Seals of Approval 

Sans Crofts, the Seals headlines a '70s soft-rock show.

Toni Gras plans to wax nostalgic at tonight's '70s Flashback. She's hoping headliners Jim and Dan Seals play her favorite Seals & Crofts song, "Hummingbird." "It always brings tears to my eyes," says Gras, who ran the Seals & Crofts Fan Club from 1971 to 1981. "I've never heard anyone harmonize the way they do. Every time they bring in the mandolin, I can't get enough of it."

Ever since old partner Dash Crofts split, Jim Seals has been touring with brother Dan (of England Dan & John Ford Coley fame) to sing '70s soft-rock hits like "Summer Breeze" and "We May Never Pass This Way Again." Still, Gras is hoping for a dream show sometime in the very near future. "I'd really like to see Seals & Crofts and England Dan & John Ford Coley all perform together," she says. "That would be a bang-up concert."
