Gary Lewis & The Playboys and Mitch Ryder- The Diamond Ring and The Devil Tour
November 04, 2023 at 8:00 PM
Gary Lewis and The Playboys and Mitch Ryder and The Detroit Wheels make their Peekskill debut this November!
Gary Lewis was about as close to being an “overnight success” in the recording field as anyone can get. And – just because it happens so seldom – it is always a special thrill when show business lightning strikes twice in the same family. The comedy antics of Jerry Lewis skyrocketed him to fame when he was just barely out of his teens. No. 1 son Gary had achieved comparable success in the music field.
With the producer/arranger team of Garrett and Leon Russell behind them, they took their first single, “This Diamond Ring” straight to number one. After their second hit titled “Count Me In” went to number two, Gary and the band proved that they would be a continued success. They followed with more Top 10 songs such as “Save Your Heart For Me”, “Everybody Loves A Clown”, “She’s Just My Style”, “Sure
Gonna Miss Her”, and many more!
With 8 Gold Singles, 17 top 40 hits, 45 million records sold worldwide, Gary Lewis and The Playboys bring a fantasticly fun evening to anywhere they perform!
Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels had their first big hit in 1965 with “Jenny Take a Ride”, which reached No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, and No. 1 on the R&B chart – the first time a self-contained rock group had achieved the latter distinction. It sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc by the RIAA. Ryder created hits such as, “Devil with a Blue Dress,” and ‘Sock It To Me Baby’ with the Detroit Wheels. His solo hits include, “What Now My Love,” and “When You Were Mine.”
Don’t miss an amazing evening with two great groups!
