On February 7, 1964 The Beatles touched down at John F. Kennedy International Airport. Thus began the British Invasion and the most exciting era of music in the 20th century! Since 1987, The Swinging Sixties have been recreating the sounds, fun and excitement of groups such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Monkees and The Easybeats, as well as divas such as Cilla Black, Dusty Springfield and Lulu. Dressed in tailor made 60’s suits with all the accoutrements and armed with Rickenbacker and Gretsch guitars and Vox amps to reproduce magic sounds, this entertaining and authentic group delivers nothing less than the sheer excitement that was prevalent at live shows of the era. A night with The Swinging Sixties appeals to audiences of all ages from Generation Y through to the Baby Boomers.

BIO

 

The Swinging Sixties concept was conceived back in 1987. Rather than just looking and sounding like a 60's band, why not recreate all the atmosphere, fun and hysteria that was the 60's, popular music's greatest decade, and take an audience to an incredible high and leave them there! The band was extremely busy over it's first decade, with many residencies in and around the Sydney pub and club circuit, including an 8 year continuous Sunday residency at the iconic Woolloomooloo Bay Hotel, as well as being in demand for numerous corporate and private engagements.

Continuously playing for the past 3 decades, The Swinging Sixties have built a very strong reputation for their ability to engage their audience like no other group of its kind. Their latest production, The Swinging Sixties Show takes this audience participation to yet another level. This highly entertaining non-stop 2.5 hour auditorium spectacular features around 40 hits from music's most exciting era, with 12 fully choreographed dance numbers featuring the gorgeous Sixties A Go Go Girls. The Swinging Sixties Show is a fun-filled night offering a great time for everyone!

THE sixties sing-along

bobby.jpg
 
 

As well as being a heck of a lot of fun, there is much scientific evidence to support the idea that a sing-along is very beneficial for the body, mind and soul. Many great unforgettable sing-along songs were recorded in the 60's decade. Seasoned entertainer and Swinging Sixties frontman Bobby Benton, has over 30 years refined and perfected the ultimate 60's sing-a-long. There is no need for any audience member to worry if they don't know the lyrics, as alongside Bobby on stage is a huge 120" screen filled with all the lyrics as well as imagery that has been carefully chosen to go with each and every song. Everyone is guaranteed to find themselves singing and clapping along, and having a great time, by the first chorus of the first number at the all new Sixties Sing-along!!!

Sing-along Songs include:

Hey Jude - The Beatles

Daydream Believer - The Monkees

With A Little Help From My Friends - The Beatles

Pretty Woman - Roy Orbison

Penny Lane - The Beatles

Ferry Cross The Mersey - Gerry & The Pacemakers

Ruby Tuesday - The Rolling Stones

Waterloo Sunset - The Kinks

When I'm Sixty-Four - The Beatles

Return To Sender - Elvis Presley

Summer Holiday - Cliff Richard

Yesterday - The Beatles

Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head - B.J. Thomas
