The Buckinghams (Kind of A Drag)

The trademark opening horn line on the Buckinghams #1 hit "Kind of a Drag" became a signature of the Chicago horn sound in 1967 as the hit single swept the nation. Other hits quickly followed that year, including "Don't You Care", "Susan", "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy" and "Hey Baby". When USA Records released "Kind of a Drag" no one anticipated the demand as the single rocketed to #1 across the country. Cash Box Magazine named them "The Most Promising Vocal Group in America" that year, and they delivered. I'm proud to get to perform with the Buckinghams during their summer tour dates. This video was taken at our performance at Summerfest 2017 in Milwaukee, WI for a crowd of about 5,000 fans.
