  1. Saw The Grass Roots a few weeks ago at Casino@Dania Beach, The band was terrific.

    A year or so ago, I saw Gary Puckett at Coral Springs Center, sorry to say that Gary’s voice isn’t what it use to be. Gary was very entertaining and I enjoyed him, but his voice is shot.

    My wife and I saw the Grass Roots at the Dania Beach Casino a few weeks ago. Although there were no original members the band was great. We also saw Puckett with Peter Noone at Coral Springs Center a year ago and Noone was terrific while Puckett was very personable but his voice isn’t like it was back in the 60s.

  3. Mary Stango says...

    During the past 6 months my husband and I have seen both groups in concert, No question, both have a number of hits and the audience seemingly knows every song they sing,

    The Grass Roots have 4 players. Not one of them is an original band member. The current group has been together for a number of years and does really good job in covering the hits.

    As for Gary Puckett who is 80+ his voice is totally gone.The great voice that he had is totally gone and he relies on the audience to sing parts of the songs to try and cover up for the voice that’s no more.

    The crazy part of this concert story is that my husband and I and the rest of the audience LOVED the show. All of the hits and the audience really getting into the music makes for a fun nostalgic trip back to the 60s.

  4. Michael Cruz says...

    Saw both groups last year.
    Although the GR aren’t original members, the current lineup puts on a great show.
    As for Gary Puckett, his voice is GONE and I do mean totally GONE. I loved him years ago, but it’s now time for Gary to call it quits.

  5. Peter Gross says...

    I saw both groups a few months ago.
    The Grass Roots were terrific.
    Gary P was very personable, but he can’t sing a lick.

  6. Danny Roseman says...

    Big 50s-60s oldies fan here.

    GP is one of the nicest guys in the music business. He also HAD a great voice. That voice is NO MORE! His act has him getting the audience to sing along with him, in his attempt to cover up for his NO MORE VOICE!

    The Grass Roots put on a really good show. All of the current lineup have played with the late Rob Grill who was the group’s lead singer except on its first hit record.

    By the way, Frankie Valli has been lip synching for the past 17 years.

  7. Walter Dubois says...

    Just bought a couple of tickets.
    Not the best seats, but that’s what was left.

    My wife and I have seen both groups and they both put on good shows.

    For sure Puckett’s voice isn’t what it use to be, but he is so engaging that the audience lets him slide. On the GR, its lead singer, Mark Dawson does justice to the hits.
