Night of pure Sixties magic
Published 16/12/13

ALAN MOSCA from Freddie and the Dreamers is hosting a night of pure swinging Sixties nostalgia at the Hexagon in February.

The veteran muso will be introducing the latest touring production of The Sensational Sixties Experience at the Reading venue on Friday, February 21.

The line-up features four original Sixties acts singing recognisable hits from the era. Topping the bill is the Marmalade, described as one of the most unashamedly commercial bands of the decade.

Their number one hit, Ob La Di Ob La Da will feature high on the list of their evening repertoire, followed by hits such as Cousin Norman, Back On The Road and Falling Apart At The Seams.

The band is joined in the evening’s entertainment by the Swinging Blue Jeans, who will be singing their hit Hippy Hippy Shake as well as Good Golly Miss Molly and Don’t Make Me Over.

Also on the bill are Steve Ellis’ Love Affair, who stormed the charts in 1967 with Everlasting Love, and Chris Farlowe, who started out as lead singer with the Thunderbirds in the late Fifites and went on to perform solo throughout Europe.

His most famous numbers include Let The Heartaches Begin and Reach Out I’ll Be There.
