Back to the 60s Cotswolds Party Break
3 days, 27th October, 2019, £169 per person
The New Honeycombs evolved from the original Honeycombs, who burst onto the pop scene with the worldwide hit number one Have I The Right in 1964 followed by another That’s The Way, Is It Because and the Ray Davies penned Something Better Beginning. Their set is virtually a discography of the 1960s.
Union Gap gained worldwide recognition when their first combined release Young Girl hit No.1 in the UK and No.2 in the USA in 1968. After several more hits, in 1971 the band parted company with Gary Puckett. In 1974 Young Girl was re-released in the UK and the new Union Gap was put together to promote the record which was yet again a smash hit. Eventually the band went their separate ways until in 1996 they relaunched the New Union Gap with Tom Harding on bass guitar and lead vocals. They were an instant success on the 60s circuit playing all the major festivals, theatres and holiday centres throughout the UK. The boys have worked extensively to put together a repertoire of classic songs from the 60s to 90s, which they perform either in the original form or in their own unique style – many of which appear on their albums This Time Around, Classics and By Request. The band – now known as Union Gap UK – have also perfected their distinctive concert sound, which make them stand out from the crowd.
Multi-talented multi-instrumentalist Glen Leon has played the guitar from the age of nine with his vocal talents coming 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.
Performances will be with cabaret-style dining seated at shared tables of 8-10 guests and set menu – special diets can be catered for with prior notice.
