Felix Cavaliere's Rascals

the king of blue-eyed soul

Early in 1965, Felix Cavaliere formed the `Young Rascals' with Dino Danelli, Eddie Brigati, and Gene Cornish. That October, they caught the attention of promoter/manager Sid Bernstein with their high-energy set at Long Island's elite club, Barge. Signed to Atlantic Records, and now called The Rascals, the mega hit "Good Lovin'" struck No. 1 in February 1966. They followed suit with a string of hits "I've Been Lonely Too Long," "Groovin'(No. 1 in 1967), "How Can I Be Sure," "A Girl Like You," " It's A Beautiful Morning," and "People Got to Be Free" (No. 1 in 1968).

Felix's message and mantra has always been about writing songs for peace, love, and happiness. He has been blessed to be inducted into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Songwriter Hall of Fame, Vocal Group Hall of Fame, and Grammy Hall of Fame.

The classically trained pianist, born in Pelham, New York, idolized Ray Charles, Marvin Gaye, and Sam Cook. Felix Cavaliere embraced the Hammond Organ and pioneered the unique fresh, rock and roll sound that became the standard for all rock groups.

By the early 70s, The Rascals experimented with more jazz-influenced sounds, and moved to Columbia Records. The Rascals disbanded in 1972. Felix Cavaliere's solo career thrived during this decade. He released his self-titled debut album with Todd Rundgren at the producer helm. His follow-up albums were Destiny (1974), Castles in the Air (1979) (Castle in the Air produced another Top 40 hit - "Only a Heart Sees" reached No. 2), Dreams in Motion(1994) and in 2008 he collaborated with Stax guitar legend, Steve Crooper, on the Grammy-nominated Nudge it Up a Notch and again in 2010 with Midnight Flyer.

Felix has been a long time supporter of The Mansion on O Street and O Museum Foundation's Artist-in-Residence and Heroes programs. he produced our 25th anniversary album "Realize Your Vision".
