The Happy Together Tour 2017 stars The Turtles featuring Flo & Eddie, Chuck Negron (Formerly of Three Dog Night), The Association, The Cowsills, The Box Tops and The Archies Ron Dante.
The Happy Together Tour of 2017 is back by popular demand, once again highlighted by Flo and Eddie of The Turtles. Their debut single, Dylan’s “It Ain’t Me Babe,” went Top Ten in 1965 and launched the band on a brief string of hits: “Let Me Be,” “You Baby,” “Grim Reaper of Love,” and “Can I Get to Know You Better.” The Turtles weren’t content, however, and were about to break up; but first they released “Happy Together,” which proved to be their biggest hit, and one of 1967′s Top Ten records. With their career reinvigorated, “She’d Rather Be with Me,” “You Know What I Mean,” “Elenore,” and “You Showed Me” were their last single releases.
Chuck Negron, formerly of Three Dog Night, became a founding member of the group in 1967. While Chuck was with Three Dog Night they had a phenomenal 18 consecutive top 20 hits, 21 top 40 hits, 8 top 10 hits and 4 number one hits – not to mention 5 top 10 albums and 11 top 20 albums. Some of their hits include “One” (Is the Loneliest Number), “Lady Samantha,” “Old Fashioned Love Song,” “Eli’s Coming,” and “Pieces of April.” Discover why Negron and Three Dog Night had the whole world singing “Joy to the World.”
The Association, one of the most successful bands to come out of the 60s have 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.” During the 60s, they had numerous hits at or near the top of the Billboard charts (including "Windy", "Cherish", "Never My Love" and "Along Comes Mary") and were the lead-off band at 1967's Monterey Pop Festival.
The real-life inspiration behind the hit television series The Partridge Family, The Cowsills were one of the biggest pop acts of the late 60s. Distinguished by their angelic harmonies and sun-kissed melodies, the group’s origins lie with brothers Bill and Bob, who as children began their singing careers covering Everly Brothers hits. Their hits include “Take A Letter to Maria,” and “Hair.”
Original founding members Bill Cunningham and Gary Talley have reformed The Box Tops to keep their great catalogue of music accessible to the public. The Box Tops are a ground breaking 60s group who first charted in 1967 with a song called “The Letter.” During 1967-69, the group released 4 albums and 10 singles. “The Letter” remained at the top of Billboard's chart for four weeks in 1967; their third single, “Cry Like A Baby,” hit the number two position for two weeks in 1968.
The Archies Ron Dante is a singer, songwriter, session vocalist, and record producer best known as the lead singer for the fictional cartoon band The Archies, as well as the group The Cuff Links. He is also well known as the co-producer of Barry Manilow’s first nine albums. The Archies single “Sugar, Sugar” was the number-one selling record of 1969. In 1969, Dante recorded an album under the group name of The Cuff Links. Providing both lead and background vocals through overdubbing, as he did with most of the male Archies's vocals, Dante hit the U.S. Top Ten with the single "Tracy," at the same time that "Sugar, Sugar" occupied the top of the chart. Dante was anonymous on both tracks. Contrary to popular belief, the lead verses of another Archies single, "Jingle Jangle" (portrayed as being sung by either Betty or Veronica), were not sung by a female vocalist, but rather by Dante using falsetto vocals.
