The Flamingos - loved by fans, revered by fellow singers and enshrined forever into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as eternal proof of it all. From the time he wrote and sang lead on "Lovers Never Say Goodbye", Terry Johnson , knew he had created something transcendent. With the release of Terry's arrangement of "I Only Have Eyes for You" a year later, The Flamingos' reputation was cemented as the pre-eminent vocal group of their era. Rolling Stone Magazine even called them, "one of the, if not the, best" of the time. Billboard Magazine states "The Flamingos are hailed as one of the finest and most influential vocal groups in music history." The singles and the albums - totaling 9 national smash hits - all musically and vocally produced and some authored by Terry Johnson, just kept on coming, and even though the original group splintered when Terry left in 1962, The Flamingos live on today with Johnson's new spotlight companions, Starling Newsome, Stan Prinston and Theresa Trigg. "Nobody Loves Me Like You", "Besame Mucho", "I'll Be Home", "Mio Amore", "Begin The Beguine", and songs like "Ebb Tide" and "I Who Have Nothing" from their Diamond Anniversary CD are on the menu for this feast of timeless music and style. But the variety of their show is what is most outstanding. Songs from Barry White, contemporary songs like "Happy" , tribute to our troops and latin numbers that leave them dancing in the isles is what the following review reflects. " This has been viewed as one of the best shows we have ever offered our guests." by Tom Ducey, Asst. Director of Marketing, Atlantis Casino Resort Spa, Reno, NV.
Class personified, voices of champagne, ambassadors for romance - welcome The Flamingos to the Kate.
