Mike Pender original voice of The Searchers
Mike Pender is the original voice of The Searchers. One of the greats to have come out of the Liverpool “Beat Boom”. His is the rich vocal talent so evident on so many of the Hit recordings that have become 60’s classics.
Everybody – even if they only have a passing interest in 60’s Music, remembers “Needles and Pins” – one of the greatest ever records to come out of the greatest ever period in Pop Music History!
There were, of course, many other ‘Hit’ recordings that feature not only Mike’s vocals, but also his equally distinctive 12-string ‘jangly’ guitar sound that became such a feature of The Searchers’ recordings. With over 50 years of success in the business Mike is still touring worldwide performing The Searchers million selling hits such as Sugar and Spice, Sweets For My Sweet, Don’t Throw Your Love Away, When You Walk In The Room and of course Needles and Pins.
Originally Chris Farlowe and The Thunderbirds started out in the late fifties. Chris later moved on to perform all over Europe & still does to this day. His hits include classics like Out Of Time, Handbags and Glad Rags (which was also released by Rod Stewart and Stereophonics as a single ) Let The Heartaches Begin, Reach Out I’ll Be There.
Herman’s Hermits throughout the mid-60’s music scene proved to be a dominating force worldwide. From 1964 the band chalked up over 23 top 20 singles, 10 hit albums, 3 major movies. Herman’s Hermits as of to date have sold 75,000,000 records worldwide. Their chart breaking hits include, Mrs Brown You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter, Silhouettes, There’s A Kind Of Hush, Henry V111, Something Is Happening & I’m Into Something Good.
Mike d’Abo former lead singer with Manfred Mann
In 1966 Mike d’Abo was the only one man who could fill Paul Jones’ shoes as front man for Manfred Mann.
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-Detached Suburban Mr James and Mighty Quinn were just three of the string of hits with the ‘new boy’ in the line-up. And, like his predecessor, Mike’s career after the disbanding of the Manfred’s 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 Handbags & Gladrags, a massive hit for Chris Farlowe.
The Fortunes. Formed in the 1960’s and producing classics such as, ‘You’ve Got Your Troubles’, ‘Here It Comes Again’ and, continuing into the seventies with more successful releases such as ‘Storm in a Teacup’ and ‘Freedom Come, Freedom Go’. These songs have stood the test of time, becoming household favourites permanently on playlists everywhere. The Fortunes remain as one of the UKs premier harmony groups, and are constantly in demand worldwide.
New Amen Corner
The band have starred alongside some of the biggest artistes to emerge from the 1960s and who continue to tour up to the present day. These include Chris Farlowe, Cliff Bennett, Mike d’Abo, Mike Pender, P.P. Arnold, Steve Ellis, Tony Crane to name but a few! There is no band more qualified than New Amen Corner to be trusted to keep the tradition of keeping the music of the 60s alive.
Hits include Bend Me Shape Me, If Paradise Is Half As Nice, He Ain’t Heavy He’s My Brother, Eloise, Whiter Shade Of Pale, to name but a few.
