The Happy Together Tour 2024 featuring The Turtles, Jay & the Americans, The Association, Bad Finger, The Vogues and the Cowsills

THE TURTLES – Very few rock performers have remained as vital through the 1960’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s as have Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman. Initially they made their mark with the Turtles, then they joined Frank Zappa’s Mothers of Invention, and then they glided into their own Flo & Eddie persona, dishing out records that have encompassed a multitude of personalities. They’ve always been smart enough to have responded to the latest worthwhile trends in a fashion that has yielded an abundance of quality records, and more than their share of hits. Let’s pause just for a second to make the totally subjective case that the Turtles were the closest America ever came to having a Beatles. Others, like the Lovin’ Spoonful, Rascals and Beach Boys, certainly had as many hits, but the Turtles hits like “Happy Together” and “Elenore” were better conceived and arranged and, like the Beatles, transcended styles. Two slightly bewildered kids from Westchester, NY, thrust into the fast lane of rock ‘n’ roll stardom – hits, fame, national tours, hanging out with the Beatles, joining the Mothers of Invention, acting in the “200 Motels” movie, and on and on and on……

THE VOGUES – From the mid1960’s into the 70’s, “The Vogues” could be heard on radio stations coast to coast. They were also featured on the top television shows of the time like, The Ed Sullivan Show, The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, The Mike Douglas Show, multiple times with Dick Clark’s iconic American Bandstand, and many more. The Vogues unique sound was instantly memorable. It was a lively fresh rock’n roll with an American style that pierced the British invasion.” Their first song to top the charts at #4 and capture hearts was “You’re The One” written by Petula Clark in 1965. Who can forget the Top 5 hit “Five O’clock World?”  In 1997, comedian and actor Drew Carey adopted this as the theme song for his very popular television sitcom, adding new fuel to the Vogues fire. You may recall “You Are My Special Angel?”. Bobby Helms first hit the airwaves with this unforgettable lyric, but the Vogues took it to another level using lush orchestration combined with powerful vocal harmonies to make it even more memorable. Also appearing in 1968, “Turn Around Look at Me” took the world by storm. It was also an orchestral love ballad that established this new sound for the Vogues. Four gold records,  two platinum albums, and fifty plus years later, The Vogues continue to sellout audiences at concerts around the country.

THE COWSILLS – Back in the 1960’s, four brothers who wanted to be The Beatles formed a band called The Cowsills. The original Cowsills consisted of Bill on guitar, Bob on guitar and organ, Barry on bass and John on drums. Early gigs were at school dances and churches around their home in Newport, RI. Eventually, as their harmonic sound was perfected, they got a regular gig on Bannisters Wharf in Newport where they would sing Beatle songs hour after hour. Early recordings were released by the four brothers on Joda and Mercury Records. Barbara (“mini-mom”) joined the group to record “The Rain, The Park and Other Things” and shortly thereafter 7 year old Susan and brother, Paul, were added to the group. They were signed by MGM records and the group began it’s climb to the top!
