Hot Autumn Nights: October 11

Live Nation presents Hot Autumn Nights starring Tommy James & The Shondells, The Turtles featuring Flo & Eddie, The Grass Roots, and The Buckinghams at the Capital One Bank Theatre at Westbury on Saturday, October 11 at 8 p.m.

Tommy James is an American poprock musician, singer, songwriter and record producer, best known as leader of the 1960's rock band Tommy James

and the Shondells. After a DJ found a copy of James' single "Hanky Panky" in 1965, the song and his career took off. From 1967 to 1969, the group turned out hit after hit, many which made it to the top ten

including "I Think We're Alone Now," "Mony Mony," "Crimson and Clover," and "Sweet Cherry Wine." To this day, Tommy James has sold over 100 million records.

He has been awarded 23 gold singles and nine gold and platinum albums. James has left an indelible mark on his industry and his generation with credits and longevity as an artist, songwriter, and performer that few have equaled.

With the ever increasing popularity of his music, there seems to be no end in sight.

The Turtles were one of the more enjoyable American pop groups of the 1960s, moving from folk-rock to a sparkling fusion of chamber-pop and straight-ahead good-time pop. They produced at least a dozen memorable, radio-friendly chart singles including the hits "Happy Together," "Let Me Be" and "You Baby."

The Grass Roots are a U.S. rock and roll band who, between 1967 and 1972, set a record for being on the Billboard charts for 307 straight weeks. They have sold over 30 million records worldwide and are one of only nine bands that have charted twenty nine or more Top 100 Billboard singles. Some of their hit singles include "Lets Live For Today," "Things I Should Have Said," "Midnight Confessions," "Wait A Million Years," "Temptation Eyes," "Sooner Or Later" and "Two Divided By Love."

They have had a number of Billboard Top 10 hits including "Kind Of A Drag," "Don't You Care," "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy," "Hey Baby (They're Playing Our Song)" and "Susan."
