The Monkees: Rare Performances (1966 1970)
The Monkees may have started as a gimmick, but they ended up being one of the most beloved bands on the 1960s. Join us for a one-night-only celebration of the music and fun that The Monkees brought to their fans. This lively event will blend song promos, ads, and films of rare live performances to create a salute to the group, with time at the end for fans to share their memories and insights. Among the songs that will be featured are The Monkees theme song, Last Train to Clarksville, I'm a Believer, Pleasant Valley Sunday, Daydream Believer, A Little Bit Me, a Little Bit You, (I'm Not Your) Stepping Stone, Valleri, and many more!

Although Davy Jones, Michael Nesmith, Peter Tork, and Mickey Dolenz were hired for the television show to act the part of a band, each had the talent and dedication to go beyond the limits of their contract by working hard to make their fictional band into a reality. The show started out as four crazy musicians who lived in a bachelor pad and behaved in ways that echoed those of the Beatles in A Hard Day's Night and Help!, then morphed into a real band that is credited to have been among the first groups to create music videos that soon were copied by all the bands. A year after the show started, The Monkees were able to perform together in live concerts, creating a commercial success. In 1966, they outsold the Beatles in the U.S. The Monkees' first four albums went straight to #1 on the Billboard charts and multi-platinum sales. Their early songs were written by a variety of talents that included Harry Nilsen, Stephen Stills, Neil Young, Neil Diamond, Carole King & Gerry Goffin, Ellie Greenwich & Jeff Barry, Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil, Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart, and Michael Nesmith. By the third album, Headquarters, they were all creating their own songs. No Monkees Fan will want to miss this amazing evening of great music and zany fun. (Approx: 75-90 min.)
