Herman’s Hermits emerged in the Mid-60s music scene alongside The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and many more British bands. From their beginning in Manchester on April 1st 1964, the band has chalked up over 23 hit singles, 10 hit albums, 3 major movies and countless television shows and concert tours all over the world. To date they have total record sales of over 75 million. Since the 1971 departure of Peter Noone to pursue a solo career, the group has never stopped. Original member Barry (the Bean) Whitwam has guided the band from strength to strength into one of the hardest working acts in the business – they still average more than 200 gigs a year. The ‘Golden Oldies’ still make up amost of their show – much to the enjoyment of their fans, who can’t resist singing along to ‘Mrs Brown You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter’, ‘Silhouettes’, ‘Dandy’, ‘Henry VIII’ and many others. From the 60s, though the 70s, 80s, 90s and into the 21st century, Herman’s Hermits are still ‘Into Something Good’.
Since originally forming as the Four Jays in 1959, The Fourmost have remained continuously active on the UK and European 60s music scene. While the band’s formation has changed over the years, the look and sound of the band has remained authentic and true to its heritage, contributing to its success and longevity. The Fourmost has its roots steeped in the eclectic 1960s Merseybeat boom and was part of the Brian Epstein stable along with The Beatles, Billy J Kramer, Gerry and The Pacemakers and others. The band has evolved from enjoying 1960s chart hits such as Hello Little Girl and A Little Loving and lesser hits like Baby I Need Your Lovin, Here There and Everywhere and a cover of George Formby’s Auntie Maggie’s Remedy. The Fourmost are one of the most authentic 1960s bands currently on the circuit today, from their Vox amps, Rickenbacker guitars and Ludwig drums down to their Italian made slim fitted suits and Cuban heel boots. The Fourmost are: Kevin Clarkson – drums/vocals, Lee Clarkson – bass/vocals, Alex Leyland – rhythm guitar/vocals and Adrian Fountain – lead guitar.vocals.
The Moondogs are a young, vibrant 3-piece cover band recreating the sights, sounds and raw energy that defined the 50s and 60s. From the fantastic 50s Rock n Roll sounds of Elvis, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis, to the musical explosion that defined the 60s from bands like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Animals, Johnny Kidd and the Pirates, The Kinks, Spencer Davis Group et al. This trio will transport you back to those exciting times when music shaped a generation.
Originally created in 1969, it was not until 1973 that Brotherhood of Man formed a definite four-member line-up in 1973 consisting of Martin Lee, Lee Sheriden, Nicky Stevens and Sandra Stevens. They went on to score many hits around the world in the mid to late 1970s including “Kiss Me Kiss Your Baby”, “Angelo”, “Oh Boy (The Mood I’m In)” and “Figaro”. They achieved their biggest success when they won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1976 with “Save Your Kisses For Me” and they also had three number-one singles and four top-twenty albums in the 70s. The group still continues performing with the same original line-up. Altogether, they have released 16 studio albums, with worldwide sales topping 15 million records.
The legend of ABBA lives on with a legacy of timeless tunes ensuring their place in music history. The Swedish supergroup is as popular and well-loved today as it was in its 70s heyday, with classic pop songs and dancefloor beats familiar with generation after generation. Top tribute band Abba Revival have been recognized by the music industry as the ‘OfficialNo 1’ Abba tribute show. They are without a doubt the best Abba tribute band to emerge from the UK, selling out shows at home and internationally for over 6 years.
The music of Luther Vandross has had huge impact on a whole generation. Steve Williamson – as Simply Luther – doesn’t just mimic Luther; he plays tribute to a legend who left us far too early. His voice will leave you tingling and spellbound. His amazing live band adds the right level of drive to impeccably match Steve’s vocals.
International tribute artist and sensational showman Rock Stewart is now recognised as the most authentic vocal tribute to the legendary Rod Stewart. Rock has enchanted audiences across Europe and in the far east, even performing in front of the royal family in the united emirates at the 200th anniversary of the battle of Trafalgar 2005. Rock Stewart is the only Rod Stewart tribute with a vocal range that is almost exactly the same as Rod’s, and a personality that delights audiences wherever he performs.
Too Rex are an outstanding T-Rex tribute band featuring the incomparable Bobby T as Marc Bolan. He looks like him and sounds like him and he’s got the same on stage persona and vibe. This authentic tribute show covers the spectrum of Bolan’s career from the early hippie days of Tyrannosaurus Rex to the chart topping smash hits of T-Rex. Too Rex recreate the live concert-feel of a real T-Rex gig – it’s the closest you’ll ever get. Bobby T’s performance is truly incredible, he takes the impersonation of Bolan very seriously, he’s one of a kind.
