Felix Cavaliere's Rascals
In the sixties, FELIX CAVALIERE'S RASCALS were paragons of a new genre of music that brought soul and R&B to the masses. The Rascals were masters of the energized pop-soul that was made to be blasted over radios and danced to at parties. Their first single "I Ain't Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore," was quickly followed by the number one remake of the Olympics' "Good Lovin'." In the late '60s, the band came out with a mellower sound producing chart topping hits "Groovin'" and "People Got to Be Free." The latter, a response to the assassinations of Senator Robert F. Kennedy and Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., topped the charts for five weeks and permanently tied to the Rascals' music the political turmoil of that decade. In the past 30 years, the band and its members have continued to change and evolve. In 1997, the Rascals were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Fame®, securing their place in music history. This marks Felix Cavaliere's Rascals first performance at the Hollywood Bowl.
