About this show

THE LOVIN' SPOONFUL Featuring: Steve Boone Joe Butler Jerry Yester Mike Arturi Phil Smith In early 1965 as the "British invasion" dominated the American music scene, two rockers from Long Island, Steve Boone and Joe Butler, teamed up with two folkies from Greenwich Village, John Sebastian and Zal Yanovsky, to form the Lovin' Spoonful and go on to record and perform some of the songs that would dominate the charts and establish them among the greats of the mid-sixties era. Combining the best of folk music and rock and roll, with a touch of country thrown in, they gave us such hits as "Do You Believe in Magic," "Daydream," "You Didn't Have to be So Nice," "Nashville Cats" and the anthem for a hot July evening, "Summer in the City." All this in the span of 4 years and 5 albums. They toured almost constantly during this period and were one of the first rock bands to perform on college campuses almost as much as for teenage concert goers. March 6, 2000 marked a milestone for the band. They were officially inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame. SINGLES "DO YOU BELIEVE IN MAGIC?"
