Legends Of Rock Live: THE MONKEES

|

In recognition of the death of performer Davy Jones of The Monkees, The Avon Theatre will present a special evening celebrating the music and fun that The Monkees brought to their fans with a Legends of Rock Live screening of THE MONKEES: RARE CLIPS (1966-1970), hosted by music archivist Bill Shelley. This program will blend song promos, ads, and live performances to create a salute to the group, with time at the end for fans to share their memories and insights. Some of the songs that will be included will be “The Monkees” the theme song for the show, “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. 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. and The Monkees’ first four albums went straight to #1 on the Billboard charts. January 31st at 7:30 p.m
