Mike Pender MBE To Play Sensational 60s Experience!
The tour includes Searchers founder member Mike Pender MBE who formed the band with John McNally as a Skiffle group in Liverpool during 1959.
As they went into the 60’s, The Searchers turned to mainstream pop, rivalled only by The Beatles and Gerry and The Pacemakers. The band notched up 6 UK top ten hits with 3 of those reaching number one. Their many hits included Needles and Pins, Don’t Throw Your Love Away, Sweets For My Sweet and When You Walk In The Room.
Hold Tight – It’s Dozy Beaky, Mick and Tich!
Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich have also reunited to perform some of their greatest hits! Along with the late Dave Dee, the band formed in 1961 as Dave Dee and The Bostons. A name-change to Dave Dee, Dozy Beaky Mick and Tich in 1964, saw the beginning of success leading to hits including Hold Tight! and Bend It!
In 1966, Dave Dee, Dozy Beaky Mick and Tich were in the charts for 50 weeks out of 52, while in 1967, Germany record sales outsold both The Rolling Stones and The Beatles. Further hits included Zabadak! and The Legend of Xanadu.
Hits From The Trems, The Fortunes and The Dakotas
The Sensational 60s Experience also features The Trems (featuring former members of The Tremeloes), The Fortunes and The Dakotas. All three bands feature current line-ups who faithfully recreate hits such as Do You Love Me, Silence is Golden, Storm in A Teacup, You’ve Got Your Troubles, Little Children and The Cruel Sea.
