Mount Pocono, PA – Mount Airy Casino Resort will welcome American pop rock band and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees The Lovin’ Spoonful, to Gypsies Lounge and Nightclub Saturday, January 8 at 9:00pm. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased in advance at mountairycasino.com or by calling 1-866-468-7619.
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. Together they went on to record and perform some of the songs that would dominate the charts and establish them among the greats in 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 four years and five albums! In addition to that they also wrote and performed two soundtrack albums for two directors very early in their careers, Woody Allen “What’s Up Tigerlily” and Francis Ford Coppola “You’re a Big Boy Now.” They toured almost constantly during this period and were one of the first rock bands to perform on college campuses.
In 1991 a long awaited settlement with their record company inspired Joe and Steve to contact Jerry and start up the Lovin’ Spoonful again. After a two month rehearsal in the Berkshire Mts., the group started touring anew, visiting over 150 cities and countries worldwide and reaching out to a whole new audience in addition to those that have enjoyed their music over the years.
“We are pleased to welcome the Lovin’ Spoonful to Mount Airy Casino Resort for a night filled with folk and rock and roll music,” said John Culetsu, Executive Vice President and General Manager. “With our recent AAA Four-Diamond award, we are continuing to exceed expectations in offering our guests an absolutely incomparable casino gaming experience, breath-taking scenery, golf course, fine dining in our five restaurants and state-of-the-art spa and resort accommodations,” added Culetsu.
