The next Sunbury Music Night is on Friday 17th Aug., when the Club presents “Move It” – A Tribute to the Music of Cliff Richard & The Shadows. Believe it or not, it's 60 years this month since Cliff Richard released his first single and first hit "Move It", so to mark the occasion Sunbury Music Club's regular house band is doing a fund-raising and charity night performing a show comprising the music of Cliff Richard & The Shadows, including a number of the instrumental hits The Shadows had in their own right.
Cliff is still one of the great British rock 'n' rollers, and he has made many fine records over the years, as indeed did The Shadows, and they inspired thousands of youngsters to start playing rock 'n' roll themselves.
The band comprises core members of The Chain Gang, who perform at our Mayor's Charity nights, and features Paul Watts (vocals/rhythm guitar), Gerry Cook (lead guitar/vocals), Martin House (bass guitar/vocals), Kevin Welling (keyboards, guitar, vocals), Alan Worrell (drums).
The proceeds of the evening will be split between a contribution towards installing permanent stage lights at the club, and a donation to The Sir Cliff Richard Charitable Trust, which we thought would be an appropriate gesture.
We are aiming for this to be a real summer party night, so alert any Cliff fans that you know, put a party of friends together and make sure you get along for a fun evening - there will be plenty of songs that you all know the words to!
Venue: Sunbury Cricket Club, Lower Hampton Road, Sunbury TW16 5PS
