- Sixties Jamming!
you part of the North East Clubland Rhythm Group scene in the Sixties?
Do you remember The Downbeats, The Zephyrs, The Panthers, The Gringos
or any of the thousands of other groups who populated the working menís
club scene in the area around this time? then read on - this concerns
We are bringing together many semi-pro local musicians and singers who
worked the North East Working Men's Club circuit during the Sixties to
meet and swap stories, songs and pictures. Tudhoe Victory Club, on the
outskirts of Spennymoor, Co.Durham, have kindly donated the use of their
excellent Concert Room on the second Thursday in every month.
The evenings are intended to be very informal - providing an opportunity
not only for the working artistes of our era to perform as we did back
then but also for performers of all ages to strut their stuff to a live
backing and in front of a live audience. Free amplification and PA equipment
will be provided!
In The Day' - Guided London Walks
One of our walks takes you around Soho locations that
played a big part in the roots of the swinging sixties. It'll
take about 2 hours - and if you're of that era, the memories will
come flooding back to remind you of that special time in your life.
We'll take you to the birthplace of British rock and roll, the street
that turned the fashion world on its head and to the influential sites
of the day where you'll hear many anecdotes about those amazing years
that helped shape the cultural landscape of the nation.
We've been to several now - these are super tours and highly recommended!
Holiday Rock are the leading organisers in good time Rock'n'Roll
and Modern Jive events, specialising in holidays and weekend breaks,

is top class.
