SoundTracks Of A Generation presents the Summer of Love 1967 and the rock concert that changed music: The Monterey International Pop Festival. It was the high point of a catalytic year in art, fashion and music.
We’ve culled the music from the end of the year charts of Chicago’s two AM Radio powerhouses at the time, WCFL, WLS and also from Billboard Magazine’s Top 100 hits to form our playlist.
1967 was the year that debuted ‘The Doors and the release of Jefferson Airplane’s ‘Surrealistic Pillow’. It was the year that The Beatles released Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band and Magical Mystery Tour. Groups such as The Rolling Stones, The Monkees, Mamas & Papas, Buffalo Springfield and The Buckinghams were just a few of the dynamic acts that drove the music scene and we perform songs from all of those bands.
It was at the Monterey Pop Festival that iconic performances were delivered by Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Janis Joplin, and Otis Redding. We include those artists in our homage to the year.
Our 10 piece band The Summer of Love 1967 churns out the energy and captures the freshness of a new idea with some of the most iconic music ever recorded.
