Jampol Artist Management Inc., whose roster includes such legacy artists as The Doors, Janis Joplin, Ramones, Otis Redding, Muddy Waters and Jefferson Airplane, among others, has signed seminal 60s group The Mamas & The Papas for representation. The firm will work on behalf of the group in exploring and accessing opportunities in feature and documentary films, commercial syncs, apparel and licensing, stage productions, museum exhibitions, digital products, books and more.
JAM will also represent the individual management of the group’s sole living member, Michelle Phillips, as well as the estates of John Phillips, “Mama” Cass Elliot and Denny Doherty.
The group found fame with the 1966 hit “California Dreamin’,” a folk-rock classic that introduced the world to a burgeoning psychedelic movement and the effervescent harmonies of the foursome as its soundtrack. The Mamas & The Papas would see more hits through the late ’60s including “Monday, Monday,” “Go Where You Wanna Go” and “I Call Your Name.” Covers of “Dedicated to the One I Love,” sung by Michelle Phillips on lead, and “Dream a Little Dream of Me,” featuring Mama Cass, also resonated.
