Clarksburg, WV – The Robinson Grand Performing Arts Center, in partnership with Pennsylvania based Spotlight Productions is bringing Gary Puckett and the Union Gap with special guests The Vogues to downtown Clarksburg on Sunday, October 15, 2023, at the historic Robinson Grand Performing Arts Center located at 444 W. Pike St. in Clarksburg, WV.
Beginning with “Woman, Woman” in 1967, Gary Puckett and the Union Gap’s first five releases went gold, and he went on to sell more records in 1968 than any other recording artist (including The Beatles) on the strength of “Young Girl,” “This Girl’s A Woman Now,” “Lady Willpower,” and “Over You.”
Puckett has toured the world, performed at the White House and for Royalty, and appeared on more than 50 television shows and specials.
“Having Gary Puckett at the Robinson Grand is welcoming some legendary nostalgia to our stage,” said Jason A Young, the Robinson Grand’s program manager. “We’re excited for a Sunday afternoon filled with golden oldies.”
From the mid 1960’s into the 70’s The Vogues could be heard coast to coast. They have been featured on the top television shows of the time: including The Ed Sullivan Show, The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, Mike Douglas Show, and Dick Clark’s iconic American Bandstand.
The Vogues captured the heart of the teens of the 60’s with their lush harmonies on hits such as “You’re The One,” “Five O’Clock World,” “My Special Angel,” “Turn Around and Look At Me,” “Till,” and “Magic Town.”
“Truly, Gary Puckett and the Union Gap would have been enough for a great show,” said Young. “But, you throw in The Vogues and now you’ve got something really special on your hands.”
Tickets for Gary Puckett and the Union Gap with The Vogues start at only $46, and go on sale on Monday, May 15, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. All tickets can be purchased online at tickets.therobinsongrand.com or by calling the Robinson Grand ticketing center at (855) 773-6283.
