The Flamingos, named by Billboard magazine as one of the most influential vocal groups in pop music history, are appearing Friday, Jan. 17 in the up-close setting of the Valley Ballroom at the Carson Valley Inn. Doors open at 6:15 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m.

The Flamingos created a unique sound that still inspires many artists. As the group celebrates its diamond anniversary, they are known as the “Ambassadors for Romance” and are better than ever.

Led by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Terry Johnson, The Flamingos perform their greatest hits including “I Only Have Eyes for You,” heralded by The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a song that helped define rock and roll.

With nine charted hits and four albums, The Flamingos expand its repertoire during concerts to include classic songs from the American Songbook, an inspiring video tribute honoring the troops, comedy and the kind of show that seems to hit all age groups with pure entertainment.

This mix of cleverly arranged music from the past and present creates a memory-filled concert that brings fans to their feet repeatedly.

Johnson went to Motown Records as an artist and producing partners with Smokey Robinson.

As an artist, he recorded several records on the Gordy Label. He wrote, arranged and produced songs for Smokey Robinson and The Miracles, The Supremes, The Four Tops, The Temptations, Martha Reeves and The Vandellas, Edwin Starr, The Spinners, Bobby Taylor and the Vancouvers, Jimmy Ruffin, Mickey Denton, Blinky and other Motown artists.

Tickets are $22 and they can be purchased at the Carson Valley Inn hotel desk or call 775-783-6606.

A special Flamingos weekend hotel package for two is available including a hotel room for two nights (arrive on Thursday or Friday), a dining credit, a private meet and greet with the Flamingos before the show with complimentary cocktails and two tickets to the Friday night Flamingos concert.

Call 775-783-6629 and request the Flamingos weekend package. Must be 21 or over, limited availability.

The Carson Valley Inn is located on U.S. Highway 395 in Minden, Nev. near the start of State Highway 88.
