Congratulating Dick Biondi for Chicago Naming Dick Biondi Way in His Honor

On behalf of The Buckinghams, we would like to congratulate Dick Biondi. June 29 is the date for the dedication of "Dick Biondi Way." We can't think of anyone who deserves the honor of having a street named after him more than Dick. You have helped so many in the music business, including The Buckinghams. We will all be there to honor you.

We love you Dick--always your friends, Carl and Nick

Happy Together Tour 25th Anniversary Part 1

The First leg of The Happy Together Tour 25th anniversary just ended, and I must say it went by quickly. Nick and I are very proud to be a part of it, once again being reunited with The Turtles Mark and Howard, man those guys are funny! and Rob Grill of The Grass Roots. As you know the one and only Micky Dolenz and the talented Mark Lindsay also joined us on the tour. They are both good people and very talented entertainers, it was a pleasure to get to know them better. Every one of them brings something special to the show.

I had the opportunity to sit back and watch the performance one night, and they are all so incredibly talented and entertaining. I want to mention our fantastic band, Godfrey Townsend, Steve Murphy, Manny Focarazzo and John Montagna, we are fortunate to have such gifted musicians playing with us, they add tremendous authenticity to the entire show. Kudos to our tour/production manager, Ron Hausfeld, who runs a tight ship and keeps the entire tour running smoothly. Thank you to the great crew we have, especially Jason and Earl; couldn't do it without them. And last but not least, thank you to our dedicated fans who continue to come out and support us. There would be no tour without you.

Nick and I can't wait until part 2 starts July 20, you will be hearing a lot about it as the dates play.
