A 24-Decade History of Popular Music is Taylor Mac's multiyear effort to chart a subjective history of the United States through 246 songs that were popular throughout the country — and its disparate communities — from 1776 to the present day. In performing the work, Mac is joined by an orchestra — led by music director Matt Ray, who created new arrangements of all 246 songs — plus an ensemble of "Dandy Minions" and a variety of local special guests, including members of the audience cast as colonial needleworkers, World War One soldiers, and Yum Yum from The Mikado. Costume designer Machine Dazzle, a longtime Mac collaborator, has made by hand an outrageously imaginative, world-unto-itself costume specific to each decade.

In 1965, Micky Dolenz was cast in the television sitcom The Monkees along with Davy Jones, Michael Nesmith, and Peter Tork and became the drummer and vocalist in the "imaginary" band that wanted to be The Beatles but that was never successful. The actors and musicians, however, soon became a real band. Dolenz wrote a few of the group's self-pinned songs as well as provided lead vocals for such hits as "Last Train to Clarksville," "Take a Giant Step," "Pleasant Valley Sunday," "Daydream Believer," and "I'm a Believer," giving The Monkees their distinctive sound. Although the sitcom was cancelled in 1968, the band continued to record until 1971. The Monkees have sold more than 75 million records worldwide and, at their peak in 1967, beat the sales of the Beatles and Rolling Stones combined.
