RON DANTE OF "THE ARCHIES" TONIGHT IN BAND ON LETTERMAN'S SHOW @ 28 July 2010 11:02 AM
The lead singer (and much of the background voices) behind The Archies (whose "Sugar, Sugar" edged out "Hey Jude" for the number one song of 1969), the vocals behind "I'm a Pepper, You're a Pepper," "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing," Applebys and hundreds of other commercials, as well as recording and Broadway show producer Ron Dante will be sitting in with Paul Shaffer and his band tonight on The Late Show with David Letterman.
Ron's appearance for the show in The Ed Sullivan Theater is a return, in a way, because The Archies appeared on a Sullivan show once. I remember sitting through most of the show, eagerly anticipating seeing the voices behind the hit songs -- then Sullivan introduced a "special treat for the youngsters" and then came a clip of "The Bubble Gum" dance and "Bang Shang-A-Lang" from Filmation's animated The Archie Show!
Ron has just released this new album of all-time great rock and pop hits called Favorites (with backup from such music notables as Peter Noone and Andy Kim) -- and Disney fans can also hear Ron singing "That's How You Know" from Enchanted on the new Disney Happily Ever After album.
