The Ultimate 70s - Cancelled

The Ultimate 70s featuring Pure Prairie League, Orleans & ARS on Friday, October 8, 2021 has been cancelled.

Please contact the Box Office at boxoffice@bergenpac.org or at 201-227-1030 for more information. 


Due to the unfortunate and unexpected death in April 2021 of Rusty Young, frontman for Poco, Atlanta Rhythm Section (ARS) will replace Poco in the lineup for this performance. 

If desired, refunds can be requested at your point of purchase.


From their beginnings in mid-‘60s Ohio as a group of friends playing cover tunes to the present-day unit featuring founding member/pedal-steel innovator John David Call, veteran bassist Mike Reilly, propulsive drummer Scott Thompson and guitar ace Donnie Clark, Pure Prairie League continues to embellish the rich 43-year history of one of Country-Rock’s pioneering forces. Their eponymous first album - featuring the Norman Rockwell/Saturday Evening Post cover that introduced fans to PPL’s trademark cowpoke “Sad Luke” - has been hailed as a “major early influence in the emerging popularity of Country-Rock music.” Their second effort, the multi-platinum Bustin’ Out, delivered the Craig Fuller-penned classic “Amie,” along with other gems of the genre.

Orlean is best known as the ‘70s Pop/Rock band that brought you the iconic hits “Still the One,” “Dance With Me” and “Love Takes Time.” In the summer of 2012, Orleans experienced a tragedy in the sudden passing of co-founder Larry Hoppen. While there is no replacing Larry, the decision was made to somehow continue to perform the remaining shows of the year's calendar. Co-founder/brother Lance Hoppen, along with long-standing members Lane Hoppen, Fly Amero and Charlie Morgan were rejoined by co-founder John Hall (who had been on sabbatical as a Congressman) in order to finish with dignity and integrity what had been started 40 years prior.

Formed from the cream of Atlanta’s studio musicians, the Atlanta Rhythm Section came together in 1970 after working on a Roy Orbison recording session. Keyboardist Dean Daughtry and drummer Robert Nix had been members of Orbison's backing group, the Candymen, and Daughtry and guitarist J.R. Cobb had been members of the Top 40 hitmakers Classics IV (“Spooky,” “Stormy,” “Traces”). Rounding out the original ARS lineup were vocalist Rodney Justo, guitarist Barry Bailey, and bassist Paul Goddard. “So In To You” became the band’s breakthrough single in 1977. Their platinum follow-up album, Champagne Jam, broke into the Top 10 in 1978 with the blockbuster single “Imaginary Lover.”
