DEADWOOD, S.D. (02/19/18) – Six bands that shaped the world of rock-n-roll in the 60’s and 70’s will make one of their last tour stops at Deadwood Mountain Grand on Sunday, August 26th. The ‘Happy Together Tour – 2018’ featuring The Turtles, Chuck Negron formerly of Three Dog Night, Gary Puckett & The Union Gap, The Association, Mark Lindsay former lead singer of Paul Revere & The Raiders and The Cowsills will all perform their multitude of hits in the Deadwood Mountain Grand Event Center.
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 of The Turtles, featuring Flo & Eddie. Though many remember their 1967 hit, "Happy Together," the Turtles were one of the more enjoyable American pop groups of the '60s, moving from folk-rock inspired by the Byrds to a sparkling fusion of Zombies-inspired chamber pop and straight-ahead, good-time pop reminiscent of the Lovin' Spoonful.
The band’s music was infused with beautiful vocal harmonies courtesy of dual front-men Kaylan and Volman. Though they hit number one in 1967 with the infectious "Happy Together," the Turtles scored more hits throughout their career including “Elenor”, “You Showed Me”, “She’d Rather Be With Me”, “It Aint Me Babe,” and more.
Chuck Negron, formerly the voice of Three Dog Night, has been captivating audiences for over five decades with his iconic vocals, unique humor and brilliant storytelling. His catalog of hits are timeless and appeal to music fans of all ages. Negron was the voice behind such Three Dog Night hits such as “Joy To The World”, “Old Fashioned Love Song”, “One” and “Try A Little Tenderness” among others.
Gary Puckett & The Union Gap are another group that shaped rock and roll music in the 60’s and 70’s. Gary’s powerful and unmistakable signature voice had garnered him six consecutive Gold Records with signature hits such as “Young Girl”, “Lady Willpower”, “This Girl Is A Woman Now” and many more. He has performed on more than thirty network television shows and prime time specials during his career, even adding a command performance for the President and Prince Charles at the White House.
The Association are of the most successful bands to come out of the 60’s, having sold millions of records, tapes, CDs and DVDs as well as earned a number of achievements including a Golden Globe nomination in 1970 for Best Original Song – “Goodbye Columbus”. The group also earned seven Grammy nominations in their career including Best Album, Best Group Vocal Performance and Best Rock & Roll Recording.
The Association has also received RIAA certifications for 6 gold and 3 platinum records. Their album, “the Association Greatest Hits” is now double platinum and continues to be one of the longest best-selling albums in the history of the company. Their hits include the #1’s “Cherish” and “Windy”, as well as “Never My Love”, “Along Comes Mary” and many more.
Mark Lindsay, the former lead singer of Paul Revere & The Raiders is a singer, saxophonist, songwriter, and producer, but is best known as the front-man for Paul Revere & the Raiders, who scored a series of hits from the 1960s into the early '70s. Although the band was named for keyboard player Revere, it was Lindsay who was the most identifiable member, and as time went on, he took over songwriting and producing chores for the group. The group under, Lindsay’s leadership scored hits including "Indian Reservation (The Lament of the Cherokee Reservation Indian)", “Good Thing”, “Kicks”, “Hungry”, “Just Like Me” and more.
The real-life inspiration behind the hit television series The Partridge Family, the Cowsills -- comprised of teen siblings Bill, Bob, Barry, John, Susan, and Paul in tandem with mother Barbara -- were one of the biggest pop acts of the late '60s, scoring a series of hits including "The Rain, the Park and Other Things" and "Hair" with their angelic harmonies and sun-kissed melodies.
“What a way to finish the Kool Deadwood Nites weekend than with six of the most famous rock and roll bands of the 60’s and 70’s,” said Susan Kightlinger, General Manager at Deadwood Mountain Grand. “This is going to be a show to remember.”
