Girls On Top at Fletchers on Sunday 15 April

Girl singers were frequently on top of the 1960's pop charts.

When The Beatles first played the Ritz Ballroom they did so by taking a break from The Helen Shapiro Tour where they were only fourth on the bill!

Starting at 3 p.m. come and spend a great Lazy Sunday Afternoon at Fletchers listening to some top class female performers celebrate  the hits of the traiblazing women of the 1960's.

£4.40 from www.wegottickets.com/event/422150

A rare chance to hear ex-Kinks members perform all their greatest hits in the intimate atmosphere of the Hare & Hounds will occur on Sunday 20 May to commemorate the 52nd Anniversary of The Kinks' Birmingham Debut.

The Kinks were one of the greatest and most influential groups of all time scoring hit after hit from the 1960's onwards until they split up in 1996.

Expect to hear all The Kinks' hits including “You Really Got Me”, “Dedicated Follower of Fashion”, “Sunny Afternoon”, “Lola”, “Waterloo Sunset”, “Victoria”, “Apeman”, “Days” and “Come Dancing”.

The evening concert will conclude a one day KINKS HEATH FEST that will jointly celebrate the 52nd Anniversary of The Kinks performing next door to the Hare & Hounds at the now sadly burnt down Ritz Ballroom and the debut there on bass guitar of John “Nobby” Dalton who will be returning to King's Heath as a member of The Kast Off Kinks.

From 3 pm to 6pm many fine local musicians will play their favourite Kinks songs at a Kinda Kinks Session at Fletchers Bar in York Road.

From 7 pm the doors will open across the road at the Hare & Hounds for an evening concert by The Kast Off Kinks.

The Kast Off Kinks are not a tribute band but a great line-up of ex-Kinks members:-

Mick Avory on drums and vocals who also played at the 1966 Ritz gig

John Dalton on bass guitar and vocals

Ian Gibbons on keyboards and vocals plus

Dave Clarke on lead guitar and vocals who previously worked with The Beach Boys.

Formed by Mick Avory to keep the music of The Kinks alive, the Kast Off Kinks regularly perform at major venues throughout Europe.

"All of the Kast Off Kinks have a long association with one of the most successful British bands ever and set about the seemingly bottomless goldmine of classic pop songs with ... unbridled glee"

(Bournemouth Echo)

“A full house, and a standing ovation. To anyone wondering about going, do not hesitate”

(The Stables, Milton Keynes)

“ A great night's entertainment … made up of both classic hits and album tracks”

(Sussex Express)

This should really prove to be a great night commemorating a key event in King's Heath's musical heritage.
