The Crying Game hitmaker Dave Berry really is looking forward to something good when The Sensational 60s Experience plays his home city of Sheffield, writes Graham Walker.

It’s crammed with hits including Something Is Happening, I’m Henry The 8th, Hippy Hippy Shake, Young Girl and You Were Made For Me.

Dave Berry’s heart has always remained in the 60’s, when his top 10 singles, The Crying Game, Memphis Tennessee, Mama, Little Things and My Baby Left Me led to highly successful concert appearances at the most prestigious venues in the UK, including The London Palladium and The Royal Albert Hall.

Herman’s Hermits throughout the mid-60’s music scene proved to be a dominating force worldwide.

From 1964 the band chalked up over 23 top 20 singles, 10 hit albums, 3 major movies. Hermans Hermits as of to date have sold 75,000,000 records worldwide.

Hermans Hermits perform over 200 shows a year worldwide & now celebrating their 50th anniversary in the business Hermans Hermits are still into something good.

The Swinging Blue Jeans have a history that spans back to the 1960’s.

Over the years their hit singles Hippy Hippy Shake, You’re No Good, Good Golly Miss Molly and Don’t Make Me Over have been the bedrock of the band’s memorable live performances.

The Swinging Blue Jeans has been led by Alan Lovell, faithfully carrying on the long tradition of the band. Peter Oakman continues with the band to this day along with Jeff Bannister and Graham Hollingworth who complete the line up.

The Union Gapuk gained worldwide recognition when their first combined release Young Girl hit the number 1spot in the UK & number 2 in the USA. Next came Lady Willpower which again reached number 5 in the UK & again number 2 in the USA. Their next release Woman Woman also proved a major top 10 hit in both the UK & USA. Other hits include Over You & This Girl Is A Woman Now.

The Ivy League Perry Ford ( original member of The Ivy League ) introduced Dave Buckley into the band during the 60’s to add his unique falsetto voice creating The Ivy League sound. When most 60’s bands had faded away , Dave later joined by Jon Brennan and Mike Brice have kept The Ivy League going from strength to strength maintaining their popularity to the present day. They have built the show into one of the finest musical /comedy acts in the country .

The Ivy League guarantee to have the audience rolling in the aisles with laughter! Couple this with their hit records Funny How Love Can Be, Tossing & Turning and That’s Why I’m Crying, spells out the feel good factor at it’s very best.
