Stars of the Sixties return to the Riviera… Lighting Lou Christie will strike with all the hits that propelled him to the top of the charts again and again in the 60s, including “Two Faces Have I”, “I’m Gonna Make You Mine”, “The Gypsy Cried”, “Rhapsody in the Rain” and, of course, “Lightning Strikes.” Plus… The Happenings’ original lead singer Bob Miranda (“See You in September”, “I Got Rhythm” and “Go Away, Little Girl”) and Dennis Tufano, original lead singer of the Buckinghams are both back by popular demand (“Kind of a Drag”, “Hey Baby! They’re Playing Our Song”, “Don’t You Care”, “Susan”, “Mercy, Mercy, Mercy”).

Don’t miss this one-night-only reunion of rock and roll stars of the sixties!
Presented by Scotty Productions & Pop, Rock & Doo Wopp
