Kewadin Casinos Sault Ste. Marie | DreamMakers Theater
Kewadin Casino Sault Ste. Marie is excited to present The Monkees celebrated by Micky Dolenz on April 21 in the DreamMakers Theater. Come remember those groovy days and the far out sounds of your favorite ’60s band, The Monkees.
Micky established himself as an entertainer at the age of 10, under the stage name of “Mickey Braddock,” starring in commercials and his first TV series, Circus Boy (1956-1958). In his early teens, Micky guest-starred on a number of television shows, including Peyton Place. At every step, he pursued an interest in singing and playing guitar. He began touring in 1957 to promote his television work and would often sing at state fairs and parades as a part of his duties. During his late teens, he recorded and performed with such combos as Micky & The 1-Knighters and the Missing Links.
In 1965, Micky auditioned for a new TV show about a rock band and was chosen from 400 applicants to join three other actor/musicians: Davy Jones, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork. The Monkees’ debut single, “Last Train to Clarksville,” featuring Micky on lead vocals, rocketed swiftly to No. 1. Two days later, The Monkees series debuted on NBC to immediate success. In 1967, the program garnered two Emmy awards for “Outstanding Comedy Series” and “Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Comedy.”
For more than four decades, Micky Dolenz has entertained us as a voice of The Monkees, a successful television director, musical director, Broadway star and so much more. In the spring of 2023, Dolenz will celebrate a new box set based around the Monkees’ third No. 1 album, Headquarters, with a special tour performing the material from the legendary long-player. Kewadin Casinos is jazzed to be one of the stops of this groovy tour.
