Dennis Tufano - The Original Voice Of The Buckinghams With '60s Hits "Kind Of A Drag", "Don't You Care", "Mercy Mercy Mercy", "Hey Baby" And "Susan". Talks About The British Invasion, Being On The Smothers Brothers And More!
Dennis Tufano was the original singer of The Buckinghams. In the 1960s this band had a string of hits that dominated the radio. “Kind Of A Drag”, “Don’t You Care”. “Mercy Mercy Mercy”, “Hey Baby They’re Playing Our Song” and “Susan” were a big part of the American response to the British Invasion. Dennis talks about that special time and all those hits, and we do a Songfest.
