Sirens of the 60’s a fantastic musical hit in Prescott

The “Sirens of the 60’s” female singing trio swung through town this past Sunday afternoon and gave a fabulous performance to the delight of a large and receptive crowd of about 200 people at the brand new Prescott High School Auditorium.

Two local singers — Colleen Raye and her sister Debbie O’Keefe — were joined by talented Minneapolis vocalist Katie Gearty to perform a variety of classic hits from famous female singers of the 1960s.  Some of the popular songs included “Up, Up and Away” (Marilyn McCoo), “To Sir with Love” (LULU), “Anyone Who Had a Heart” (Dusty Springfield), “Walk on By” (Dionne Warwick), and “These Boots Are Made For Walkin’ ” (Nancy Sinatra).

Many more classics were performed in an electrifying show that lasted more than two hours. The event was for a good cause as money raised from ticket sales goes directly to the Prescott Area Food Shelf. Director Pete French helped coordinate the event, which proved to be a big hit with the local community.

Read the rest of this story in the print edition of the Prescott Journal, on newsstands and in town on Wednesday.
