Orchestral Events presents beloved classic rock artists The Buckinghams & Gary Puckett, in an all-new concert concept for their hit songs that Chicagoland will be first to hear. Conductor/Arranger Mariano Longo brings these artists and their bands together for an evening that will celebrate the songs you fell in love to, with a 22-piece symphony orchestra for a night of the pops!

Ensemble production numbers highlighting the hits of a generation, you’ll love these artists performing “River Deep, Mountain High” (Tina Turner/The Animals), “Touch Me” (The Doors), “Working’ My Way Back to You” (Four Seasons), “He Ain’t Heavy— He’s My Brother (The Hollies), “Everybody Get Together” (The Youngbloods), “ “Let’s Hang On” (Four Seasons), and more.

It’s a new variety concept show that brings the rich sounds of a full symphony orchestra with upbeat arrangements of even more songs you have loved all your life, to share that evening with family and friends you love. It’s a perfect Valentine’s Night!

Yes, it’s The Buckinghams and Gary Puckett singing all their hits, too, but the orchestral arrangements of all their hits will blow you away. Conductor Mariano Longo says, “There’s a formal full orchestra together with your favorite artists, BUT no formal wear or black ties required; just dress as you would for any concert and get ready to say, “WOW, I have never heard anything like this before!” So, you can surprise your Valentine or just treat yourself to an unforgettable evening of “Groovin to The 60s”!
