Vanity Fare formed in 1966 and are best remembered for their million-selling song ‘Hitchin‘ a Ride‘, which became a worldwide hit in 1970. Two more singles followed before the end of 1970 - ‘Come Tomorrow‘ and ‘Carolina‘s Coming Home‘ both of which were minor hits. In the mid 70s they decided to concentrate on live performances touring Europe, where they were having hit singles. Their highly developed style of melodic close harmonies still wows audiences today.

Niqi has been a professional performer for many years and has sung with such artist’s as Edwin Starr, Martha Reeves, Mary Wilson, Errol Brown and supported Destiny’s Child, The Wailers and Madness. Niqi is the ultimate Tina Turner tribute act. A fast moving, dynamic show recreating hit after hit, this is one of the the best tributes in the UK today.
The Beached Boys magically capture the original 60s surfing sound of the Beach Boys and are still probably the only Beach Boys tribute to have Been joined on stage by original members of the Beach Boys. Listen in amazement as they recreate the super summer sounds of the inspirational California originals. Hits like ‘Little Deuce Coup‘, ‘I get Around‘, ‘Surfin Safari‘ and ‘Help Me Rhonda‘ should get you yearning for the sun and surf.
