Also returning to the tour for 2021 is The Association, who enjoyed massive radio success in the ’60s with number one hits including “Cherish,” “Windy,” “Never My Love” and “Along Comes Mary.”

Classics IV will join Happy Together with their southern soft rock sound. They achieved phenomenal success with multiplatinum hits “Spooky,” “Stormy,” “Traces” and Everyday With You Girl.”

Brand new to the Happy Together touring family for 2021 are The Vogues. Also known for their harmony-driven pop sound, The Vogues had numerous Top 10 hits with singles such as “Five O’Clock World,” “You’re The One,” “My Special Angel” and “Turn Around Look At Me.”

Rounding out the bill are The Cowsills, the harmonious family act of two brothers and a sister that inspired the smash hit ’60s television show, “The Patridge Family.” They will perform “Hair,” “Indian Lake,” “The Rain, The Park & Other Things (I Love The Flower Girl)” and more.
