His follow-up was “Donna“, Written by Ritchie Valens, which went one better, peaking at number 3 early in 1959 and staying in the top 50 for four months. Marty’s chart progress continued with “ Teenager in Love“ which reached number two in the UK. The hits then followed one after another with “Sea of Love“, “Bad Boy”, “Jezebel” and many more.

Sheffield born Singer Dave Berry, formed his band The Cruisers in 1960. Dave’s stage persona was influenced by Elvis Presley and Gene Vincent, and a few years later singer Alvin Stardust had accredited Dave’s stage act as to how Alvin appears himself on stage. During the 1960’s Dave enjoyed great chart success, a Top 20 hit in 1963 with their first record, Memphis Tenessee, lead to more hits with their success with the classic hit, The Crying Game coming in 1964. This Classic song brought Berry’s voice to his biggest international audience ever in 1992, when it was used as the theme song for one of that year’s most successful films – The Crying Game. Dave’s excellent backing band The Cruisers are led by musical director and longest serving member(25 years) Brian Wood
