The Buckinghams Dazzle at Dosey Doe

Guest post by Rhonda Brinkmann (originally posted on Concert by The Buckinghams, December 13, 2015 Rating:5-stars The Buckinghams gave a dazzling performance at Dosey Doe Coffee Shop on Sunday evening. The band—known by many folks for its powerful and unforgettable hits—delivered on familiar melodies, seamless medleys, original numbers, and holiday classics. The group’s music continues to offer the energizing beat and heartfelt impact that it has been imparting for over four decades. Despite the large crowd, band members created a strong personal rapport with the audience through humor and glimpses into their touring adventures. Faces across the room reflected the impact of the memorable tunes as most people sang along or swayed with the music. From the opening strains of “Don’t You Care” to the closing chord of “Kind of a Drag,” which brought the house down, The Buckinghams kept the crowd enthralled. Carl Giammarese on vocals and guitar, and Nick Fortuna on bass

Giving Our Friends and Fans a Sneak Preview of the Happy Together Tour for 2016 (The Turtles, Chuck Negron, The Cowsills, Gary Puckett, The Spencer Davis Group, & Mark Lindsay) Will Rock Your Summer 2016

Many of you have e-mailed and posted on The Buckinghams' Facebook page, asking why The Buckinghams are not on the Happy Together Tour next summer. We just wanted to take a minute and share that The Buckinghams were honored to be invited to participate in next year's tour, but Carl and Nick decided that they would like to take a break for a year and concentrate on touring with their band for another summer to remember. Fact is that every year The Turtles vary the lineup, and select from all the great classic rock artists to keep things fresh and new for the faithful fans who come out, year after year, to hear everyone. Carl Giammarese said, "We've been extremely privileged to be on this tour 5 of the past 7 years of the Happy Together Tour's Anniversary Run, just as we were back in the 1985-1986 tour in the second year in that historic concert series." The Buckinghams band will be performing around the country this summer, so be sure and check out the websi

Concerts at Sea 2015 Photo Sent in by David Cownie

It's always nice when the friends who sail with us on Harmon Travel's Concerts at Sea cruises take the time to send in photos. Here's one our friend David Cownie took, and the message he sent with it: We sailed with you guys and Paul Revere's Raiders in January, and then saw you in Daytona. The ship was the best, because we had a chance to hear about you as individuals and as a band. Your voices are every bit what they were all those years ago, and your talent continues to grow. Hope to see y'all in the Caribbean again.
