Trelawne Manor Holiday Park 27th - 30th September 2019
Friday 27th September
When you think of the 1960’s, you think of the golden era of music with so many hits. For those fortunate to be there, the Swinging Sixties was a magical time for popular music, a truly golden age which spun hit after hit. And one of the most memorable was The McCoys’ interpretation of Hang On Sloopy, which became a monster success, and is still hugely popular today.
And it was being there, loving that wonderful time and its songs, which led to four talented British musicians fostering their special memories, preserving them for live audiences to enjoy anew today, keeping alive the McCoys name, with Hang On Sloopy and Spencer Davis’s Keep on Running being just two examples of a superb repertoire from the Sixties.
Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich
If you can Remember the Sixties, it was a decade when Music changed with Bands like the Beatles, Stones, Hollies,Kinks etc etc... A Band who were known for their very colourful stage Gear and inventive style was a Band called Dave Dee Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich.
To this present day Dozy Beaky Mick &Tich are still Touring in Europe and the UK. Their much-praised stage performance is as dynamic as ever and truly one of the best if not the best Vocal band to come out of the Sixties era.

The Pacemakers (Daytime)
In the early 60s, the nearest competitors to The Beatles in the UK were Gerry &The Pacemakers. The Pacemakers act, although constantly evolving musically, never strays far from the catchy, seminal sound of the Merseyside era. Classics such as “Don’t Let The Sun Catch You Crying ” and” Ferry ’ Cross The Mersey” are featured and, alongside other hits penned by Gerry Marsden such as “I’m The One” and “It’s Gonna Be All Right”, display an already impressive back catalogue of chart hits .
Renowned for their musicality and vocal harmonies, the band have also built up an impressive reputation for performing with and backing various celebrated artistes such as PJ Proby, Billy J Kramer, Dave Dee, Dave Berry, Wayne Fontana, Steve Ellis, Brian Poole, Tony Crane, Mike Pender, Chip Hawkes, Chris Farlowe and The Four Tops. This displays that not only are The Pacemakers a prevalent band in their own right but are also regularly requested to back many artistes from the 60s and 70s era.
New Amen Corner
Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair if you are going to a New Amen Corner concert because you'll soon be in a "Summer of Love" mood; for their music is full of that Feel Good Factor. The New Amen Corner have emerged in the last couple of years as the hottest band on the 60's circuit because of their ability to recreate so perfectly the sound and atmosphere of that era.
Their power house live show has made them one of the most exciting bands around, with their period clothing and with them encouraging fans to don 60's attire, their shows really breath life back, into what must be music's most prolific decade.
The musicians of the New Amen Corner have a musical pedigree second to none and have been band members with the likes of Robert Plant, Jeff Beck, Mike Oldfield, Alexsis Korner, Roy Wood, Alvin Stardust, Ruby Turner, Jaki Graham and Screaming Lord Sutch to name but a few!!!!
From the early 70's to the present day the band has featured Brian Huggins (front man and lead vocalist) and Peter Butt (bass and vocals). In 1973 Rick Foster joined from Chicory Tip (who had a massive hit in 1972 with "Son of My Father") and more singles followed. "Can't Stop Me Dancing" was a disco hit in Germany (with a gold disc), and the excellent Giorgio Moroder composition "Today's a Tomorrow" eased into the charts after getting on the playlist in 1974.
Drummer Stephane Booroff went for the original audition in 1969 held to put a band together a band that would go on the road and tour "Love Grows", but fate intervened and his band's van broke down and he never made it, but... now he's with the band 45 years later!
The LP "Love Grows" sold very well in Scandinavia and the band toured extensively in the Nordic countries where it remains popular to this day.

The Beat 45's (Daytime)
The Beat 45's are a four piece 1960's tribute band who strive to recreate the great sound and look of the beat group era in every way. Using period correct instruments and amplification every effort is made to ensure the band get as close to the 60's beat group experience as possible. The band consists of four experienced musicians with a shared love of the era whose aim is to play the great hits of the 60's with youthful energy and passion.
The Beat 45's pitch perfect vocal harmonies, impressive guitar playing and rock solid rhythm section are guaranteed to impress even the most demanding of audiences and have them singing and dancing along all night.
The Beatles Experience
The Beatles Experience have a full repertoire of all the Beatles' most famous songs; from early tracks such as Please Please Me and Love Me Do through to Rubber Soul and Revolver classics like Nowhere Man and Paperback Writer and right up to the likes of the seminal Hey Jude.
The Beatles Experience pride themselves on replicating the Fab 4's onstage image, sparing no expense with their equipment and outfits, the ultimate intention is to recreate the magic of the Beatles in their sixties heyday. All their equipment is vintage (except the PA system of course – that’s too risky!). The guys even replicate the personalities of the Beatles, being described by clients as honest, reliable, humorous and VERY entertaining.
With regular performances on the Cunard flagship, the Queen Mary, you can be sure these boys are at the top of their form. Sit back,close your eyes and hear the Beatles.Open your eyes and see them.
