About the artist | IT’S MY PARTY
We believe there truly is magic in a young girl’s heart. And we think the music that captures it best is the sound of the 1960s girls groups! The idea for our group was born in 1984 when record store owner Ron Stein put The Chiffons’ Greatest Hits into the hands of a young rock ’n‘ roll enthusiast named John Giotto. (John is our producer and our drummer.) Thanks to Ron’s musical mentoring, John was inspired with a vision that would last for over 30 years! Today, we’re proud to say IT’S MY PARTY! is a 1960s vintage experience, complete with a 14-piece orchestra and original songs written especially for us! Our tight harmonies, vintage costumes, and retro choreography are all set to the highest standards of the 1960s girl groups. When we’re on stage singing our hearts out, we’re the closest thing to an authentic 1960s girl group you’ll find today!
Funk, Soul, and Rock and Roll make Blue Eyed Soul a favorite dance band for the Finger Lakes and Southern Tier.
