For a limited time in April, The Rascals will reunite to perform at the Richard Rodgers Theater on Broadway, the New York Times reports.
“If you picture those days [ the ’60s], most white artists just stood there and played. Elvis Presley was an exception, Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones were an exception. But most white artists stood there and performed and that was fine. Most of the black artists, they were real performers, very exciting, and The Rascals performed like a black band. They were the first ‘blue-eyed soul’ band, which was very influential to us.”
