Brum Beat rock 'n' roll legends Dave Lacey and Buddies to play Fletchers on Sunday 7 December

Come and hear 1960's Brum Beat legendary singer Dave Lacey with his current group Buddies in a special three hour concert at Fletchers on Sunday 7 December. Dave Lacey and the Corvettes were regulars at King's Heath's Ritz Ballroom and other clubs on the Regan circuit in the 1960's . Now  Dave along with The Corvettes' rhythm guitarist Roy Pinson and drummer John Dudley will return to  King's Heath and be joined on stage at Fletchers by lead guitarist Dave Brettell and bass guitarist Anthony Smith in a great line up known as Dave Lacey and Buddies. Originally formed to play Buddy Holly songs, the hugely popular Stourbridge based group now play a fantastic selection of great rock 'n' roll songs from the late 1950's onwards.

Dave Lacey and the Corvettes were regulars at the Regan owned Plazas in Old Hill and Handsworth in the 1960's but frequently doubled up by playing at the Ritz Ballroom on the same night as well. They supported many of the greatest artists of  the 1960's including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Animals, Bill Haley and Jerry Lee Lewis. With the Regans acting as their agents, they performed 3 songs on the famous Brum Beat album released by Decca and had a single "That's What They All Say", penned by Dave Lacey, released on the Phillips label.

Starting at 3 p.m. Dave Lacy and Buddies will appear as the main act in the latest of our popular Lazy Sunday Afternoon Sessions on Sunday 7 December. Support will be provided by the up and coming acoustic duo Trailing Tales performing a variety of "feel good" songs.

Advance tickets cost just £3 from the Kitchen Garden Cafe or www.wegottickets.com. Any remaining tickets will cost £4 on the door.
