Merrillville-based vocal group Stormy Weather has returned from its "Doo-Wop in the Balkans" tour, where it entertained the troops on U.S. and NATO military bases in Kosovo, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Tuzla, Prishtina and other parts of the Balkan region. "One of our stops was at a NATO base in Sarajevo, where we were fortunate enough to interact with troops from 40 countries, all working together to stabilize a war-torn country" group leader-founder Henry Farag reported.

"We learned a lot, saw a lot and sang a lot. Being a cappella, we not only did our regular performances, but also did spontaneous jamming in the mess halls, barracks and for individual soldiers from all over the world." A special thrill for "old school" street-corner singer Farag was being able to "doo-wop" on the thousand-year-old street corners of Vienna and Amsterdam.
