Teen Idols Concert
In my tour of oldies but goodies concerts this year, one I couldn't miss was the Teen Idols show at Snoqualmie Casino in August.
This brought together three 60's heart throbs--Mickey Dolenz of the Monkees, Peter Noone--Herman of Herman's Hermits and David Cassidy of the Partridge Family. All had monster hits and continue to tour separately and work in showbiz to this day.
An enthusiastic audience spanning all generations was there.
All three opened the show with a hot version of "We're Gonna Rock This House Tonight."
Then Dolenz took the stage solo to belt out his Monkees hits. A great performance with a nice tribute to Davy Jones on Daydream Believer.
Then Peter Noone kicked it into high gear with his high energy show, doing his top hits from the years of the British Invasion. He's a real crowd pleaser with loads of audience interaction, comedy and his voice is stronger than ever. He wrapped his portion with a wonderful version of "There's a Kind of Hush."
Capping the night was David Cassidy who assembled the show of Teen Idols. He performed his hits, including "I think I Love Her," and reminisced about his career.
One of the highlights was the back up band, made up of members from each star's own group. They were amazingly tight, true and on the mark, recreating the original sound behind their lead vocalists.
The show was a crowd pleaser and loads of fun.
Take a listen to my short feature that aired on KOMO radio which includes comments from each of the stars.
