Nevada Fans Want Them Back!

Marquee in Laughlin, NV 2014The Nevada Fans were PHENOMINAL!  The Flamingos thank all of the fans for a very successful 6 night run at the beautiful Riverside Casino in Laughlin Nevada.  The showroom was fabulous and the crew were incredibly professional and loads of fun to work with.  They will be back later in the year 2014 or early next year 2015.

New Project for Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation

Joel Peresman, President and CEO of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, contacted Terry and sent a special camera crew to Ft. Lauderdale for this historic project. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has been doing a deep and significant oral history project for the Hall of Fame’s Library & Archives over the past year to get the story of rock and roll told through the inductees that created it. They are planning to use it at the Library and Museum for research, study and use by scholars and other interested parties. The Foundation was particularly interested in Johnson’s widely spanned career as a writer, producer, arranger and lead singer with his own group The Whispers, followed by his success as musical & vocal arranger and one of 4 lead vocalist for The Flamingos, giving them their first cross over hit as well as being responsible for the arrangement of their biggest hit, “I Only Have Eyes For You”, followed by his success as a Motown writer and producer with Smokey Robinson as his partner and his continued success as a recording artist, producer, arranger and showman with his touring group, the 2013 version of The Flamingos.

They have completed around 50 of these so far some of which have included: Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, Bobby Blue Bland, Allen Toussaint, Buddy Guy, Wanda Jackson, Mary Wilson, Frankie Valli, Al Bell, Steve Cropper, Duane Eddy, Otis Williams, Jerry Moss, Jac Holzman, Ronnie Hawkins, Little Anthony, Smokey Robinson, DukeFakir, Fred Cash, Sam Gooden, Martha Reeves, Hal Blaine, Glyn Johns, Ben E King, Steve Cropper, Jac Holzman, Clive Davis, Booker T Jones, Michelle Phillips, and many more. Plus they have commitments to do these from John Mellencamp, Iggy Pop, Patti Smith, Debbie Harry and others.

The Flamingos’ European Tour

The radio airplay response has been so tremendous overseas that it has sparked a European tour for The Flamingos.  The Diamond Anniversary Tour CD is selling in Italy, Germany, UK, Australia, Japan, just to name a few and the fans in these countries could not be more supportive.   Remembering the 2010 Japan shows, Terry said  he couldn’t believe how many young fans were carrying the album Flamingo’ Serenade for him to sign after the shows.  Terry also said,  “I love coming over here to see that the music is appreciated all over the world,  and I remember when we sang to them in Japanese, they started crying.  I was really surprised, but yet honored that they appreciated the many hours/days of rehearsal that it took to sing in their language.  Can’t wait to go back.”

Those of you who haven’t heard the Diamond Anniversary CD,  please click the link below to hear some audio samples. If you purchase the CD, a percentage of the proceeds go to the USO to support our troops and their families.

New Album: Diamond Anniversary Tour 2013

The Terry Johnson’ sound, or as most in the business know him “Buzzy”, is a very recognizable ethereal mix of lush harmonies and beautifully orchestrated music.  At Motown Records, as a writing & producing partner with Smokey Robinson, his music was recorded by  The  Miracles, winning him a BMI Award for “Baby Baby Don’t Cry” and a top 10 hit “Here I Go Again”.  He also wrote and produced songs for such great artists as The Temptations, The Four Tops, The Supremes, Edwin Star, Martha Reeves, The Marvelettes and David Ruffin.  Throughout his 60 years career as a writer, arranger, producer and performer, Terry has continued to be inspired and influenced by musical industry giants like Nat King Cole, Sammy Davis Jr., Sam Cooke, Lambert, Hendricks and Ross, Wes Montgomery, George Benson, Manhattan Transfer, Marvin Gaye, The Philly Sound, Barbara Streisand, Frank Sinatra, Barry Manilow, Burt Bacharach, Bionce’, Michael Jackson, Clive Davis, David Foster and Tony Bennett.  Staying true to the signature sound that he produced for The Flamingos with his Grammy Hall of Fame Award winning arrangement of  “I Only Have Eyes For You”, and the critically acclaimed album “Flamingo Serenade”,  Terry has progressed The Flamingos’ legacy on this their “Diamond Anniversary Tour” CD.

This CD will take your mind and your heart on a romantic musical journey, that will re-confirm to your ears that The Flamingos are still and will always be “The Ambassadors For Romance.”
