still Around” from NY and NJ added their considerable talents. Add to that Stu’s tradition of inviting doo-wop singers and groups from all around the tri-state area like MC Hattie Winterfield andCarlos Vazquez (Our resident sound man also a singer). If attending for a very fun day go on events page and select going and how many. Thank you Pat and Stu Pushkin for keeping Doo-Wop singing alive.
The New York Serenaders would like to send out a big THANK YOU to everyone that came to our show at The Queens Library in Flushing. Despite the pouring rain we had over a hundred of you snapping your fingers, tapping your feet and singing along.
We want to thank Rod Nunez for the generous contribution of his talents in recording the entire performance. We are busily editing the hour long show to bring some of it to you. Here are a couple of samples. Enjoy.
“I’m So Happy” – DooWop Dan in the lead
“Teenager In Love” – Joey Guitar in the lead
“Glory of Love” – Ronnie D in the lead
“Solitaire” – Hot-Rodd in the lead
We are preparing for our next shows now so stay updated at this URL for that.
