Gary Lewis & the Playboys

 Friday, June 21, 2019 
8:15pm-10:00pm  
Hoover Auditorium

Reaching overnight success in the 1960s, Gary Lewis & the Playboys will share their popular hits with Lakesiders.

Son of the famed comedian Jerry Lewis, Gary Lewis earned Cash Box Magazine’s Male Vocalist of the Year Award in 1965 over artists like Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra. He was the only artist in the 1960s to have his first seven releases reach Billboard Magazine’s Top 10 on the Hot 100 Chart.

He didn’t face the usual problem that children of celebrities face in finding their own identities. When Lewis embarked on his music career with an audition at Disneyland, the entertainment director had no idea who his father was – he merely liked what he saw on stage. He hired Gary Lewis & the Playboys on spot.

Before long, they were playing for a packed house every night. In the summer of 1964, the group was discovered by a producer. Their first single “This Diamond Ring,” went straight to No. 1, and a string of hits followed.

Today, Gary Lewis & the Playboys continue to tour and entertain fans across the world with nostalgic hits.
