DON'T KNOCK THE ROCK!
DRESS UP IN THE 1950S

Lil' Mo & The Dynaflos do so much music from the 1950s, I thought it would be fun to theme out our dance in that style.

If you need some ideas look at the clip below from "Don't Knock The Rock".

"Don't Knock The Rock!" was a super fun movie from 1956 where s disc jockey tries to prove to teenagers' parents that rock 'n' roll is harmless and won't turn their kids into juvenile delinquents. It features some of the top Rock 'n' Roll stars of the 1950s, including: Bill Haley and the Comets, The Treniers, Little Richard, and more. There's also LOADS of swing dancing! The fun part comes in when the kids show what their parents were doing in a big 1920s Charleston number.

Take a look at a clip from the movie here:

ABOUT LIL' MO & THE DYNAFLOS

Rockin' '50 - Early '60's style classic and original Doo Wop, Rhythm & Blues

Lil' Mo and the Dynaflos came about one night around 2004 at the World Famous Derby Club in Los Angeles as "Lil' Mo" Morris Everett and Cliff Quan discussed their love for Doo Wop music. Lil' Mo, being a veteran of previous vocal groups and Cliff, being an avid Doo Wop listener and rockabilly guitar player, decided "Why not give it a go ourselves"? The rest is history!

The original group consisted of 5 vocalists and 4 musicians, whom Cliff recruited from the creme of the crop of L.A.'s Rockabilly and '50's Rhythm and Blues scene. Unlike other vocal groups, Cliff's idea was to make the band an integral part of the group (instead of a vocal group with a back up band). This idea was to form the structure and sound of "The Dynaflos". The current line-up consists of 4 vocalists and 4 musicians.

The Dynaflo's set consists of some obscure 50's-60's Doo Wop, some standards and some original tunes. Something for everyone! They blend their style of 50's, 60's, Doo Wop and R&B, with an upbeat, rockin' band. Combine that with a high energy stage show and you'll find one undeniably fun, hard working, Doo Wop group that is hard to ignore.
