Seventeen

Denver Post (CO):

The 17th Avenue Allstars celebrate 17 years of harmony on Friday (June 17). Seven former members of the Allstars will join the five current members onstage at the 1770 Sherman St. Event Complex. Alumni include Jake Schroeder (Opie Gone Bad), former Miss Colorado La Tanya Hall and "Star Search" finalist Robert Johnson.

I remember listening to the 17th Avenue Allstars when they sang at Acappella's, which ruled on 17th and Humboldt in the late '80s. John Hersh ran the joint with Philly cheesesteaks and singing groups - and I'm still recovering. Hersh is living the good life, running an inn with his wife, Joni, in Eleuthera, the Bahamas. Check him out at bahamahouseinn.com. Tickets are $17.
