Beginning with “Woman, Woman” in 1967, Gary Puckett & The Union Gap first 5 releases went gold and he went on to sell more records in 1968 than any other recording act – including The Beatles. On the strength of “Young Girl”, “This Girl is a Woman Now”, “Lady Willpower” and “Over You”, he toured the world, performed at the White House for royalty and appeared on more than 50 television shows and specials. His 2001 PBS television appearance still airs to this day. The Vogues national acclaim began in September 1965 with the top-ten smash hits “You’re The One” and “Five O’Clock World.” The hits that followed saw the group transition from their blue-collared rock roots (as in “Magic Town”) to a more sophisticated blend of harmonies and lush orchestrations on pop-rock standards such as “My Special Angel” and the one that they recently performed on PBS television to a rousing standing ovation, “Turn Around, Look at Me.” The Vogues continue to tour all over the country in sold-out performances, but on September 28th, they’ll be right here in Dearborn. The show will open up with Motown favorites, The Shades of Blue (“Oh How Happy”).
