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.
Hailing from Birmingham, England, The Fortunes first came to prominence and international acclaim during that Golden Era of Popular Music – the ‘swinging’ sixties!
The result was a succession of distinctive and distinguished hit records including ‘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.
The Swinging Blue Jeans
The Swinging Blue Jeans were originally founded by Ray Ennis and Les Braid. In 1962, they were signed to a recording contract by HMV Records and their debut single It’s Too Late Now in 1963 just crept into the British charts at Number 30. Their next single Hippy Hippy Shake crashed into the Hit Parade in 1964 and just fell short of the Number 1 slot. Their follow-up release, Good Golly Miss Molly followed suit and their next single You’re No Good reached Number 3 in Britain. They famously engaged in a punch up with the Rolling Stones at the BBC studios during recording of the first show of Top of the Pops as a result of an argument over a ball point pen for signing autographs.
Today the band is fronted by Alan Lovell and along with Peter Oakman, Jeff Bannister and Graham Hollingworth, continue touring the UK theatres with The Sensational 60’s Experience.
The Dakotas were formed in Manchester in 1960, where they had the reputation of being one of the most professional groups in the area. They were also one of the first Manchester bands to appear at the Cavern Club in Liverpool. In 1962, at the suggestion of Paul McCartney and John Lennon, Brian Epstein teamed the band up with Billy J Kramer and they were signed up to EMI’s Parlophone label. Their first hit was a Lennon/McCartney song, “Do You Want to Know a Secret” which reached No.2 in 1963. “Bad to Me” made the No.1 spot, then “I’ll Keep You Satisfied” and “From a Window” both went into the Top 10. “Little Children” gave the band a second No.1 in the spring of 1964. Later that year, both “Bad To me” and “Little Children” reached the American Top 10, prompting the group to appear in the USA.
