The Troggs were back in the limelight after the success of the cover version of 'Love is All Around' by Wet Wet Wet (for which Reg Presley received three Ivor Novello Awards) but the band initially burst onto the '60s pop scene with 'Wild Thing', which remains one of the most influential records of British pop music. The band have always been remembered for this '60s anthem, but it is just one of their many UK hits, including 'With A Girl Like You', 'I Can't Control Myself', 'Anyway That You Want Me' and 'Give It To Me'. Still featuring founder member and guitarist Chris Britton and bassist Peter Lucas (who first joined the band in 1974) and drummer Dave Maggs, who has been with the band over 25 years.

The Fourmost

The Fourmost appearing at this event

Since originally forming as the Four Jays in 1959, the Fourmost have remained continuously active on the UK and European 60’s music scene. Whilst the band’s formation has changed over the years the look and sound of the band has remained authentic and true to its heritage, contributing to its success and longevity. The Fourmost had its roots steeped in the eclectic 1960’s Mersey beat boom and was part of the Brian Epstein stable along with The Beatles, Billy J Kramer, Gerry and The Pacemakers, Cilla Black and others. The band has evolved from enjoying 1960’s chart hits such as Hello Little Girl (no.9) and A Little Loving (no.6) and less popular songs as I’m In Love (17), Baby I Need Your Lovin (24), Girls Girls Girls (33) and a cover of George Formby’s Auntie Maggie’s Remedy which failed to chart in the UK. During the 1970’s and the early 1980’s like many of its peers, The Fourmost played mainly on the cabaret circuit as it struggled to compete for appeal with disco, funk, glam rock and punk. Since the mid 1980’s The Fourmost has enjoyed a golden era as part of the wider 1960’s revival scene and now appear throughout the UK and Europe playing at theatre's, holiday parks and 60's festivals to a diverse fan base. The Fourmost are one of the most authentic 1960's bands currently on the circuit today, from their Vox amps, Rickenbacker guitars and Ludwig drums down to their Italian made slim-fitted suits and Cuban heel boots.
