Cassidy rose to stardom some 40 years ago in another hit television show, "The Partridge Family."
He was responsible for seven chart-topping Partridge Family singles including "Doesn't Somebody Want To Be Wanted," "I Woke Up In Love This Morning," "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do," and of course, "I Think I Love You", the best selling record of 1971.
As a solo artist, Cassidy has had hit singles including "Cherish," "Could It Be Forever," "How Can I Be Sure," "Rock Me Baby" and "Lyin' to Myself." His 2004 CD, "Then and Now," was in the Top Five and reached platinum status.
In addition to the superstardom he has enjoyed as a singer, songwriter and producer, Cassidy still thinks of himself as an actor.
His credits, from the phenomenal success of "The Partridge Family" also include the telefilm "A Chance to Live" the highest rated "Police Story" in its seven year history, which earned him an Emmy nomination as Best Dramatic Actor.
Never one to rest on his laurels, he went to Broadway where he starred in the original production of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat." Ironically. brother Patrick starred in the same show in the same role on a national tour in 2005.
London beckoned to David, and he starred next at the prestigious West End in "Time" with Sir Laurence Olivier. In 1994, he once again broke box office records in the stunning and highly lauded production of "Blood Brothers" on Broadway, working for the first time with Shaun. The subsequent tour of the United States and Canada was also SRO.
In 1996, David took on his next challenge and moved to Las Vegas to star at the MGM Grand in the $75 million extravaganza "EFX." Under David's creative direction and by entirely re-vamping the show, it became the most successful production in Las Vegas.
Remember When is one of the most popular oldies bands in eastern and central Pennsylvania.
Remember When's three members have been playing music for a combined total of nearly 70 years. The band members include Bud Wychulis on keyboard, Jim Martuscelli on guitar and Rick Martuscelli on drums.
They have a passion for singing 3-part harmony and it shows in their accurate representations of the oldies. But do not expect to hear the same old songs, Remember When likes to mix it up, playing some classic favorites along with some you probably have not heard since your last high school sock hop. Their repertoire consists of the music of Danny and The Juniors, Dion and The Belmonts, The Jive Five, The Videos and the Skyliners, just to name a few.
