The organizers of the Monkees Convention that will take place in March with headliners Micky Dolenz and Mike Nesmith announced Jan. 22 three more special guests are being added to the lineup.

They include Bobby Hart, the co-writer with the late Tommy Boyce of many of the Monkees' hits, including the TV show's iconic theme and “Last Train to Clarksville.” Their songs appeared on every original Monkees album except “Head.” Boyce & Hart had their own top 10 hit, “I Wonder What She's Doing Tonight,” and two other songs, “Out & About,” and “Alice Long (You're Still My Favorite Girlfriend)” in the Billboard Top 40 in 1968. The duo went out on tour with Dolenz and Davy Jones in the '70s as Dolenz, Jones, Boyce & Hart.

Also added to the show is Andrew Sandoval, Grammy nominated producer and musician and the author of “The Monkees: The Day-by-Day Story of the 60s TV Pop Sensation.” Sandoval has been involved with the reissues of their albums and their tours in recent years.

The third guest is Rachel Litchman, who put together the video show for last year's Monkees concert tour and is working on a documentary about Monkees songwriters Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart.

Monkees Convention 2014 will take place March 14-16 at the Hilton Meadowlands in Meadowlands, N.J. For tickets, visit the Monkees convention website.
