Back together again! The sixties girl group that everyone loves is bringing back the sun, fun and all the great songs they sang on the boardwalk at the Jersey Shore...all to raise money to save Sandy Shores Mobile Home Beach Resort. These Jersey Girls relive their heyday in a non-stop celebration of song with over 30 hits like "It's In His Kiss," "Yellow Polka Dot Bikini," "Heat Wave,"and "Ain't No Mountain High Enough." The Bikinis are irresistible!
