Gary Puckett & The Union Gap – Our First Concert

My first date with my wife Rosemary was a concert ;). Ironic isn’t it.  It took place in the spring of 1969 in my high school gym at Brien McMahon High School in Norwalk, Connecticut.

The concert featured Johnny Maestro and the Brooklyn Bridge as the opening act. They had a hit in 1969 with the song “Worse That Could Happen“, written by Jimmy Webb (who we just saw this past week at Stage One in Fairfield, Ct, where he sang this song!).

Gary Puckett & The Union Gap were the headliners. The concert was a sell out. Gary Puckett & The Union Gap wore their civil war uniforms just like they did on the cover of the Lady Willpower 45 sleeve.

We’ve attended over 400+ concerts since in 42+ years. We look forward to our 22nd concert of 2011 at The Wolf Den at Mohegan Sun featuring Gary Puckett on August 11, 2011.

  1. I went to a concert at the Detroit Opera House in 2007, when Johnny Maestro and The Brooklyn Bridge were the headliners. Gary Puckett was one of the opening acts. Johnny and Gary sang a duet of The Righteous Brothers’ big hit “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin'”. A great concert memory, especially since Johnny passed away last year.
