There’ll be no “musical generation gap” between young and old who attend Brigham Young University’s Homecoming concert Thursday, Oct. 30.

The Cowsills, a family act, have achieved national prominence with a blend of “rock” and “melodic” sounds that appeals to music lovers of all ages.

Tickets for the concert, which will be held at 8:15 p.m. in the George Albert Smith Fieldhouse, are on sale on the Wilkinson Center. A Sergio Mendez-type group, called “The Carnival” will also perform at the concert.

June, 1967 marks the entry of the Cowsills onto the national music scene with a gold record entitled, “The Rain, the Park, and Other Things.” The sound itself appealed to youthful listeners, while the “family” angle won many older fans for the new group.

A second hit record, “We Can Fly,” firmly established the Cowsills as more than a novelty act. MGM launched an extensive advertising campaign, and son the Cowsills were one of the most-sought-after groups in America.
