On July 30, 2011 Lincoln Center in New York City in association with The Ponderosa Stomp is presenting an afternoon symposium and evening outdoor concert titled "She's Got The Power - A Girl Group Extravaganza".

It's a celebration of a New York pop music sound that dominated the radio airwaves in the pre-British Invasion 1960's, and which elevated female artists, many of them women of color, into the upper echelons of the then male-dominated teenage rock & roll scene.

Participating will be Lesley Gore, and original members of the Crystals, Angels, Cookies, Chantels, Toys, and others, and on July 23rd Joel Najman's My Place program will present these artists' most famous recordings. Songs including "My Boyfriend's Back", "Da Doo Ron Ron", "It's My Party" "A Lover's Concerto" are among those featured on the program.
