This past month Peter Tork passed away - so it's time to celebrate the group that brought us so much joy and so many great songs, of which he was an integral part.
Maybe you know The Monkees from their delightfully goofy, oft-syndicated tv show.
Maybe you’ve heard a couple catchy Monkees tunes at the movies, but have never considered their larger body of work.
Or, maybe you’ve come to realize that behind this seemingly frivolous knock-off of Hard Day’s Night era Beatles lurks pure songwriting excellence.
Tributosaurus happily delves into all of that goodness, as we become The Monkees on Wednesday April 3rd at Martyrs, and on Friday April 5th at Wire.
Seriously! Do you realize who was behind these consistently top notch songs? Some of the best American songwriters of the time, or any time. Carole King and Gerry Goffin. Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil. Neil Diamond. Boyce and Hart. Then, the band themselves took over and churned out some wonderfully odd and unique tunes.
Tributosaurus will give you the very best of the catalog. Daydream Believer, Stepping Stone, Pleasant Valley Sunday, the iconic TV theme, and so many more. Plus, we'll dig into the odd and catchy later era stuff Mike Nesmith, Davy Jones, Peter Tork, and Mickey Dolenz wrote themselves. You’ll hear songs you love, and maybe learn some new ones too.
Two chances to join us in celebration and performance of a uniquely American phenomenon, that sold more records than The Beatles and The Rolling Stones COMBINED in 1967.
We like to Monkee around!
