Where can you hear songs by Three Dog Night, the Police, the Platters, James Taylor, McFadden & Whitehead, Gene Pitney and Prince?
Well, you could spin the radio dial back and forth, from oldies to classic rock to r stations. But a better option would be going to Interlochens Corson Auditorium this Friday, Jan. 14, where the Nylons will be wrapping the above and more in their inimitable four-part harmonies. Claude Morrison, the lone remaining original member, says the group is sounding better than ever.
There was a period in the early 90s where one member had died (the angelic-voiced Marc Connors, who passed away from AIDS-related cancer) and one left (Paul Cooper). It wasnt the apex.
But at a crucial point Garth (current member Garth Mosbaugh) and Gavin Hope joined. After three or four years Gavin went off to do major musicals, then we got Mark Cassius, whod just finished major musicals. He was feeling a need for change.
That was seven-plus years ago. But according to Morrison, We still refer to him (Cassius) as the New Guy.
