Description

Price from: £750

The band's passion and obvious joy in the music is clear in their live act and their recordings. In addition, all of the band members are lead vocalists, enabling them to offer a range and depth of material that few other bands possess. In recent years, Go Go dancers have joined the band on stage, giving an exciting reminder of why the music of the 50’s , 60s , 70s and 80's provided so many people with so much pleasure!
The current line up is: Paul Aitken (drums and vocals) Ben Grove (rhythm guitar and vocals) Steve Morley (bass guitar and vocals) Gordon Sellar (lead guitar and vocals ) We carry a high quality PA and Lighting system as standard.
The band has played Festivals , Corporate Functions , Clubs , Weddings , Birthday Parties , Universities and Colleges in venues large and small. We have played in Europe and as far afield as Hong Kong . Recently we played to 4500 in Liverpool Arena ( video on youtube).
