The Happy Together Returns To Asbury Park In 2016

(ASBURY PARK, NJ) -- The Happy Together Tour returns to the historic Paramount Theatre, on the Asbury Park Boardwalk, on August 13th at7:00pm.  This summer tradition, to benefit the Light of Day Foundation, celebrating the music of the 60's and 70's delivers the biggest hits of the era by the original artists.  One evening featuring over 50 solid gold hits!  This year's unparalled line up includes your hosts The Turtles featuring Flo & Eddie, along with Chuck Negron - formally of Three Dog Night, Mark Lindsay - former Lead Singer of Paul Revere & The Raiders, Gary Puckett & The Union Gap, The Cowsills, and The Spencer Davis Group- starring Spencer Davis. The Happy Together Tour began back in 1984 with mainstays, The Turtles. 

Starting up again in 2010 and now in it's 7th consecutive year.  The overwhelming response and love for the music has endured and The Happy Together tour has become a summer staple in Asbury Park, bringing us back in time, celebrating the soundtrack of the 60's and 70's.

The Turtles featuring Flo & Eddie are the signature headliners of the tour and act as your musical hosts with their antics, satire and number of hits.  Led by vocalists Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman, known as Flo & Eddie.  Hits include "Happy Together," "She'd Rather Be With Me," "Elenore," "It Ain't Me Babe," and "You Showed Me."

Chuck Negron, formally of Three Dog Night, is thrilled to be on the tour and brings some of the group's biggest hits to the stage. Hits include "Joy To The World," "Mama Told Me Not To Come," "Shambala," "One," and "Easy To Be Hard."

Mark Lindsay, former lead singer of Paul Revere & The Raiders, was the cofounder and lead singer of this seminal act from its inception in 1963 through 1975. His voice is heard on all 16 of the band's Top 20 hits like "Kicks," "Hungry," "I'm Not Your Stepping Stone," and "Indian Reservation."

The Cowsills were the surprise of last year's tour, wowing the crowds with their effervescent pop magic. Bob, Paul & Susan Cowsill are a singing family and the inspiration for television's 'The Partridge Family.'  Songs include "The Rain, The Park & Other Things," "Hair," "Indian Lake," and "Love American Style."

Gary Puckett & The Union Gap is on Happy Together by popular demand.  Puckett's big signature voice will be belting out his hits one more time! Hits include "Young Girl," "Over You," "Woman Woman," and more.

The Spencer Davis Group starring Spencer Davis marks the band's first appearance on the Happy Together tour. A stalwart of the British Invasion, The Spencer Davis Group personified swinging London and British coo of the 1960's with songs like "Gimme Some Lovin," "I'm a Man," and "Keep on Runnin'."
