LOVERS of the sounds of Cliff Richard and The Shadows are in for a treat next Saturday (January 7).
Covers band Tit-For-Tat will take to the stage at The Masonic Hall in Chambers Street and will get feet tapping to the beat that was the back-drop to the Sixties.
Formed by lead guitarist Del Boyd and rhythm guitarist Bruce Graham to play Shadows music, they were soon joined by bass man Robert Geeson.
Del played with Pete Coleman and The Trophies and The Detours in the late Fifties and early Sixties, but for Bruce it was his band debut, having taught himself to play guitar. Robert played for U-No-Hoo as well as other bands.
Present drummer is former U-No-Hoo man Andy Thomas and vocalist is Ron Frisby. The group ran for six years starting in 1997 before disbanding for eight years. They reformed after meeting up at Jet Harris’s 70th birthday celebrations.
As well as Shadows material, Tit-For-Tat also play a nice slice of Buddy Holly and The Crickets as well as other rock ’n’ roll covers.
Admission is by ticket only, priced at £10.50 which includes a buffet.
Doors open at 6.30pm, the show commences at 7pm and the buffet will be served between 7.45pm and 8.15pm.
Proceeds will go to Gregory House Amenities Fund.
