A special concert is to be held on Sunday 6 April 2014 to commemorate the first anniversary of the fire that destroyed the former Ritz Ballroom on King's Heath's York Road.

The Ballroom hosted legendary performances by top rock 'n' roll artists like Bill Haley, Gene Vincent and Jerry Lee Lewis, reggae star Jimmy Cliff and all the major groups of the 1960's including The Beatles, The Move, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks and Pink Floyd.

After the death of owners Ma and Pa Regan, the Ballroom was converted into a Cash Converters store before it was gutted by fire early on the morning of 27 March 2013.

Starting at 3 p.m. a special 3 hour commemorative concert will now be held on Sunday 6th April at Fletchers Bar directly opposite the burnt out ballroom featuring the award winning West Midlands group Out of The Shadows who will perform some of the greatest pop songs and instrumentals from the late 1950's onwards.

Expect to hear a great collection of covers of classic pop songs including Eddie Cochran's “Summertime Blues”, Cliff Richard's “I Could Easily Fall In Love With You” and Dire Straits' ”Walk Of Life” along with a string of top instrumental hits including “Cavatina – Theme From The Deer Hunter" and The Shadows' “Apache” and “Wonderful Land”

Hailing from Stourbridge, Out of The Shadows have regularly been voted Top Club Act by local club entertainment officers and audience members.

Out Of The Shadows will be supported by the young and very talented school student and singer/songwriter Harriet Harkcom.

Advance tickets cost £3 from Kitchen Garden Cafe or £3 + booking fee from www.wegotickets.com/event/264172

Any remaining tickets will cost £4 on the door.
