Solid Silver Performances

Solid Silver Performances

The Solid Silver Sixties Show at St Albans did not disappoint us and I think it was one of the best for a couple of years.

First on were New Amen Corner who did a couple of their hits and backed all of the other solo acts.

Next was the lovable Wayne Fontana, who never fails to amuse with his banter and his voice just seems to get better and better each time. His version of 'In Dreams' was brilliant and the audience just loved him.

The Merseybeats sang some of their hits and I think the best of them was a version of the Walker Brothers'  song, 'The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore', and another whose voice just gets better, is Tony Crane.

The second half opened with Dave Berry and 'The First Of May' which was the best for us and we love Dave when he teases the audience with a slight strip!

Last on was Mike Pender from The Searchers who sang a medley of Searchers' hits. His best song  had to be 'Working Man', which went down a treat with the audience. I was not really a Mike Pender fan but have to admit, he seems to get better with time.

Then came the finale with all of the stars back on stage to sing 'Glad All Over' - everybody up dancing and nobody wanted the night to finish. I know that me and my friends went home on a high: may these shows never stop, as long as the stars can perform.
