Shirley Alston Reeves.

7 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $30-$100.

It's nostalgia incarnate Saturday at Robinson. Once again jointly sponsored by AETN and Celebrity Attractions, Doo Wop in Concert pulls together a handful of singing stars you either haven't thought about in years or are too young to know. Perhaps the biggest of the bunch is Shirley Alston Reeves, the lead singer of the Shirelles, who had hits like “Mama Said,” “Tonight's the Night,” “This Is Dedicated to the One I Love” and “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow.” Sharing the bill are the Cadillacs (“Speedo,” “Gloria”), Terry Johnson's Flamingos (“I Only Have Eyes for You”), the Marcels (“Heartaches”) and Frankie Ford (“Sea Cruise”).
