New to the tour this year are JAY & THE AMERICANS and BAD FINGER. 

Headliners THE TURTLES are best known for their harmony-heavy California pop sound. With hits such as “Elenore,” “She’d Rather Be With Me,” “It Ain’t Me Babe,” “You Showed Me” and the title of the tour, “Happy Together,” the band ruled the airwaves in the late ‘60s. Ron Dante joins the line-up to delight with his own mega-hit, “Sugar Sugar”.

New to the tour in 2024 are JAY & THE AMERICANS. Formed in the late 1950’s and originally from Belle Harbor, Queens, NY, they ruled the charts in the 60’s with Top 10 AM radio hits like “Come A Little Bit Closer”, "Cara Mia”, “This Magic Moment” and “She Cried".

Returning to the tour for 2024 is THE ASSOCIATION, who enjoyed massive radio success in the ‘60s with such #1 hits as “Cherish,” “Windy,” “Never My Love” and “Along Comes Mary”. This iconic vocal group was a staple on AM radio in the 1960s.

Also new to the tour in 2024 is BAD FINGER, the Welsh rock band who are perhaps best known for their working relationship with The Beatles and George Harrison in particular. They scored 4 massive hits in the late 60’s, early 70’s with “Come and Get It”, written by Paul McCartney, “No Matter What”, “Day after Day”, produced by George Harrison and “Baby Blue”. They also performed with George Harrison in the historic “Concert for Bangladesh”.

Rounding out the bill are THE COWSILLS, the harmonious family act (two brothers and a sister) that inspired the smash hit ‘60s television show, “The Partridge Family”. They are sure to delight with their best-known songs, “Hair,” “Indian Lake,” “The Rain, The Park & Other Things (I Love The Flower Girl)” and more.
