Felix Cavaliere’s Rascals
Early Show : 7:00 PM
Late Show : 9:30 PM
The message has always been to stand for peace, love, and happiness. For legendary singer songwriter, Felix Cavaliere, making people feel good is primary to his illustrious 50-year career that includes the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Songwriter Hall of Fame, Vocal Group Hall of Fame, and GRAMMY Hall of Fame. In 1965, he formed the Young Rascals with Dino Danelli, Eddie Brigati and Gene Cornish. The group quickly caught the attention of fans, as well as Atlantic Records with their high-energy sets. Soon after changing their name to The Rascals, they struck number one on the pop charts with their mega hit, “Good Lovin’.” They followed suit with a string of hits like “I’ve Been Lonely Too Long,” “Groovin’”(which also reached number one), “How Can I Be Sure,” “A Girl Like You,” “A Beautiful Morning,” and “People Got to Be Free” (their third number one in just two years). To this day, The Rascals are considered the best ‘blue-eyed soul’ group to come out of the 1960s, as well as one of the groups with the most record sales. Few artists can claim they defined a generation, but Cavaliere continues to remind us to keep listening for the world’s beauty.
