The Lovin' Spoonful
The Lovin' Spoonful, a well-loved New York City band of the '60s that produced dozens of effortless pop gems with a unique blend of jug band, folk, blues, and rock & roll. Right on the tails of the Beau Brummels and the Byrds, the Lovin' Spoonful were among the first American groups to challenge the domination of the British Invasion bands in the mid-'60s. Between mid-1965 and the end of 1967, the group was astonishingly successful, issuing one classic hit single after another, including "Do You Believe in Magic?," "You Didn't Have to Be So Nice," "Daydream," "Summer in the City," "Rain on the Roof," "Nashville Cats," and "Six O'clock." Join Steve Boone, Joe Butler, Jerry Yester, Mike Arturi & Phil Smith for an amazing evening of memories and music! Read More >

With a career spanning more than five decades, Olivia Newton-John's successes include four Grammy Awards, numerous Country Music, American Music and People's Choice Awards, ten #1 hits including "Physical," which topped the charts for ten consecutive weeks, and over 15 top 10 singles. In addition, in 2015 Olivia was ranked #20 on Billboard's "Greatest of All Time Hot 100 Artists." In 1978, her co-starring role with John Travolta in "Grease" catapulted Olivia into super-stardom. This film's best-selling soundtrack featured the duets "You're The One That I Want" and "Summer Nights," with Travolta, as well as her mega-hit, "Hopelessly Devoted To You." To date "Grease" remains the most successful movie musical in history. Read More >
