Get Up and Dance – Swing, Boogie, Twist, Slop, Mashed Potatoes, Boogaloo, Cha-Cha and even Slow Drag. Put on your dancing shoes or just listen and take a trip down memory lane with Richmond, Virginia’s quintessential oldies vocal group, “Bak N Da Day”. Founded in 1999, the group consists of bass and founder, Russell Bennett; baritone, Anthony Harris; 2nd tenor Jeffrey Goode, and 1st tenors Larry Jones and Larry Everette. It was Bennett’s desire to fulfill a long time dream of singing with an aggregation of colleagues and friends who have fun crooning those evergreens from a time when you could “understand the words”. They draw their material from a repertoire of close to 100 songs, spanning the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. They are masters of vocal group harmony, encompassing several musical genres including Doo-Wop, Motown and Philly Soul. They are able to replicate a variety of sounds since each member is proficient at singing lead.

The group has a dynamic sound and has quite a reputation for being sharp dressers with slick routines. They have performed at many events, hotels and clubs in and around Richmond. They have opened for acts such as Howard Hewitt, Stephanie Mills and the O’Jays. Bak N Da Day is just as comfortable rendering romance ballards by the Flamingos, Skyliners, and the Five Satins as they are with raucus ditties, such as “Tossin and Turnin” (Bobby Lewis). Their grasp of Motown ranges from the sounds of the Temptations and the Miracles to the Four Tops and Jimmy Ruffin with a little Lionel Richie and the Commodores thrown in. They’ll have you swooning to the Stylistics, Delfonics and Spinners or getting up to shag to The Intrigues, “In a Moment”.

In addition to all that, they’ll move you with show tunes from Broadway plays, such as “Showboat” and “Man of LaMancha”. So once again, “Get Up and Dance” “Get Ready”, “Come and Get These Memories” brought to you by Bak N Da Day. You’ll be begging for more.
