The concert is interesting and fun entertainment that celebrates early rock and roll and the musical talent of the late Del Shannon, an internationally known artist who was raised in Coopersville as Charles "Chuck" Westover. His 30 year career included writing and producing for well known performers as well as recording other hits following his 1961 release of "Runaway." The Del Shannon Show stars James Popenhagen, who has a special sensivity and connection to Del's music. James and his band give a high calibre performance that captures the sound and energy of the impressive shows once given by Del. James has performed the Del Shannon Show in this country from coast to coast. He is currently working with agents to take the show abroad to England and Australia.
