Special PaleyFest: Rewind Screening, Panel, and Musical Performance
Family Band: The Cowsills Story
Thursday, July 21, 2011
With hits including "The Rain the Park and Other Things," "Hair," and "Indian Lake," the Cowsill's soaring harmonies reached the top of the charts in the late 1960s. Comprised of a family of musically gifted children and their talented mom, the group was an entertainment phenomenon, appearing on the top variety series of the day including The Ed Sullivan Show and The Dean Martin Show and influencing a generation of musicians and artists; they were even the real-life inspiration for the hit series The Partridge Family. The Center is proud to present this PaleyFest Rewind special event featuring a screening of the new documentary Family Band: The Cowsills Story chronicling the Cowsills' often tumultuous rise to fame and their enduring four-decade musical journey. Following the screening, join the film's creative team and members of the Cowsills band for an in-person conversation and special musical performance.
