Returning to television for the first first time in over forty years, the musical melting pot of the sixties is on full display in HULLABALOO - A '60s POP FLASHBACK in complete song performances, starting with the joyful pop harmonies of Herman's Hermits ("Can't You Feel My Heartbeat"), Sonny & Cher ("I Got You Babe") and The Four Seasons ("Working My Way Back To You").
The sixties' folk-rock sounds include the million-selling "Mr. Tambourine Man" by The Byrds, "Eve of Destruction," a #1 hitby Barry McGuire, the Pete Seeger-penned "If I Had A Hammer" sung by Trini Lopez, "You Didn't Have To Be So Nice"by troubadour John Sebastian with The Lovin' Spoonful and the classic anthem "California Dreamin'" by The Mamas & The Papas.

Hullabaloo is also famous for its use of Broadway trained performers who made up the iconic Hullabaloo dancers, including future Tony Award winners (A Chorus Line) Donna McKechnie and Michael Bennett in addition to iconic go-go dancer Lada Edmunds, Jr.
Gary Smith, the Emmy Award-winning creator of "Hullabaloo" has joined forces with TJ Lubinsky, the creator of the PBS My Music series of record-breaking pledge specials, to produce HULLABALOO - A '60s POP FLASHBACK.
