Spoonful by Spoonful with Mike Arturi:
The Ingredients of Greatness and Why the Music of the Lovin’ Spoonful is so Important
Monday, March 11, 10:30 AM
St. Charles Public Library
On Monday, March 11, at 10:30 AM, Mike Arturi will visit the St. Charles Public Library during Coffee & Conversation.
From his unique perspective as long-time drummer for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band, the Lovin’ Spoonful, Arturi will present an audio visual presentation illustrating the importance of the band and the role they played in bringing American born music styles to the forefront of awareness in the mid-1960s. Discover the diverse musical influences of each member, the bands prominence in the mid-60s and their high ranking influence on international record charts and why the Lovin’ Spoonful’s first seven releases were top ten hits consecutively! Arturi will chronicle the origins of the band from its inception and how the diverse musical influences of each band member came together to create a completely new sound which came to be commonly known as Folk Rock. Personal perspectives and narratives from his three decades with the band will also be shared.
Arturi’s visit to the St. Charles Public Library is part of the weekly Coffee & Conversation program. Looking for something to do on a Monday morning?
