It all started in 1965 with the breakup of one of the first folk rock ensembles called, “The Men”. What was originally an 11 member singing group, ultimately became the 6 man band named, “The Association®!” In 1967, The Association® made history being the first band anywhere to open a rock festival - the now historic, Monterey Pop Festival. One of the most successful bands to come out of the 60’s, they have sold millions of records, tapes, CDs and DVDs as well as earned a number of achievements including a Golden Globe nomination in 1970 for Best Original Song - Goodbye Columbus.
