Kenton Theatre – David Hamilton’s Rock and Roll Back The Years

Kenton Theatre – David Hamilton’s Rock and Roll Back The Years

A great evening last night, didn’t know what to expect when we booked the show. But the music from the 50s and 60s sung well turned out to be a real tonic.


The group playing were called The Fugitives, they were excellent and played superbly. At one stage the keyboard player was gesticulating to the sound engineer, because his keyboard was not audible.  That was soon fixed.  I used to work as a sound recordist, and must say the sound quality on stage was exceptional, on the voice and musical side. The only time there was distortion was on the feed back speakers, during Ike and Tina Turner’s River Deep and Mountain High!


The Tiffany Girls were accomplished singers. Singing songs by many female artists, including Lulu, Cilla Black, the Seekers, Supremes, and so many more!


David Hamilton and the performers all seemed to enjoy the show. The audience lapped it up, clapped along and even danced in the aisles in the second half!


Ash, the male singer was equally talented, and sang songs by Elvis, the Beatles, and many more!  I like the seven little girls song, when the band donned ladies wigs and camped things up!


Ash chatting to David on the stage. There were a lot of costume changes for the group and singers.


Above, rather blurred is a shot of one of the Tiffany Girls singing Shout!   The girls also did Martha Reeves and the Vandellas’ dancing in the street and Morning Town Ride. They had learn Morning Town ride when Ed Stewart died. Ed’s wife was in the audience so they sang it tonight, very beautifully.

David Hamilton joins in the singing towards the second half of the performance, and sang very well indeed!
