Get groovy with Bill Shelley and travel back in time to “The Summer of Love” in 1967 that brought us Flower Power.

1967 had a wide range of sounds that included The Beatles’ concept album Sergeant Pepper (which became a best-selling album), The Jefferson Airplane, The Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, The Doors, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, the Mamas and the Papas (among the organizers and performers of the first rock festival, The Monterey Pop Festival), Ravi Shankar (also at The Monterey Pop Festival), Otis Redding, Santana, and The Monkees. Along with this incredible creativity in the arts, 1967 brought Flower Power, the Hippie philosophy of “make love not war,” and psychedelia into pop culture. Music, fashions, and plots in movies, and television were all influenced. Among the songs that will be featured in this 50th anniversary celebration of The Summer of Love will be “White Rabbit,” “Purple Haze,” “Groovin,’ “A Whiter Shade of Pale,” and “[If You’re Goin’ to] San Francisco [Be Sure to Wear Some Flowers in Your Hair].” Approx. 110 minutes
