Gary Puckett and The Union Gap Share Blockbuster Program at Historic California Theater
SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. – The revised version of one of the greatest musical duos ever will perform in San Bernardino as part of its return tour to Southern California, when the Legendary Righteous Brothers headline “The Legends of Blue-Eyed Soul and Rock ‘N’ Roll” show April 28 at the historic California Theater of the Performing Arts.
The Righteous Brothers featuring Bill Medley and Bucky Heard will be joined by special guests Gary Puckett and The Union Gap. Between them the two “blue-eyed soul” and rock and roll mega-stars repeatedly topped the Billboard charts and sold millions of records worldwide during their heyday of the 1960s and 1970s. The show begins at 7 p.m.
A regular act at Harrah’s Las Vegas, the Righteous Brothers tour features founding member Medley, one of the most iconic figures in American music history, and Heard, a distinctly popular and versatile performer in his own right who joined Medley years after original member Bobby Hatfield died in 2003.
Their signature hit, “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’,” remains the most-played song in radio history. With a string of No. 1 classics, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers topped the charts over four decades with “Soul and Inspiration,” “Unchained Melody,” “Rock and Roll Heaven” and Medley’s Grammy-winning “Dirty Dancing” theme song, “The Time of My Life,” which he recorded with Jennifer Warnes.
Gary Puckett and The Union Gap earned six consecutive gold records and sold more records in 1968 than any other recording act, including The Beatles. Puckett is one of the few artists whose first five recordings achieved gold status – something not even accomplished by Elvis Presley.
Named The Union Gap because the band performed wearing uniforms of the Civil War Union Army, Puckett’s group reached No. 4 on the Billboard charts with its first single, “Woman Woman,” in 1967. They produced two more hits that reached No. 2 on the Billboard charts, “Young Girl” and “Lady Willpower,” followed by “Over You,” (No. 7) and “Don’t Give in to Him” (No. 15).
