Think about this, our favorite music from the 1960s is now over 50 years old - it doesn't take a degree in math to know what that means for the people that made all that music. As you can imagine, it is getting more and more difficult to find those artists who are willing and able to still perform those great songs. Knowing that is what makes the Happy Together Tour so amazing.

For the 14th year in a row, the Happy Together Tour has put together a lineup of talented musicians from the 1960s that still sound amazing more than half a century after making this music.

Let's take a look at the lineup of artists on the 2023 tour.

The Turtles

The Turtles are best known for their harmony-heavy California pop sound, which you can hear on hits such as “Elenore,” “She’d Rather Be With Me,” “It Ain’t Me Babe,” “You Showed Me” and the title of the tour, “Happy Together."

Little Anthony

Don't let the name fool you, Little Anthony still has a big voice that is able to belt out the huge from the last 60 years. The Rock & Roll Hall of Famer is responsible for some of the most iconic songs ever written, including “Goin’ Out of My Head”, “Hurts So Bad”, “Tears on My Pillow”, “I’m On The Outside (Looking In)” and “Shimmy, Shimmy, Ko-Ko-Bop”.

Gary Puckett & the Union Gap

Talk about voices...Gary Puckett has one of the best voices from the 60s or any decade. Even the most casual fan will instantly recognize his voice on songs like remember “Young Girl,” “Over You,” “Woman, Woman,” “This Girl Is A Woman Now,” “Lady Willpower” and “Don’t Give In To Him.”

The Vogues

The Vogues is another group known for their harmony-driven soaring pop sound. They had several Top 10 hits with singles such as “Five O’Clock World”, “You’re The One,” “My Special Angel” and “Turn Around Look At Me,” among others.

The Classics IV

The Classics IV is one of the most popular and influential pop groups of the 60s and 70s. They achieved phenomenal success with multiplatinum hits “Spooky,” “Stormy,” “Traces,” and “Everyday With You Girl.”

The Cowsills
