|Founding member John - holding the guitar|
Originally founded in Liverpool back in 1959 by John McNally and Mike Pender, the four piece group changed members over the successive years. But John McNally, the driving force remains as the sole original member of the group.
They are one of many successful "Merseybeat" groups to hail from the area - others included the Beatles, the Hollies, the Swinging Bluejeans and Gerry and the Pacemakers but they are the ones still going strong over 50 years on !
At the beginning of April they were still performing in New Zeland then flew back to the UK to start their UK tour which began on11th April. They have shows lined up right until 31st December - in fact they are not flying into Alicante until a few hours before the show starts! How and where they get the energy from is a mystery....
Those lucky enough to be going to the Benidorm performance will be hoping to hear many of their classics such as "Needles and Pins" - they were the second group after the Beatles to have a hit in the United States back in 1964 and with that song, "Sweets for my Sweet", "When You Walk in the Room", "Sugar and Spice" and "Don´t Throw Your Love Away"....
A few tickets are still available and cost 25 euros - this is for the show only. For those that would like to make a night of it, they will have a special 8 euro menu offering either fish or chicken with chips. Door open at 7.30pm and the show will start at 8.30pm, giving you plenty of time to order and eat and should finish around 11pm.
There will also be a supporting act by way of Benidorm´s popular "One Vision" (We will Rock you) - what an amazing experience for them to be performing alongside such a legendary group.
Enjoy the show - it´s sure to be a great night. If you want to be certain of securing tickets call the box office on 965 851 660
