Over the years, longtime Monkees fan Jennifer Winkle has attended numerous Monkees concerts, and this past winter she shared her rich catalog of photos with the Live Almanac. Here's two collections from concerts at Westbury Music Fair in Westbury, New York in the winter and summer of 2001. You'll also see members of The Monkees' backing band in these slideshows, which featured Wayne Avers (guitar), Dave Alexander (keyboards), Jerry Renino (bass), Aviva Maloney (sax/flute), and Sandy Gennaro (drums). Thanks, Jennifer, and there's more to come!

After releasing Justus, an album of all-new material in late 1996, The Monkees began work on an original one-hour prime time TV special in January 1997, and it eventually aired in the United States on ABC on February 17, 1997. This article, from the March 1997 issue of Monkee Business Fanzine and written by MBF editor Maggie McManus, details the genesis and filming of the television special, the group's first since 1969's 33 1/3 Revolutions Per Monkee.
