Travel Back to The '60s tonight for an evening of bubblegum rock at B.B. King Blues Club. Tonight's show will feature performances by Ron Dante, The 1910 Fruitgum Company, and special guest Joey Levine.

Ron Dante is best known as the lead singer for the fictional cartoon band The Archies, as well as the one-hit-wonder group The Cuff Links. "Sugar, Sugar," The Archies' best-loved song, topped the Top 40 charts for weeks and was voted Song of The Year in 1969. "Tracy," The Cuff Links' biggest hit, stormed the charts just as the popularity of "Sugar, Sugar" began to fade. In addition to his vocal work, Dante has also served as a producer for Barry Manilow, Cher, Dionne Warwick, Pat Benatar, Irene Cara, Ray Charles, John Denver, and other major recording artists.

The 1910 Fruitgum Company virtually exploded onto the national music scene in 1968 with its first single "Simon Says." The song quickly ascended the charts, and the album of the same name reached No. 2 in the U.S. and topped charts in the United Kingdom. The band followed up this initial success with another smash hit record, 1-2-3 Red Light (1968). By the time it released the Gold-certified record Indian Giver (1969), The 1910 Fruitgum Company had amassed a treasure trove of prototypical bubblegum rock to its now-legendary name.

If a single voice were most closely associated with bubblegum music, that voice belongs to Joey Levine. He was responsible for writing and singing many of the classic songs that defined the bubblegum music era of the late '60s and early '70s and worked extensively with The Ohio Express. Among his quintessential hits are "Yummy, Yummy, Yummy," "Down at Lulu's," and "Chewy Chewy."
