She said, we want to be the face, look and the sound of good, quality singing and music — to bring back this era of entertainment. The music is so good, optimistic and upbeat.
“We’ve been very surprised by the reaction. Everywhere we go, there’s at least one or two songs where people say, ‘Oh, I haven’t heard that in years,’ or ‘That was my grandmother’s favorite song,’ and they recognize it. A lot of the songs from this era have stuck with us in our musical consciousness as Americans,” Dreith said.
So when we start singing “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” or “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree,” everybody immediately smiles and they tap their feet, or clap their hands along with us, and they recognize most of our songs. The set list will span from the 1920s through the Fifties to a few arrangements of 1980s songs, such as Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” and “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” by the Eurythmics, she said.
Classics by Rosemary Clooney (the national legend from Cincinnati), The McGuire Sisters (born in Middletown and grew up in Miamisburg), Doris Day and The Andrews Sisters will round out the night’s song list.
Founded in 2013, the Queen City Sisters have performed at a wide range of venues, including the 2015 Major League Baseball All Star Game, which was played in Cincinnati.
