“Swinging Sixties” allows you to let the good times roll again as Dave Monks & Marion Loudon transport you back in time to the “Era of Real Music”.
Dave and Marion entertain superbly in this very well put together collection of nostalgic and popular Sixties hits. The show features covers of more than 20 different artists including The Beatles, Sony & Cher, The Carpenters, The Crystals, Nancy Sinatra, The Monkees, Cliff Richard, Credence Clearwater Revival and The Bee Gees just to name a few.
Marion’s amazing voice, vocal range and versatility never ceases to shine and particularly in songs like My Boy Lollipop, These Boots Are Made for Walking, Da Do Ron Ron and The Carpenters worldwide smash hit Jambalaya, which incidentally was written in the sixties and was only became a hit in 1973.
Dave features with some great lead guitar work as he glides through some of The Shadows greatest hits, Atlantis and the ever-green Apache which incidentally has been recently voted as No 1 greatest guitar instrumental of all time.
Dave & Marion’s voices blend extremely well together and so they should as they have performed together all over South Africa including Sun City, Swaziland, Johannesburg and far too many corporate events and festivals to mention. Dave & Marion have also been the voices behind many radio adverts and Just for the notebook Marion Loudon has been the harmonising vocalist on all of Dave Monks solo CDs.
The show consists of a wide variety of those great sixties songs plus some very well thought out medleys which flow along with great ambiance and will surely have your hands clapping and toes tapping. The Beatles Medley and Rock & Roll Medleys will have you reminiscing, particularly those of you who were around during the great explosive musical times of the 60’s. The use of harmonica on some of The Beatles songs is very effective and very in tune with the whole 60’s vibe. Very clever backing tracks together with Dave Monks & Marion Loudon makes this show a must for the whole family and certainly one not to be missed.
The Swinging Sixties comes alive in this celebration of an entire decade of music which runs from start to finish like clockwork.
