One of the most sought-after nightclub and concert acts in the country, Bobby Rydell’s interest in show business began at the ripe age of four. His performance in Bye Bye Birdie and his recordings “Wild One” and “Volare” made him a famous show business performer of the ’60s. Rydell used his talents as an impersonator and drummer mostly in pursuing a musical career rather than an acting career.

 

Bobby Rydell was born Robert Ridarelli in Philadelphia. It was his father who encouraged him to pursue a career in show business. At the age of four, Rydell would sit in front of the TV and impersonate such performers as Milton Berle, Louis Prima and Johnny Ray. He also admired drummer Gene Krupa and began playing the drums at the age of six. At the age of seven and with his father’s encouragement, Rydell began performing in nightclubs in Philadelphia.

Dee Dee Sharp hit the biggest with her first record for the Cameo/Parkway label, a blessing that pigeonholed the Philly songstress as a teenybopper forever to be identified with her number one smash from 1962, “Mashed Potatoes Time.” Living in Philadelphia, the home of Dick Clark’s American Bandstand helped her career; she appeared on the syndicated teen dance show many times from 1962 to 1981. The first black female teen idol, Sharp also became a fixture on Clark’s Caravan of Stars tours, and a familiar face in the popular 16 Magazine.
