Event description

Description

Showaddywaddy were formed in 1973 in Leicester. Very soon after they formed, the band were asked if they wanted to be on TV - the show was "New Faces". They won one programme in the series and were runners-up in the "All Winners Final" which was broadcast just before new year’s eve 1973. This led to various record companies racing to sign them up. However they had already signed to Bell Records, (the Bay City Rollers and Gary Glitter were also signed to the signed to the same label).

The band’s first single, ‘Hey Rock And Roll’ was released on 19th April 1974 and reached number two in the UK charts. Showaddywaddy then hit the UK charts another 22 times until late 1982. These included 10 Top-Ten singles and one number one, racking up a total on 209 weeks in the singles chart - one of the most successful singles groups of all time.

With this combination of instrument players - ie two of everything - Showaddywaddy had great flexibility on stage with four or five members playing the instruments and the others doing the dance routines. At their peak, they were doing 250 gigs a year, often gigging 7 days a week, and playing both afternoon and evening performances on the same day - the guys certainly put a lot of work in!

2013 saw Showaddywaddy achieve their 40th anniversary. Six years on and Showaddywaddy are still at the top of their game, touring the UK to the delight of thousands who see them each year.

Prepare to dance until you drop with the best Rock adn Roll band in the UK.

Doors and bars open at 7.00pm, first on stage action will be at 8.00pm.

There is a minimum age limit of 16 for this event.
