It will be summer in the city when The Lovin’ Spoonful comes to town.

The band, which began in Greenwich Village in 1965, was an integral part of the folk-rock movement and influenced many groups of the era. Beginning with their debut single, “Do You Believe in Magic,” The Lovin’ Spoonful had seven consecutive singles reach the Top Ten in the 18 months that followed. They included “Daydream,” “Did You Ever Have to Make Up Your Mind?” “You Didn’t Have to Be So Nice,” “Younger Girl,” “Darling Be Home Soon,” “Nashville Cats,” the wistful “Rain on the Roof,” and the chart-topping song that defined a season, “Summer in the City.”

John Lennon called The Lovin’ Spoonful “tunesmiths,” and the band was so influential that musicians like Paul McCartney and Brain Wilson called them sources of inspiration. They appeared on every major television show of the era, including The Ed Sullivan Show, Hullabaloo and Shindig. The group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000.

Today, The Lovin’ Spoonful tours with founding member Steve Boone, alongside Jeff Alan Ross, Bill Cinque, Rob Bonfiglio, and Mike Arturi. Together, they faithfully celebrate the rich, good-time catalogue of hits that made them one of the world’s most beloved groups of the ‘60s.
