History

King Harvest, formed in France in 1970, included Eddie Tuleja (guitar), Ron Altbach (keys), Rod Novak (bass, sax) and Wells Kelly (drums). The band recorded under various names in Paris and after winning a rock contest as King Harvest, recorded their first album and added French bassist Didier Alexandre to the group. The band was asked to score the soundtrack to a film, Le Feu Sacre, which represented France at the Cannes Film Festival in 1971, where they performed nightly at the Juan-les-Pins Whiskey-a-Go-Go. Joined by Doc Robinson (keys, vocals) they were booked to open for BB King at the Olympia Theatre in Paris and headline at the Speakeasy in London. In 1972 King Harvest teamed up with their producers Pierre Jaubert and Jack Robinson to record Dancing in the Moonlight, written by their old friend Sherman Kelly. Released in the U.S., Dancing in the Moonlight became a hit and stayed high on the Billboard charts for 22 weeks. King Harvest dissolved in 1976 to work with The Beach Boys, playing tours in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and England, and recording on Beach Boys, Celebration, and Dennis Wilson albums. Recently featured in 2019 World Series, Annabelle Comes Home, A-X-L, ESPN March Madness, Thoroughbreds, ABC's "Good Morning America", The Hitman's Bodyguard, Showtime's "I'm Dying Up Here", HBO "Girls", Guardians of the Galaxy, Hallmark Channel, The Middle, Scorpion , Better Call Saul, The Blacklist, Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa, Paul, and Bate's Motel.

    My Fiance and I are getting married tomorrow and we both agreed that Dancing in The Moonlight is going to be our wedding song. I'm active duty military, serving on a submarine and I cannot tell you how much your music has gotten me through hard times, be it deployments or the 8 months I just spent away from my fiance. Thank you guys so much for the beautiful tunes you've made.

    I graduated in 1971 Boynton Jr High in Ithaca NY. I went to the prom where we had a live band. The last song on the night was Dancing in the Moonlight. A memory that has stayed with me all these years. I always was under the impression that it was King Harvest performing. They sure had your sound. Many of my alum had parents that were professors at Cornell and Ithaca College which further strengthened my thoughts that it was King Harvest. Any chance that was actually you or just a really good cover band? Don’t think it was Boffalongo..? Sure would like to know. Thanks much Dan - Not us. We were in France. Wells Kelly returned to the US in 1971 and it may have been whatever band he was playing with then. Or maybe Boffalongo with Sherman Kelly.

    Does anyone know if a Leonard (Lenny) Emanuelli or Lenny Nicotri was ever part of the band? He is in a local band, and says he was in King Harvest and helped record Dancing in the Moonlight. I have my doubts, especially after hearing him sing. It's insulting to butcher such a great song!
