The 60s Weekend comes to Ilfracombe Holiday Park Sept 30th-3rd Oct 2016.
Union Gap UK are a 60s show band performing the hits of Gary Puckett and the Union Gap including Young Girl, Lady Willpower, Woman Woman plus many more classic songs from the 1960s.
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.
The New Honeycombs evolved as a continuation of the 60's chart topping group "The Honeycombs". The present line up have all worked with one of the founder members for some time, performing at venues and theatres around the country. These Four great musicians and vocalists recreate the silver sounds of the Sixties especially the 'The Honeycombs' hits, including the worldwide Number One 'Have I The Right'
The New Amen Corner
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. 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!
New 60s All Stars
New 60s All Stars are a 60s tribute band performing hits from the 60s with the authentic sound of the 60's in a modern approach.
A great British pop harmony group whose international hits Hitchin' a Ride and Early in the Morning both sold over a million copies each worldwide and earned them two Gold Discs. It all started in England in 1968 when their debut single "I Live for the Sun" climbed to number 20 in the British charts, staying there for nine weeks, and at the same time reaching number 5 in the Australian Top Ten. Their follow up single "Summer Morning" bubbled under in Britain but became a small hit in the USA.
Hailing from Birmingham, England, The Fortunes first came to prominence and international acclaim during that Golden Era of Popular Music - the 'swinging' mid-sixties. Following on in the wake of Merseybeat, and the R&B of The Stones, etc, The Fortunes added another dimension to the sound of the classic pop song with their special ingredients of sophisticated orchestration, dual lead vocals, and stylish counter-melodies.
