The annual Golden Oldies Spectacular really lives up to its name when it rolls around on the concert calendar for Proctors in Schenectady at 7pm on Saturday, November 5.

The show promises to be a musical stroll down memory lane with four top-notch performers who racked up strings of hit records in the ’60s. Tickets are on sale now, priced from $39.75-$54.75.

Here’s the line-up of performers for the 2016 Golden Oldies Spectacular:

HITS: “He’s a Rebel,” “Da Doo Ron Ron,” “He’s Sure the Boy I Love,” “Uptown”
The New York Times has said, “Darlene Love’s thunderbolt voice is as embedded in the history of rock and roll as Eric Clapton’s guitar or Bob Dylan’s lyrics.” She’s at the top of her career, winning an Academy Award for 2013’s “20 Feet from Stardom.” And her new CD, Introducing Darlene Love (produced by Steve Van Zandt), is racking up rave reviews.

HITS: “Kissin’ Time,” “We Got Love,” “Wild One,” “Swingin’ School,” “Sway,” “Volare”
Philadelphia born and bred, Rydell appeared on “American Bandstand” and other music shows, as well as starring in movies, including “Bye Bye Birdie,” in which he co-starred with Ann Margaret.

HITS: “The Gypsy Cried,” “Two Faces Have I,” “Rhapsody in the Rain,” “I’m Gonna Make You Mine,” “Beyond the Blue Horizon,” “Lightning Strikes”
He’s one of Proctors’ audiences all-time oldies favorites. Lou Christie scored his first hit in 1962 while still a teenager, and, unlike most of his peers, Christie wrote most of his hits, collaborating with Twyla Herbert. And, best of all, he can still hit those incredible high notes.

HITS: “Tallahassee Lassie,” “Way Down Yonder in New Orleans,” “Abigail Beecher,” “Where the Action Is,” “Palisades Park”
Opening the show and appearing for the first time at Proctors will be Freddy “Boom Boom” Cannon, who appeared on “American Bandstand” more times than any other performer.
