Without doubt the most explosive 60s show touring the UK, for one night only! With a brand new production for 2017; The Sensational 60s Experience. Five legendary names take to the stage and deliver to you a night never to be forgotten. With the definite feel good factor this is must see 60s show for 2017. Starring Mike Pender; the original voice of The Searchers, Chris Farlowe, Herman’s Hermits, The Fortunes and The New Amen Corner. Hits include 'Needles and Pins', 'Out Of Time', 'I’m Into Something Good', 'Storm In A Tea Cup', 'Bend Me Shape Me' plus many more. Step back in time to when pop music was at its very best.

Now more than ever the genuine article, Mike Pender is the voice of The Searchers, one of the greats to have come out of the Liverpool 'Beat Boom'. His is the rich vocal talent so evident on so many of the hit recordings that have become 60s classics.

Everybody, even if they only have a passing interest in 60s music, remembers 'Needles and Pins', one of the greatest ever records to come out of the greatest ever period in pop music history!

There were, of course, many other hit recordings that feature not only Mike's vocals, but also his equally distinctive 12-string jangly guitar sound that became such a feature of The Searchers' recordings. With over 50 years of success in the business Mike is still touring worldwide performing The Searchers' million selling hits such as 'Sugar and Spice', 'Sweets For My Sweet', 'Don’t Throw Your Love Away', 'When You Walk In The Room' and of course 'Needles and Pins'.

Chris Farlowe, originally Chris Farlowe and The Thunderbirds, started out in the late 50s. Chris later moved on to perform all over Europe and still does to this day. His hits include classics like 'Out Of Time', 'Let The Heartaches Begin', 'Reach Out I’ll Be There' and 'Handbags and Glad Rags', which was also released by Rod Stewart as a single.

Herman’s Hermits throughout the mid 60s music scene proved to be a dominating force worldwide. From 1964 the band chalked up over 23 top 20 singles, 10 hit albums and 3 major movies. Herman's Hermits to date have sold 75 million records worldwide. Their chart-breaking hits include 'Mrs Brown You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter', 'Silhouettes', 'There’s A Kind Of Hush', 'Henry VIII', 'Something Is Happening' and 'I’m Into Something Good'.

The Fortunes formed in the 60s and producing classics such as ‘You’ve Got Your Troubles’ and ‘Here It Comes Again’, continuing into the 70s with more successful releases such as 'Storm in a Teacup' and 'Freedom Come, Freedom Go'. These songs have stood the test of time, becoming household favourites permanently on playlists everywhere. The Fortunes remain one of the UK's premier harmony groups, and are constantly in demand worldwide.

The New Amen Corner are a force to be reckoned with on any stage throughout Europe, entertaining with classics such as 'If Paradise Is Half As Nice' and 'Bend Me Shape Me'.
