Six legendary names from the 1960s are set to take to the stage in Lynn tomorrow with a 50th anniversary tour 
extravaganza.

The Sensational 60s Experience will come to Lynn’s Corn Exchange, for a night of music from Herman’s Hermits, the Swinging Blue Jeans, Dave Berry, the Union Gap UK, the Ivy League and Alan Mosca, from Freddie and the Dreamers.

This line-up is crammed with nostalgia and hits such as I’m Into Something Good, Hippy Hippy Shake, The Crying Game, This Girl Is A Woman Now, That’s Why I’m Crying and You Were Made For Me.

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, three major movies. Herman’s Hermits as of to date have sold 75,000,000 records worldwide, perform over 200 shows a year worldwide and now celebrating their 50th anniversary in the business.

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

Dave Berry’s heart has always remained in the 60s, when his top 10 singles led to highly successful concert appearances at the most prestigious venues throughout the United Kingdom. Two of which have hosted the biggest names in show business from all around the world, these being The London Palladium and The Royal Albert Hall.

The Union Gap gained worldwide recognition when their first combined release Young Girl hit No1 in the UK and two in the USA. Next came Lady Willpower, which again reached No5 in the UK and again two in the USA.

The Ivy League’s Perry Ford introduced Dave Buckley into the band during the 60s 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.
