The Best of Both Worlds
The best of both worlds brings to the stage the magical hits of two legendary harmony bands. Each hit brings back a memory of the most high energy decade in pop music history.
The Searchers, from Liverpool, made their debut with the rise of MerseyBeat. and became part of the British invasion of the American charts alongside The Beatles. Their very first recording Sweets For My Sweet went to number 1 in the charts. Such hits as Sugar and Spice, Needles And Pins and When You Walk In The Room quickly followed.
The Hollies, from Manchester played many of the same venues as the Mersey groups and had chart hits in every decade since the 60s: Stay, I Can`t Let Go, Bus Stop, Sorry Suzanne, He Ain`t Heavy He`s My Brother, Here I Go Again, Just One Look and the haunting Air That I Breathe are just a few.
The Searchers and Hollies Experience is performed by the FOD Band who have been together since 1983 and have previously backed Tony Jackson, the original lead singer of The Searchers when Tony returned to performing in the 90s. The FOD band have also appeared with Eric Haydock’s Hollies, the band that Haydock, the original Hollies bass guitarist, formed in the 1990s.
