Legend of stage and screen, Frankie Avalon, is set to perform at The Maryland Theatre on Thursday, November 17. Avalon dominated the music charts for years with dozens of popular songs in the 50's and 60's including number one hits "Venus" and "Why". Avalon's string of Gold Record Million-Seller singles and albums included 31 charted hits. In 1959 alone, Frankie had six hits that were in the top 40 and his music became one of the defining sounds of "Pre-Beatles" Rock and Roll. Avalon also achieved fame on the silver screen with his 30 motion picture credits. Most notably, he starred alongside actress Annette Funicello as the romantic leads in the popular Beach Party movies in the 1960's.
