Boxtops To Close Season At Pavillion

Fri., Aug. 1, 1997

The Summertime Music Festival at the new Pavillion Park Amphitheater at Liberty Lake will end its run with a performance by The Boxtops on Saturday night.

Group members, none of whom were members of the original band, will be performing the hits of the original Boxtops, a group that logged several hits before disbanding in 1970. One of those hits was “The Letter,” which was record of the year in 1967 and spent four weeks as No. 1.

Other songs in the performance will include “Cry Like a Baby,” “Neon Rainbow,” “I Met Her in Church,” “Sweet Cream Ladies” and “She Shot a Hole in My Sole.”

During their three years of fame, the original Boxtops notched eight Top 40 hits and several others made it into the top 100. Billed as the first blue-eyed soul group, limited tour dates and the departure of a few of the musicians led to the group’s early demise.

Loose Change will open for The Boxtops at 6 p.m. The concert is free.

To get to the pavilion, take the Liberty Lake exit off I-90, head south and follow the signs.
