Their love of 1960's pop music has just brought two Coventry University students their music degrees. And it will now also be bringing them to King's Heath to perform at our “Girls on Top” session on Sunday 4 August to celebrate the great female pop stars of the 1960's.


Vocalist Melissa Gill aged 21 and pianist Hannah Maydwell aged 24 formed their duo “That Sixties Vibe” as part of their final year of studies for their Music Composition Degree. They said “We recently organised a Charity Night and a member of the audience told us they had read in the Birmingham Mail that young up and coming musicians were needed for a concert in King's Heath. We thought it would be a fantastic opportunity for us and we are very excited that we have been given the opportunity to perform at such a great event”.

King's Heath Walk of Fame Organisers Bob Prew and Ken Whittaker said “We now have a great line-up of young talent for our show. Present day female stars like Adele and Duffy owe a great deal to the trail blazing role played in the 1960's by female singers such as Dusty Springfield and Sandie Shaw. We are thrilled that Melissa and Hannah and a whole new generation want to continue to celebrate the musical legacy of the 1960's”.

That Sixties Vibe will be joined by other young female singers including Jo Rose and Barni Scott in a 3 hour show compered by top comedienne Sheila M as seen on Sky TV . And young male musicians like Robert Lane will also be paying homage to the 1960's female stars. Starting at 4 p.m. the “Girls On Top” show will take place at Fletchers in King's Heath as part of our series of sessions to commemorate the heritage of the Ritz Ballroom where many of the 1960's pop legends performed before they were famous. including Dusty Springfield, SandieVibe Joining In Shaw, Helen Shapiro and Cilla Black.
