The mid 60s music scene was dominated by British groups, and three became household names – the Beatles – the Rolling Stones and of course Herman’s Hermits.
From their beginnings in Manchester on April 1st 1964, the band has chalked up more than 23 top 20 singles, 10 hit albums, three major movies and countless television shows and concert tours all over the world – up to date they have sold more than 75 million.
Since 1971 and the departure of Peter Noone to pursue a solo career, the group has never stopped.
Original member, Barry Whitwam, has guided the group from strength to strength into one of the hardest working bands in the business.
They still average more than 200 one night stands per year and reckon they maintain their stamina by having an amazing sense of humour.
The Golden Oldies still make up a large part of their show – much to the enjoyment of their fans, who can’t resist singing along to Mrs Brown You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter, Silhouettes, Dandy, Can’t You Hear My Heart Beat, There’s A Kind Of Hush, No Milk Today, Something Is Happening, Sunshine Girl, Henry VIII, and many more.
From the sixties through to the 21st Century Herman’s Hermits are still ‘Into Something Good’.
The band plays Rotherham Civic Theatre on Saturday 4th February 2012.
Tickets priced £16 are available at the box office on 01709 823621 or online at www.rotherham.gov.uk/theatres
