TOP sixties band, The Swinging Blue Jeans, are appearing at Harpenden Public Halls tomorrow night (Friday).

Still featuring stalwarts Alan Lovell on lead vocals/lead guitar and Pete Oakman, bass/vocals, who were with the group on the Solid Silver 60s tour last year, the band stormed the charts in 1963 with Hippy Hippy Shake going to number one in many countries.

Other major hits included Good Golly Miss Molly, You’re No Good, It’s Too Late Now and Don’t Make Me Over.

The band also serve up a taste of Joe Brown and The Bruvvers because Pete was the leader of The Bruvvers and wrote Joe’s number one A Picture of You.

The other two Swinging Blue Jeans are Jeff Bannister on keyboards/vocals and Graham Hollingworth on drums.

Tickets are £16.50 with concessions £14.50, available from the box office on 01582 767525 or go to
