Why Seventies Soft Rock? “The radio was the soundtrack to the 1970s, the era in which I grew up.”

“Not every radio had FM capabilities, especially in cars. The AM dial was played in stores and restaurants and in the Country Squire Station Wagon that I rode in, sans seat belts. I absorbed these songs and they are a part of me. A few lines of ‘Rocket Man’ and I’m taken back to a time of polyester, bell bottoms and Evel Knievel.”

“We are always shocked at how the audience seems to know all the words to every song in our playlist. To hear the crowd sing “even though we ain’t got money, I’m so in love with you honey” or “give me the beat boys and free my soul, I wanna get lost in your Rock n’ Roll and drift away” is magical. It’s like a big campfire sing-along, K-Tel style!” -Tony Starlight

What started as a monthly Neil Diamond Tribute has grown into a soft rock explosion! Tony Starlight makes an evening out of performing songs from the stalwarts of the AM dial in the 1970s. Artists like Elton John, Neil Diamond, Carol King, Jim Croce, Little River Band, Carly Simon, Gordon Lightfoot, Paul Simon, Barry Manilow and Billy Joel. One hit wonders like “Brandy (You’re A Fine Girl)”, “Dancin’ In The Moonlight”, “Welcome Back”, “Seasons In The Sun” and much, much more.

    I’m going with Piano Man– it’s just so singalong perfect. I’ve never been to the Tony Starlight show and would love to take my girl friend– she got dumped! And she’s in the mood for a melody.

    I definitely have to be at this! I love “decades music” and decades themed parties. Favorites being 40s, 50s, 70s, and 90s with 70s as the most fun. I’d love to surprise my boyfriend with these tickets and finally have a fun night out dancing and dining to our favorite songs. :D

    I’m with you Tony. I miss the A/M Gold radio show that XRAY used to play on a weekday morning that I had to make my own Pandora station. Seals and Crofts baby!

    I graduated high school in 1971, so this is definitely my era. I love all the songs but will go with Rocket Man. Would love to go to this

    American Pie… mostly about the turmoil of the 60’s. Will we have a new song like it for our current national turmoil?
