The next Music Night at the Sunbury Cricket Club is on Friday 13th April, when the Clubs welcomes back THE NASHVILLE TEENS. They couldn’t do their usual New Year spot this year, so we’re very happy to have for an Easter show this time. They are one of the great names from the ‘60s when they had two memorable Top Ten hits in 1964 with “Tobacco Road” and “Google Eye”. They have played storming gigs to kick off the last three years, so we can expect another rousing evening this time around.
The line-up features their original lead singer Ray Phillips, who has had an unbroken half-century career with the band, as well as making solo records and performing with other line-ups like the British Invasion All-Stars with members of The Yardbirds, Creation and Downliners Sect. With him in the current Nashville Teens is a line-up of seasoned performers, including Colin Pattenden, member of Manfred Mann’s Earth Band when they had their big hits back in the 70s, on bass, with Simon Spratley of The Ian Campbell Blues Band on keyboards, Ken Osborn from Levee Camp Moan on guitar, Adam Russel on harmonica and Adrian ‘Spud’ Metcalf on drums.
It will be another night of classic ‘60s R&B, featuring in Ray one of the great voices of the beat era. It’s also a special occasion as their double CD & DVD “Live At The Nag’s Head 1983” is released on 23rd March and will be on sale. There’s more information at www.Nashville-Teens.com.
