Felix Cavaliere’s Rascals

The information below is from the 2019 Fair, and it will give you an idea of what to expect in 2020. Please check back soon!

The message has always been to stand for peace, love, and happiness. For legendary singer-songwriter Felix Cavaliere, making people feel good is primary to his illustrious career of more than 50 years that includes the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Songwriter Hall of Fame, Vocal Group Hall of Fame, and Grammy Hall of Fame. Few artists can claim they defined a generation; Felix Cavaliere continues to remind us to keep listening for the world’s beauty.

Early in 1965, Cavaliere formed the ‘Young Rascals’ with Dino Danelli, Eddie Brigati, and Gene Cornish. That October, they caught the attention of promoter/manager Sid Bernstein with their high-energy set at Long Island’s elite club, Barge.

Signed to Atlantic Records, and now called The Rascals, the megahit “Good Lovin’” struck No. 1 in February 1966. They followed suit with a string of hits including “I’ve Been Lonely Too Long,” “Groovin’” (No. 1 in 1967), “How Can I Be Sure,” “A Girl Like You,” “A Beautiful Morning,” and “People Got to Be Free” (No. 1 in 1968). The Rascals are considered the best “blue-eyed soul” group to come out of the 1960s, as well as one of the groups with the most record sales.

Cavaliere calls Nashville home base, where he is constantly collaborating and writing new material. He’s also finishing his memoir and has an active tour schedule.
