The group then took a bow and headed off stage for an ever-so-brief moment, returning to wow the crowed with two more. The encores were "Question" featuring Hayward on 12-string guitar and the Lodge-penned anthem "Ride My See-Saw" from 1968's In Search of the Lost Chord (Threshold Records).

The evening was a blend of pop, folk rock and classical, orchestral melodies with a cosmic touch of psychedelia layered over sweet harmonies and a tasty backbeat that grabbed the listener and didn't let go. As the audience filed out of the arena into the cool Long Island air, every face I saw wore a smile.
