Following a really fun night and full house at the Nashville Teens gig last month, Sunbury Cricket Club carries on in similar 60s vein with the next Music Night, which is on Friday 18th May when the Club welcomes back THE 60S ALL STARS. They regularly do an early summer gig for the Club to help get the league cricket season off to a lively start, and we are delighted to have them back – they did our very first Music Night more or less exactly seven years ago so it’s very appropriate that are at the Club again with their usual programme of wall-to-wall beat era classics.
Sadly, we have to report that one of the band members, guitarist Del Mandel, died quite suddenly a couple of weeks ago after a short illness. However, as they have made clear to me, “Del would have wanted us to carry on”, and so the band will continue around their core line-up of guitarist Alan Lovell of the Swinging Blue Jeans, John Dee of The Foundations and Mick Avory of The Kinks, with other members added as available.
It’s obviously a difficult time for the band, so it would be great if we can give them a full house and a proper Sunbury atmosphere. They always give us a really fun night of Sixties hits and rock ‘n’ roll, so put a party of friends together and come out in force. Food will be available as usual.
