The Berries - A Tribute To The Sixties tour dates
On 6 February 1968, one of the UK's most endearing number ones - Everlasting Love - hit the top of the charts. The group behind it were called Love Affair fronted by singer Steve Ellis who was acknowledged as having one of the best soul-rock voices in the business. With their sharp Mod looks and a host of national TV appearances behind them, Love Affair found themselves enjoying the kind of exposure and adulation that was being afforded to the likes of the Beatles and Rolling Stones.
Their version of Everlasting Love remains a stone-cold classic, one which not only reached number one in the UK, but went Top 10 in 7 other countries and has amassed over 10 million sales to date. 2018 marked the 50th anniversary of Everlasting Love and Steve Ellis remains the only original member of the record to still be performing it.
Steve continues to record and tour with his solo material, plus occasionally hits the road under the name of Steve Ellis' Love Affair, and has once again found himself being cited as a Mod hero to a new generation of fans

Vanity Fare tour dates
When you think of the 1960’s, you think of the golden era of music with so many hits.
For those fortunate to be there, the Swinging Sixties was a magical time for popular music, a truly golden age which spun hit after hit.
And one of the most memorable was The McCoys’ interpretation of Hang On Sloopy, which became a monster success, and is still hugely popular today.
And it was being there, loving that wonderful time and its songs, which led to four talented British musicians fostering their special memories, preserving them for live audiences to enjoy anew today, keeping alive the McCoys name, with Hang On Sloopy and Spencer Davis’s Keep on Running being just two examples of a superb repertoire from the Sixties.

For many years now The Union Gap UK has gained great success on the 60's circuit playing at all the major festivals, theatres, holiday centres etc throughout the UK and Europe. The band has worked extensively to put together a repertoire of classic songs from the '60s and '70s, which they perform either in the original form or in their own unique style – many of which appear on their various studio albums. The band have also devoted a great deal of time and effort to perfect their concert sound, which is always complimented upon wherever they appear. The Union Gap UK today are:Tom Harding, Simon Paul, Mike Ellis and Paul Grogan.

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.
