Davy Jones , the heartthrob of the TV phenom group “The Monkees” will perform his chart busting hits, which include “Daydream Believer,” “A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You,” and “Valleri.” Jones’ career began at the age of eleven, when he appeared on the soap opera Coronation Street . He was offered a contract with Columbia Pictures, and soon landed a role on a new television series called “ The Monkees.” In 1966, The Monkees won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Television Series. Since the end of the show, he has appeared in numerous theatre productions, including The Boyfriend , and Godspell. Davy Jones continues to wow audiences with his solo concerts and numerous television appearances.
Gary Puckett , past singer & guitarist of “The Union Gap” is noted for being one of the few artists whose first five releases went gold, not even Elvis had accomplished this. Puckett will bring his popular hits such as “Young Girl,” “Woman Woman” and “Over You” to the North Fork Theatre for one exceptional evening. Gary joined Davy Jones & “The Monkees” on their national reunion tour, which established itself as THE major box office success of the 1986 touring season. Gary only continues to impress and has also performed at the White House and has made multiple television appearances. He is also well known for the astounding hit “I Just Don’t Know What to Do With Myself.”
Chuck Negron, Bronx native and former lead voice of the dominating and powerful three part harmony that was Three Dog Night, has quite the impressive resume. The band broke through with their first million seller “One” with Chuck’s solo lead vocals and his soulful four octave range. Other hits include “Joy to the World,” which was also the title of the multi-Grammy nominated album and 1971 record of the year. “Mama Told Me (Not to Come),” “Black & White,” “Shambala” and “An Old Fashioned Love Song” are a few more reasons why Negron has made such an impact as one of the great singers in rock and pop. Negron expanded his repertoire by adding 5 solo CD’s to his list and is still amazing fans with his astounding voice.
The Ides of March, the rock group formed while classmates at a Chicago high school went from winning a local “battle of the bands” to becoming a long withstanding success capping off 41 years together with the original members still in place. Their signature song “Vehicle” and the smash hit “You Wouldn’t Listen” are only two of the reasons that this band has been able to defy the odds and stick around. The Ides are still marching on with recent releases such as “Age Before Beauty” and “Ideology” which showcase their talent and catalog their greatest hits.
