The new Amen Corner have emerged in the last couple of years as arguably the hottest band on the 60’s circuit. The band has an unrivalled ability to so perfectly recreate the sound and atmosphere of that momentous period 50 years ago when music sent good vibrations across the world.
The original Amen Corner was one of the biggest influences on the sixties pop scene to ever come out of Wales. Creating their own unique brand of music, a mixture of mod, psychedelic power pop, heavy horns, swirling Hammond organ and distinctive voice of Andy Fairweather-Low, their power house live show made them one of the most exciting bands around at the time.
With million seller hits like “Gin House”, “Bend Me Shape Me”, “If Paradise was half as Nice”, “High in the Sky”, & “Hello Suzie” they soon became a household name in the late sixties. Unfortunately, due to the bands premature demise at the end of 1969, the legacy of this truly great band had become somewhat forgotten.
The musicians of the New Amen Corner have a musical pedigree second to none and have been band members with the likes of Screaming Lord Sutch, The Symbols, Jeff Beck, Alexsis Korner, Roy Wood, Robert Plant, Alvin Stardust, Ruby Turner, Mike Oldfield and Jaki Graham to name but a few!
The reputation that the band has built of the past ten years has seen them take the stage with such sixties icons as Wayne Fontana, Steve Ellis, Cliff Bennett, Mike Pender, Brian Hyland, Chip Hawkes, Tony Crane, Peter Noone, PP Arnold, Chris Farlowe and Mike d’Abo.
The Soul Survivors have been the UKs leading leading exponents of classic soul and good old Brisitsh rhythm and blues for over thirty years now. Taking inspiration from the likes of Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, Sam & Dave and Wilson Pickett, the Souls deliver time after time with a perfect blend of authenticity and enthusiasm.
Taking the show right up to date in 2018, it also features modern classics from ARTISTS SUCH AS Bruno Mars, Pharrell and Nile Rodgers. Available from a 4 – 7 piece band, you're guaranteed a night of floor filling, foot stomping classics from the first song ‘til the last.

In 1966, Mike d'Abo was seen as the only man to fill Paul Jones' shoes. Already attracting attention with his group, A Band Of Angels, Mike was thrust into a wider limelight with the Manfreds and the well oiled hit machine kept rolling on. Just Like A Woman, Semi-Detatched Suburban Mr James and Mighty Quinn were just three of the string of hits with the 'new boy' in the lineup.
Like his predecessor, Mike's career after the disbanding on the Manfreds in 1969 lost none of its momentum. He'd already proved his impressive skill as a songwriter by composing Build Me Up Buttercup for the Foundations and Hanbags And Gladrags, a huge number one hit for Chris Farlowe.
Inspired by the likes of Lonnie Donegan, Farlowes musical career began in 1957 with The John Henry Skiffle band, before he went on to join The Johnny Burns Rhythm and Blues Quartet in 1958. He met guitarist Bob Taylor in 1959 and, through Taylor joined The Thunderbirds who went on to record five singles for the Columbia label. He released a cover version on Stormy Monday Blues under the pseudonym Little Joe Cook.
Chris then moved to Andrew Loog Oldhams Immediate label and recorded eleven singles, five of which being Rolling Stones songs, including Paint It Black, Satisfaction, Think, Ride On Baby and the smash hit, Out Of Time, number one the week England won the World Cup. Saturday 30th July 2016 saw Chris appear live at Wembley Arena performing Out Of Time to 14,000 people to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Englands World Cup win and his Number one hit.
He recorded four more singles after his number one, the best known being the Mike d'Abo penned classic, Handbags and Gladrags - also a hit for Rod Stewart and The Stereophonics.
As well as touring with New Amen Corner, Chris has made guest appearances with a host of stars past and present. The late Otis Redding, Tom Jones, Alice cooper and his close personal friend Van Morrison.
