Doug Perkins and The Spectaculars, Live at Darwen Library Theatre 22/10/16
Sat 22 October 2016, 19:00 – 22:00 BST
A four piece band who take their inspiration from the pioneers of Rock 'n' Roll. Recreating and reinventing the unique sound of the 1950's as they emulate the greats from Presley to Perkins and Cochran to Cash.
Harking back to a time when the size of the turn ups on your jeans and how much grease you could pile in your hair determined your stature, they bring you a mixture of original material, authentic 50's covers and modern songs with a rockabilly vibe.
A night of the finest 50's Rock and Roll and Rockabilly. Returning to DARWEN!
