DIG out your zoot suits, dust down your record player and get ready for the ultimate sixties extravaganza at Bridlington Spa.

The Bootleg Sixties, along with The Overtures, are coming to the Spa tomorrow, Friday, March 18.

As ever the show is built around what Sir Elton John described as “the best band of their kind in the world” – The Overtures.

The band have recently been backing American legend Lionel Richie, in front of 10,000 people in Palma, Majorca, and also brodcasted to over 10 million people live on German TV channel ZDF.

All the other usual ingredients will be there, fantastic songs, special effects, and three screens showing a blizzard of still and moving images from the finest decade in pop music’s history.

The band will be taking a musical journey through the 60s, during which the boys will not only play a collection of favourite hits of the era, but will also provide a recreation of the fabulous memories and atmosphere of the time.

Songs from all your sixties favourites will be on show, including The Animals, The Beach Boys, The Kinks, Manfred Mann, The Hollies, The Beatles, The Byrds, The Who, The Rolling Stones and many many more.

The Overtures consist of five young accomplished musicians, Den, Phil and Jamie on vocals and guitars along with Dave on drums and Chris on Keyboards.

The musicians themselves look like they had stepped right out of the 1960s, guitarist Phil particularly having a striking resemblance to George Harrison and each musician wearing clothes befitting the era from the Cuban heel, flower power shirts to Keith Moon’s striking target sweater!

For those in Bridlington who love 60s music and everything else about the era, then this is an absolute must-see show.

With amazing images of fashion and graphics, this show will blow your mind, filling you with energy and an urge to get off your seats and dance.

Tickets cost £17 and the show is due to start at 7.30pm.
