The Sensational 60s’ Experience at Marina Theatre, Lowestoft

Review published in the Eastern Daily Press, 2 December 2014

A packed audience, mainly of a certain age, rocked and rolled the The Marina Theatre, Lowestoft, revelling in a nostalgic trip down Memory Lane.

This 1960s’ experience showcases groups, some with surviving original members, performing songs from their own hit catalogues and sampling the massive range of timeless classics which were the cultural hallmark of that iconic decade, when the world was a very different place.

Alan Mosca of Freddie and the Dreamers compered. Dave Berry proved himself much the same showman and song interpreter who first hit the charts fifty years ago.

The Ivy League, Union Gap UK, The Swinging Blue Jeans and Herman’s Hermits entertained with banter and jokes as well as melodies, harmonies and lyrics from the era. There was self-deprecating humour about aging, such as, ‘In the 1960s, everyone took drugs; now we take medication.’

The longevity of these skilled performers, who have worked Britain’s stages for half a century, is an inspiration. Old rockers never fade away and they’ll be back a year from now – catch them if you can!
