The Searchers and Hollies ExperienceJul 27 2019

The Best of Both Worlds brings to the stage the magical hits of two legendary harmony bands. Each hit brings back a memory of the most high energy decade in pop music history.

The Searchers, from Liverpool, made their debut with the rise of MerseyBeat. Their very first recording Sweets For My Sweet went to number 1 in the charts. This was followed at No.2 by their third single Sugar And Spice. They then went on to have many more memorable chart hits. Who can forget Needles And Pins and When You Walk In The Room?

The Hollies, from Manchester, rose on the back of their Merseybeat-inspired sound, and became known as the most successful British singles band ever, having had chart hits in every decade since the 60s.  Catchy, melodic tunes are their trademark and they have had phenominal chart success. Stay, I Can't Let Go, Bus Stop, Sorry Suzanne, He Ain't Heavy He's My Brother, Here I Go Again, Just One Look and the haunting Air That I Breathe are just a few of their hits.

The Searchers and Hollies Experience is performed by the FOD Band who have been together since 1983. They have a particular insight into the Searchers music having backed Tony Jackson, the original lead singer of The Searchers. The FOD Band love the harmonies and the melodic material these groups recorded. This is what motivated them to combine the two groups hits into this exciting 2 hour tribute show featuring over 30 hit songs.
