Micky and Davy performed a series of shows at New York's Riverboat Cafe (in the Empire State Building) in 1977. The photo below was taken on April 17, 1977. They were backed that evening by The Laughing Dogs and Micky's sister, Coco.
Thanks to Cassie Wilson for submitting this picture from her personal collection. As we said in an exchange of emails, it's not the best, but photos from this era are sometimes hard to come by...
Micky and Davy starred in Harry Nilsson's "The Point" at the Mermaid Theatre in London in 1977. An original cast album was later released by MCA Records.
Peter joined Micky and Davy onstage at Hollywood's Starwood Club on March 24, 1977. Micky's sister, Coco, is in the background.
After wrapping up their involvement in Dolenz, Jones, Boyce & Hart, Davy and Micky appeared together in a musical version of "Tom Sawyer" in Sacramento, California between August 22 and 28, 1977. To the left is the program from the show. This would be one of the last projects the duo would participate in together during the 1970s. In December 1977 they starred in Harry Nilsson's musical "The Point" in London, giving their final performance in February 1978. Davy and Micky would not work together again until reuniting for The Monkees' 20th Anniversary in 1986.
Below is an article from a California newspaper (filled with an inaccuracy or two, making it sound as if Head was not a Monkees movie and just one Micky starred in) and a picture from the era.

Thanks again to Richard who sent in another scan of an article discussing Micky and Davy's appearance at the Riverboat in New York City in 1977. Richard believes it was originally published in Creem magazine. (Sorry it is a bit tough to read...try saving the image to your computer and then zooming in on it.)
Thanks to Richard for sending in the scans that appear below. The top clips are two advertisements for a 1977 performance at New York City's Riverboat club by Micky and Davy with The Laughing Dogs. Micky's sister, Coco, was also a part of the show. (By March 1977, Dolenz, Jones, Boyce & Hart had disbanded. While Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart went back to their songwriting careers, Micky and Davy continued touring with Micky's sister Coco while sometimes being backed by The Laughing Dogs.)
The bottom scan features a photo of Micky and Trina Dow in 1977 that appeared in the New York Daily News.
Richard attended one of the concerts by Micky and Davy at the Riverboat. He reported that the setlist contained 6 Monkees songs - "Last Train to Clarksville," "I'm A Believer," "Daydream Believer," "Steppin' Stone," "I Wanna Be Free" and possibly "Pleasant Valley Sunday."
On the Dolenz, Jones, Boyce and Hart page, I've created a small section dedicated to Micky and Davy's activities in 1977. You can see a few pictures from that era, including a reunion with Peter, as well as the tour program used for their show at that time. Two YouTube clips featuring audio of Micky/Davy shows have also been added.
Thanks again to Richard for the scans. Anyone else out there have material to share from this era in Monkees history?
