On January 1964, an episode of “American Bandstand” featured a group of young people dancing to the 1963 hit song by the Dovells and it is absolutely nostalgic.

The band had a more hit song in “The Bristol Stomp,” which reached number 2 on Billboard in the year of its release, 1961. However, “You Can’t Sit Down,” is also undeniably one of their other iconic songs.

True to the lyrics of the songs, people watching the dance number will truly find it hard to keep themselves tied to their seats.

The video also features an energetic and highly enthusiastic group of young guys and girls dancing to the song, which may further inspire any lover of the Dovells to grab their own dancing boots.

Meanwhile, All Music wrote on their website that the Dovells are most popular for their early 60’s dance hits.

Besides “The Bristol Stomp” and “You Can’t Sit Down,” the band had four more remarkable dance hits including “Do the New Continental,” “Bristol Twistin’ Annie,” “Hully Gully Baby,” and “The Jitterbug.”

Formed in 1957, the Dovells were originally known as the Brooktones based on the Overbrook High School in Philadelphia, where the band members attended classes.

Previously, a video uploaded in 2013 also featured a group of young people performing to famous songs from the 60’s hit.

Contrary to the performers on the "American Bandstand" video, these dancers stunned the audience by pulling off a variety of dance forms as per the music that kept changing to that of a more modern era.
