Vanity Fare formed in 1966 and are best remembered for their million-selling song ‘Hitchin‘ a Ride‘, which became a worldwide hit in 1970. Two more hit singles followed before the end of 1970 – ‘Come Tomorrow‘ and ‘Carolina‘s Coming Home’. In the mid 70s they decided to concentrate on live performances touring Europe, where they were having hit singles. Their highly developed style of melodic close harmonies still wows audiences today. The band is joined by Steve Ellis, who first began with the Soul Survivors, later Love Affair. Steve Ellis was acknowledged as one of the best soul-rock singers in the business and this epithet continues today.
Showaddywaddy had more UK hits in the 1970s than any other act – including Abba! From their winning appearance on an edition of New Faces, the Britain’s Got Talent of the day, to become runners-up in the series’ All Winners Final, it took just a matter of months until the band released and secured their debut hit, Hey Rock And Roll, which reached No2 in the UK Singles Chart. Now there’s a Greatest Hits vinyl LP collection, features 16 of the band’s best-known singles, including nine Top Ten hits and the Million-Selling No1 single, Under The Moon Of Love. Showaddywaddy are recognised as one of the hardest working touring bands in the UK.
New Amen Corner have emerged in the last couple of years as arguably the hottest band on the 60s circuit with an unrivalled ability to perfectly recreate the sound and atmosphere of that momentous period 50 years ago when music sent good vibrations across the world. The original Amen Corner was a big influence on the 60s pop scene, creating their own unique brand of music, a mixture of mod, psychedelic power pop, heavy horns, swirling Hammond organ and distinctive voice of Andy Fairweather-Low. Their power house live show made them one of the most exciting bands around. With million seller hits like Gin House, Bend Me Shape Me, If Paradise was half as Nice, High in the Sky, & Hello Suzie they became a household name in the late 60s. The New Amen Corner has a musical pedigree second to none with band members who have played with the likes of Screaming Lord Sutch, The Symbols, Jeff Beck, Alexsis Korner, Roy Wood, Robert Plant, Alvin Stardust, Ruby Turner, Mike Oldfield and Jaki Graham to name but a few. Their Bringing on Back the 60s show is a veritable discography of the era.
Multi-talented multi-instrumentalist Glen Leon has played the guitar from the age of nine with his vocal talents emerging shortly after. He became a professional musician at the age of 16. For the last 15 Years Glen has performed with The Soul Survivors and the 60s band New Amen Corner, who are going from strength to strength appearing at home and abroad in theatres everywhere. Glen can also be seen performing solo in his Tom Jones act where his vocal range truly evokes the Welsh legend.
Nancy Ann Lee is best known as “Little Miss Sixties” where she has received rave reviews for being one of the liveliest tributes to the 60s divas including Lulu whose songs make a huge contribution to the show. Remember Shout, Relight My Fire, Teardrops, The Man Who Sold the World, To Sir With Love and more.
Following his success on ‘Stars in Their Eyes’ Jimmy Jermain is the official UK No.1 Cliff Richard Tribute and Europe’s finest and most professional tribute to Cliff Richard. Boasting an uncanny, even eerie likeness to the Peter Pan of pop, Jemain has got all the moves, mannerisms and certainly the authentic voice to utterly convince as a Richard tribute. Jimmy also starred in “Cliff the Musical” in London’s West End and covers almost every hit record Cliff Richard (who has 14 number 1 singles) has ever had. Some of the covers include “Move It”, “Living Doll”, “Summer Holiday”, “Miss You Nights” and more. In this show he performs with the Knight Shadows adding another dynamic to his solo show.
Sounds Imperial are well established highly professional live four-piece band covering from music from the 60s to the Present Day. This band is always popular with audiences wherever they play with a stage show that lives up to their name.
