Since they were introduced to Dick Clark in the late 60's and began touring
with some of the major artists at that time like Paul Revere and the Raiders,
the Rascals and also Herman Hermits which were part of the "Caravan of Stars"
which was sponsored by Dick Clark. The Heywoods soon were known as local
recording artist. They were signed on with Queen -Bee and Gene Autry's Republic
records, which some of their tunes received local air play in Cincinnati, but
not played nationally. Their biggest break came when they began touring with
one of the biggest pop family's of the seventies and their name is still a
major part of the music that we all know and love today, The Osmonds. The
Heywoods began touring with The Osmonds back in the early seventies and soon
came the break that The Heywoods needed to be known nationally. They were
signed up with a major record company, Family Productions, and got their
first charted single with "Special Someone. "It was released in 1972 and
was the title to their debut album. Soon came a follow up single "You Don't
Own Me," and the group became known as Bo Donaldson and The Heywoods. They
left Family Productions in 1973 and were signed up by ABC records produced
by Steve Barri and released the single "Deeper and Deeper" and by March of
1974 came as we all know one of The Heywoods biggest #1 hits and gold records
"Billy Don't Be A Hero" and soon to follow 'Who Do You Think You Are?" and
"The Heartbreak Kid" and "Our Last Song Together.In late 1975 the group left
ABC records for the record company of Capital records and released their
third album Farther On with the hits of "Oh Boy" ,"Hello its Me" and Teenage
Rampage." The Heywoods left Capital Records in late 1976 and in 1977 they
were back with a single for Playboy Records "Give Me Some Time."
1978 Bo released the single "Love Spirit Lady" on Republic Records under the name The Bo Donaldson Band.By the 1980's the country group called River Bend was born, performing such hits as "Til The Well Runs Dry","One Call At A Time" and "Crazy Over You".In the 1990's Bo decided that it was time to get the group back that all of us remember as Bo Donaldson and The Heywoods. They released a new CD in 1996 "The Best of Bo Donaldson and The Heywoods and once again they are together performing through out the country.
