Chart-topping rockers The Association, with hit songs among the most played on the radio in the 20th century, will perform for two nights at the Suncoast Showroom, November 13 and 14, each evening at 7:30 p.m.
The Association released its first album, And Then…Along Comes The Association, spawning two hit singles “Along Comes Mary” and “Cherish.” The next year in 1967 the group released two albums, Renaissance and Insight Out, the latter of which produced two No. 1 tunes, “Windy” and “Never My Love.” The group continued recording through the remainder of the 60s and into the early 70s, album titles including Birthday; Goodbye, Columbus and Stop Your Motor, among others.
Formed in the mid-60s, The Association has sold more than 80 million albums and singles, earning six gold and two platinum designations. The group has received seven Grammy nominations and in 1967 were nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Music in the film “Goodbye, Columbus.”
The Association appeared and performed in all of the major variety programs of the 60s such as The Ed Sullivan Show, The Smothers Brothers, American Bandstand, Hullabaloo, The Andy Williams Show and The Dean Martin Show, among others. Their music remained popular on television and in film in the 80s, 90s and today, setting the mood in titles such as The Wonder Years, The Sweetest Thing, Six Feet Under, Crossing Jordan and Life on Mars.
Since the 80s, The Association has toured the world, playing with many symphony orchestras, music festivals, colleges, fairs, supper clubs, hotels and conventions.
