Re-live the pops hits of the ‘60s with The Cowsills at The Ridgefield Playhouse on January 31
The_Cowsills_5.jpg
The Ridgefield Playhouse and Pepsi Rock Series Powered by Xfinity bring the ‘60s pop band The Cowsills to the stage on Sunday, January 31 at 8 p.m. Best known for songs ”The Rain, The Park and Other Things,” “Hair,” “Indian Lake” and “Love American Style” - the Cowsill's soaring harmonies reached the top of the charts in the late 1960s. Comprised of a family of musically gifted children and their talented mom, the group was an entertainment phenomenon, appearing on the top variety series of the day including The Ed Sullivan Show, Johnny Carson and The Dean Martin Show and influencing a generation of musicians and artists. They were approached to do a TV series but the producers had already signed an actress to play the mother on the series so it was a no go for The Cowsills. What was the series? It was The Partridge Family! The Cowsills were also spokespersons for the American Dairy Association and appeared in commercials and print ads for milk. The Cowsills disbanded in the early 1970s but most of them have never really left the music business and various members have regrouped through the years. Before the show, visit Bailey’s Backyard (23 Bailey Avenue, Ridgefield) for dinner and receive 10% off when you show your ticket. Media sponsor is The B 107.3fm.
