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.

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 replication of the original sound of the Eagles is so true, you’ll think you’ve been transported back to the 60s.
