50 Summers of Love celebrates the anniversary of a time when peace, love and music filled the air and flowers were in everybody’s hair. Two of the original voices of that idyllic era -- Micky Dolenz (The Monkees) and Mark Lindsay (Paul Revere and The Raiders) join forces with Beatles tribute band The Fab Four for an evening of music and memories fifty years in the making.
Micky Dolenz IS the voice of The Monkees. The unmistakable performer that moved a generation and led this pop culture phenomena to a dozen Top 20 singles, four #1 albums and two Emmy Awards. Having entertained audiences his entire life, Micky brings a one-of-a-kind presence to the stage, drawing on his background in television, film broadcasting and Broadway.
Mark Lindsay's professional singing career began as the fifteen-year-old rockabilly vocalist in an Idaho country group known as Freddy Chapman and the Idaho Playboys. Freddy was a DJ at the country station KFXD out of Nampa, Idaho and recruited Mark after hearing about a "real talented kid" who had just won a local talent contest.
A year later, when Freddy's radio career took him out of the area, Mark heard about a band that was playing at the local IOOF Hall. They were so new that they didn't even have a name yet. He took off his thick glasses, walked up to the stage, and asked to sing a song -- "Crazy Arms". Overcome with shyness, he ran off the stage after his performance.
This was the start of "Paul Revere & The Raiders". By 1963 Paul Revere & the Raiders, dressed in their Revolutionary war uniforms and Mark with his pony tail, became one of the most popular bands in the country. As Mark's profile was showcased on the cover of many prominent magazines, his popularity as a teen idol was becoming legendary.
In 1965, Paul Revere and the Raiders were one of the featured performers of the immensely popular 5-day a week ABC Television music show "Where The Action Is". The Raiders owned the 1966 charts with hits like "Just Like Me", "Kicks", "Hungry", and “Good Thing", which Mark also wrote.
Between ‘67-’71 they had 14 top 40 hits including their number one hit “Indian Reservation”. The Raiders appeared as guests on several hundred network programs, including the Johnny Carson, Jack Benny, Ed Sullivan, Smothers Brothers, Lucille Ball, Glen Campbell, and Red Skelton Shows.
In 1969, Mark expressed an interest in producing fellow Raider Freddy Weller, and the result was the debut of Freddy's country career on Columbia Records. Mark produced several singles and albums for Freddy, including the hit "Games People Play".
Mark was a solo star at the same time he was in one of Americas number one Rock n’ Roll bands. In 1970 he went solo with a pair of top 40 hits "Arizona" and "Silver Bird" as well as 3 best-selling albums. Mark Lindsay has sold over 50 million records ...
In 1974, Mark left the Raiders, and began a career that kept him "behind the scenes" for several years. As head of A & R for United Artists Records, he continued to demonstrate his remarkable musical ability. He was instrumental in the success of Jerry Rafferty's smash single "Baker Street"; numerous Kenny Rogers hit singles, and many other prominent tunes. He ha been a guest on TV shows “Married with Children” and "The Oprah Winfrey Show”. See Mark Lindsay in the TEEN IDOLS show, on-stage for the first time with Peter Noone of Herman Hermit's and Micky Dolenz of the Monkees.
