Join Justin Ploof and The Throwbacks for one special night only as they bring you the hits of Carole King! Carole King brought the fledgling singer/songwriter phenomenon to the masses with Tapestry, one of the most successful albums in pop music history. A remarkably expressive and intimate record, it’s a work of consummate craftsmanship. Always a superior pop composer, King is the most successful female songwriter of the latter half of the 20th century, having written or co-written 118 pop hits on the Billboard Hot 100. King would also go on to have a successful solo career with sixteen Top 40 hits and selling over 75 million albums worldwide!!!

You may not know that Carole King wrote many #1 hits made famous by other performing artists! To name just a few…. “It’s Too Late”, “Take Good Care of My Baby” (Bobby Vee), “Up on the Roof” (The Drifters), “I’m into Something Good” (Hermans Hermits), I Feel The Earth Move”, “One Fine Day” (The Chiffons), “Pleasant Valley Sunday” (The Monkees), “Natural Woman” (Aretha Franklin), “Sweet Seasons”, “Only Love Is Real” and many, many more…
