The band achieved national success in the 1960’s, behind hits like “The Rain, the Park and Other Things,” and “Hair.” They made numerous TV appearances, including on The Ed Sullivan Show and The Johnny Cash Show, touring frequently in their heyday. The Cowsills were 2013 inductees in the Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame.

Paul stills tours with his brother Bob and sister Susan. They frequently go out on the road with the “Happy Together” tour, a show that includes 60’s favorites The Turtles, The Association and The Classics IV. More details here.
