The Kingston Trio at the Key West Theater!

THE KINGSTON TRIO began with Nick Reynolds, Bob Shane and Dave Guard in 1955… Home base: San Francisco. The three founded what turned out to be the most influential music band to emerge from the 1950s, only to be outdone by The Beatles. With talent and tenacity, they rose to become the undisputed kings of an acoustic musical genre that exploded onto the American scene, and still exists today!

They were never actually folksingers but more a musical and vocal group that performed a variety of styles. Audiences worldwide agreed. Recently, the Kingston Trio received the “Grand Grammy” of all Grammys: The Lifetime Achievement Award. Reserved for those select few who have attained spectacular success in the music business over an extended career, this honor places the Trio among a heady pantheon of names like Frank Sinatra, Charlie Parker, and The Beatles.

With their signature-striped shirts, banjos, bongos, guitars and charismatic personalities, they became the biggest singing and recording act of their time.

Fans of legendary folk icons The Kingston Trio now have an opportunity to re-discover their timeless music as part of the national “Keep the Music Playing” tour which celebrates the group’s more than 60 years of entertaining audiences everywhere with performances of many of the Trio’s best-loved songs.

All three current members, Mike Marvin, Tim Gorelangton and Don Marovich have intrinsic links to and experience with the original group: Mike, the “adopted son” of Nick Reynolds, grew up at the knee of the Kingston Trio founding member, who was his life-long musical mentor; Tim, a close friend since boyhood, is one of the few musicians outside the Trio who has recorded with Nick Reynolds; and Don Marovich who has performed with the Trio and who plays the guitar, banjo and mandolin.

Many of their personal memories recall the iconic trio’s performances and journey as folk music made its extraordinary ascent to the pinnacle of popular culture – and the top of the music charts.
