We welcome the legendary Micky Dolenz to our guest list for Retro Con 2022! Alongside Davy Jones, Mike Nesmith, and Peter Tork, Micky is best known as the vocalist and drummer for the 60’s pop group sensation The Monkees!

Originally conceived as a 1966 sitcom (and a bit of a “riff” on the Beatles), the cast of the Monkees brought along a presence all their own, quickly becoming a full-fledged rock band by 1967. With such mega-hit songs as “Last Train to Clarksville”, “I’m a Believer”, “Pleasant Valley Sunday”, and “Daydream Believer”, this eclectic band sold more than 75 million records worldwide, making them one of the best-selling music groups of all time!

The band later enjoyed a surprise revival in the 1980’s, when repeats of the Monkees show hit MTV and were an instant hit with audiences. This spawned an entire NEW generation of fans, officially turning the band into a multi-generational phenomenon! Although Davy, Peter, and Mike have all passed on, Micky still keeps the band’s legacy going strong through musical performances throughout the country and world.

A lot of people don’t realize Micky Dolenz is also a voice actor! Some of his voiceover roles include Skip from The Funky Phantom, Tod Devlin on Devlin, Min & Max on Batman: The Animated Series, Arthur and Captain Lemming on The Tick, and for a short while (believe it or not)… fabric softener mascot Snuggle Bear!

Micky will be attending Retro Con as a guest both Saturday and Sunday. There will not be a musical performance attached to this appearance, but Micky will be available to meet with fans and will be taking part in a Q&A panel at the show (day and time TBD). He’ll also be bringing along oodles (barrels?) of Monkees merchandise to sell! Prints, records, shirts, books, drumsticks, posters, drum heads, DVDs, and much more! Prices for merch/autographs/photo ops will be listed on the website as we get closer to showtime.
