Formed in the mid-1960s, The Lovin’ Spoonful emerged at the height of the “British invasion” in the American music scene. Five decades later, the group still tours and makes a stop at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe on Saturday, Oct. 22.
“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-’60s era,” states the band’s online biography.
While Yanovsky and Sebastian have since left the band and been replaced, the band took a break from producing music in the ‘70s and ‘80s before reforming in the ‘90s.
Known for their blend of folk and rock ‘n’ roll, The Lovin’ Spoonful was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in March 2000. The band is known for songs including “Darlin’ Be Home Soon,” “Six O-Clock” and “She’s Still A Mystery To Me.”
“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,’” according to the biography.
Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. concert start at $32.10, plus tax and fees.
Harrah’s Lake Tahoe is located at 18 U.S. 50 in Stateline.
