Now, to continue his re-examination of past hits, Davies is returning to the U.S. for a month-long run with Los Angeles quartet The 88.

For the trek, which kicks off Feb. 26 at the Borgata Music Box in Atlantic City, N.J., Davies will perform two sets.

The first will see the singer backed by Bill Shanley on guitar and the second will feature The 88 as his backing band.

Fans can expect to hear a selection of Davies’ solo work in the early part of the evening and a hefty dose of hits by The Kinks, including “You Really Got Me,” “All Day and All of the Night” and “Waterloo Sunset,” later in the show.

While audiences are no doubt familiar with Davies and The Kinks, The 88 may be a bit more of a mystery.

However, the chances are really good that they’re familiar with the band’s music – they just don’t know it.

Tunes by the group have found their way into a plethora of films, television shows, commercials and even video games.

The 88 can be heard in “Failure to Launch,” “You Me and Dupree,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “How I Met Your Mother,” “Gossip Girl,” ads for Sears and Target, “Rock Band 2” and the theme song for NBC’s hit Joel McHale/Chevy Chase sitcom, “Community.”
