Captain & Tennille are American pop music recording artists who achieved chart success from 1975 to 1980. The duo consists of “Captain” Daryl Dragon (born August 27, 1942), and Cathryn Antoinette “Toni” Tennille (born May 8, 1940), who are also married. They are best known for their singles “Love Will Keep Us Together” and “Do That to Me One More Time“. Their television variety series appeared on the ABC network in the 1976–77 season.
In 1971 Toni Tennille was the co-writer of an ecology-themed musical called Mother Earth. At that time, Daryl Dragon (son of composer Carmen Dragon) was the keyboardist for The Beach Boys. When Tennille’s show was getting ready to move from San Francisco’s Marines Memorial Theatre to Southern California’s South Coast Repertory, a call was put out for a replacement keyboardist. Dragon was in-between tours when he heard about the opening, went to audition for Tennille, and landed the gig.
