During the mid-late 1960's the Young Rascals (later changed to the Rascals), had three #1 hits and a number of top 20 songs. Songs such as Groovin, Good Lovin, I've Been Lonely Too Long, and many more flooded the radio airways and even the Ed Sullivan Show 4 times! In June, 2013 the 4 original members visited Atlanta for their Once Upon a Dream Tour. I saw them last in 1968 at the old City Auditorium. Now Felix Cavaliere, Eddie Brigatti, Dino Danelli, and Geme Cornish can still put on a show that rocked the Cobb Energy Arena. Attached are pictures of Rochelle and I with Felix and Eddie after the show. The band members are all part of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They couldn't have been nicer people. . Enjoy the original Rascals.
 
 
The music of the 60's, played in 2013. Tony Award winning, Rock and Roll Hall of Famers, and all of the original members of the Rascals.
