Music stars highlighting Chautauqua


Armiger’s debut album reached the top 10 on the Country Billboard Charts and featured 14 tracks written by the artist. Armiger has performed at the Grand Ole Opry and has been an opening act for country music stars such as Darius Rucker and Brad Paisley.

Katie Armiger may soon become a staple of radio, though her Chautauqua co-performer Terry “Buzzy” Johnson has been there for decades. Johnson was the lead singer of the Flamingos, famous for their ‘50s hit, “I Only Have Eyes for You.” Johnson’s career has been spent in the presence of Motown legends such as Smokey Robinson and The Temptations. Johnson and the Flamingos also made numerous appearances on American Bandstand and were awarded the prestigious Rhythm and Blues Foundation’s Pioneer Award in 1996.

“Buzzy” will be joined at the GCHS auditorium by the lead singer of the popular ‘80s group The BusBoys. That group, led by Brian O’Neal, found their biggest hit with “The Boys Are Back in Town,” which was used in 48 Hours starring Eddie Murphy and Nick Nolte. O’Neal and his group also added a track to 1984’s Ghostbusters soundtrack and spent much of the early ‘80s touring with Murphy, which included being a part of the comedian’s famed “Delirious” comedy concert tour.

Following up any of those acts might be difficult for a performer of lesser caliber than Nancy Nevins, but the former front-woman of Sweetwater may well be up to the task. After all, Nevins and her group were the first individuals to perform at the original Woodstock concert in 1969. Sweetwater once toured with the Doors and is perhaps best known for their hit, “Motherless Child.”

Another famous band of yesteryear, Orleans, made a name for itself in the 1970s with songs such as “Still the One” and “Dance with Me.” The group’s bass player, Lance Hoppen, is scheduled to appear at the Chautauqua concert performing some of his original works.
