Chart topping '70s glam rockers touring with original members Dave Hill and Don Powell. Although perhaps best known for a certain Christmas song, with anthems like 'Coz I Luv U', 'Cum On Feel The Noize', 'Mama Weer All Crazee Now', 'Look Wot U Dun' and other misspelt classics, their incredible back catalogue truly demonstrates that Slade are for life, not just for Christmas!

70s popsters recreating the music of the 50s. Showaddywaddy were one of the biggest successes of the 70s and dominated the British charts with their releases including the smash number 1 hit Under The Moon Of Love. Wham-a-lang-a-ding-dang - you know it makes sense! Dave Bartram recently stood down as lead singer but continues to manage the band, with founding members Romeo Challenger and Rod Deas plus Paul Dixon. New members are Andy Pelos on lead vocals, Rob Hewins (drums/guitars/vocals) and Dean Loach (keyboards/vocals).

The Osmond Brothers – Alan, Wayne, Merrill, and Jay - recorded their first record album in 1963, and since that time with the addition of Donny, Marie, and Jimmy, collectively and individually, the family has had approximately 200 albums released.
The Osmonds have had a phenomenally successful recording career, having sold over 100 million albums worldwide and 59 gold and platinum award records to their credit. Their 1974 hit, ‘Love Me For A Reason’, went global again over 20 years later, when covered to huge success by Boyzone.
Merrill found success on his own and recorded several solo projects as well. Jay fronted the band with the Global hit ‘Crazy Horses’ (their biggest international hit) a song ahead of its time written by the band about pollution. The Osmonds have also proven to be very talented and successful song writers, and have penned a majority of their biggest hits – including ‘Down By The Lazy River’, ‘Let Me In’, ‘Goin’ Home’, ‘The Proud One’, ‘I’m Still Gonna Need You’, etc.
With each album recorded, The Osmonds’ talents and abilities continued to grow musically and they still know how to touch the hearts and souls of their fans. No other musical group or family can match their harmonies. Through it all, The Osmonds have never stopped recording and continue to experience great success worldwide! The best is only yet to come!
The Osmonds are still as active now as they ever were, and are still fronted by Merrill and Jay.
