Milford, CT - In the sixties, The Monkees captured the hearts of millions. They sold more records than The Beatles & The Rolling Stones in 1967. The Monkees had such hits as "(Theme From) The Monkees," "Last Train to Clarksville," "I'm a Believer," "(I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone," "Pleasant Valley Sunday," "Valleri" and "Daydream Believer." Their albums and singles have sold over 65 million copies worldwide, and the band was a pop-culture phenomenon, with songs that have stood the test of time.

They reunited through the years and toured occasionally from 1986 through 2011. On February 29, 2012, Davy Jones of The Monkees passed away. Up until Jones' death, the Monkees had been one of the few remaining major pop groups from the 1960s with all its members still alive. Their greatest hits CD, "The Best of The Monkees," just re-entered the Billboard Top 200 chart at number 20.

On Friday night, March 30, in tribute to Davy Jones, Liverpool Productions will be presenting "An Evening of Monkees Memories" at Aldario's Restaurant, 240 Naugatuck Avenue in Milford, CT. The event is open to all ages and doors open at 7pm.

"An Evening of Monkees Memories" features the New Jersey pop-rock band "The Characters." The Characters were a backing band not only for Davy Jones, but also for Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork, and they appeared in The Monkees' video for their song "Heart and Soul." They will be headlining the evening with a full set of the Monkees' hits, along with a second set of favorites from the Monkees' era. There will also be trivia, giveaways and DJ entertainment by Charles F. Rosenay!!!

Charles F. Rosenay!!!'s Liverpool Productions, organizers of the event, not only presented Beatles Conventions in Connecticut for four decades, but also produced Monkees Convention in the state in the 80s. Peter Tork was a special guest at two conventions, and Davy Jones was the special guest of honor at one of the events.
