See Jimmy Clanton at PA Music Expo

By on September 4, 2019

The Pennsylvania Music Expo, hosted by the Keystone Record Collectors, continues to be a shopping bonanza of records, CDs, DVDs and music memorabilia/collectibles. The Sunday Sept. 8 show will have an added attraction: the return of million selling recording artist and movie star, Jimmy Clanton.

Clanton, originally from Baton Rouge, La., charted 12 records on the Billboard Top 100 between 1958 and 1969. His chart entries included three top 10 songs: “Just A Dream,” “Go Jimmy Go,” and “Venus in Blue Jeans.” Clanton toured extensively with the Dick Clark Caravan of Stars, and had major roles in the films “Go, Johnny Go,” and “Teenage Millionaire.” Following his chain of hits, he was a radio host, playing the oldies on local radio station WHEX, Columbia, from 1974-76.

His first appearance at the Pennsylvania Music Expo was in December 2014. Come out for his “meet and greet” session between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., during which time Clanton will be performing a few songs for his many fans as well as signing items people may want to bring.

Admission is always free to the Pennsylvania Music Expo, being held 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Spooky Nook Sports ­ LANCO, 1901 Miller Road, East Petersburg. Learn more at recordcollectors.org.
