The Shirelles had a string of great hits in the ’60s as one of America’s leading girl groups, yielding such classics as “Will You Love Me Tomorrow” and “Tonight’s the Night.”

Today, original Shirelle Beverly Lee leads a trio that captures the forlorn soul and uplifting doo-wop harmonies. The Shirelles are visiting Bethesda Blues & Jazz Supper Club tomorrow for a Salute to the Troops on Veterans Day!

To honor our veterans this coming Tuesday (11/11/14), HBO, Starbucks and Chase have teamed together to present a free concert on the National Mall.

The lineup of The Concert for Valor looks impressive. The Black Keys, Bruce Springsteen, Dave Grohl, Carrie Underwood, Metallica, just to name a few.

There will also be appearances by Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg, Meryl Streep and more.

Admission if FREE and it starts at 7pm. The Mall will no doubt be packed and crazy. You might want to get there early. Plan ahead.

Hopefully DC has learned a thing or two about organizing big events on The Mall, especially after 2010’s Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear brought in far more people than expected.
