Andy Matthews:- singer/bassist.  Andy first hit the stage, aged 12, as a drummer before progressing to vocals in his early 20s as a BlueCoat Entertainer for Warner Holidays. Following this hi de hi gig, he took to the stage once more as an actor before moving into Film and TV in having roles in Eastenders, The Bill, Inspector Morse and the odd James Bond film.  Andy formed his first semi pro band in 1992 and played the circuit for 9 years until TV opened its doors again and he headed into the spooky world of TV presenting in series such as Ghost Detectives UKTV, Haunted Homes ITV, culminating with his own 10 part TV series "Northern Irelands Greatest Haunts" which he created and presented for BBC1 NI.

​The worldwide number one record TELSTAR performed by the classic 1962 lineup is still a huge selling record in these modern times, the Tornados today do not only play the famous instrumentals but also perform hits by the stars that the Tornados  backed during the sixties, Billy Fury, John Leyton, Heinz as well as 3 part close harmonies and old time rock n roll hits. Complete with authentic equipment.

FOURMOST - Since originally forming as the Four Jays in 1959, the Fourmost have remained continuously active on the UK and European 60s music scene. Whilst the band’s formation has changed over the years the look and sound of the band has remained authentic and true to its heritage, contributing to its success and longevity.  The Fourmost had its roots steeped in the eclectic 1960s Mersey beat boom and was part of the Brian Epstein stable along with The Beatles, Billy J Kramer, Gerry and The Pacemakers and others. The band has evolved from enjoying 1960s chart hits such as Hello Little Girl (no.9) and A Little Loving (no.6) and less popular songs as Baby I Need Your Lovin, Here There and Everywhere and a cover of George Formby’s Auntie Maggie’s Remedy.During the 1970s and the early 1980s like many of its peers, The Fourmost played mainly on the cabaret circuit as it struggled to compete for appeal with disco, funk, glam rock and punk.Since the mid 1980s The Fourmost has enjoyed a golden era as part of the wider 1960s revival scene and now appear throughout the UK and Europe playing at theatre's, holiday parks and 60s festivals to a diverse fan base.The Fourmost are one of the most authentic 1960's bands currently on the circuit today, from their Vox amps, Rickenbacker guitars and Ludwig drums down to their Italian made slim fitted suits and Cuban heel boots.

THIS show is bound to be popular with so many great acts performing so many memorable hits, so book early!
