Ray Davies & choir @ The Wellmont Theater

67-year-old Davies brought out 46 members of the Dessoff Choir in the second half of his concert at the Wellmont.

Davies started the evening with an acoustic guitar before adding a rock band and then the choir, in a two-and-a-half-hour performance that covered most of his musical career (although with only a five-second snippet of The Kinks hit, “Lola”).

And yes, the choir joined in for the encore, The Kinks’ first big hit, “You Really Got Me.” -[MontclairPatch]

The Kinks legend Ray Davies is currently on a tour with the Dessoff Chamber Choir. Some of the dates on the tour are to make up for the shows he had to cancel in 2010. Two of those makeup dates took place in the NYC-area over the weekend – Wellmont Theater on Friday (11/18), and the Beacon Theater last night (11/20). We have some pictures from the NJ show. More of them, with the setlists from both shows and more dates, below…
