Its fab ... its groovy ... its back to the 60s
Its fab ..... its groovy .... Stage Door Entertainments take you back to the 60s once more with two music filled hours featuring all the hits and more from this great era with the Union Gap uk and Jimmy Jemain (the UK’s number 1 tribute to Cliff Richard)
Jimmy Jemain is now firmly established as the No. 1 Cliff Richard look and soundalike. The image is so close that people have been known to think that Jimmy Jemain mimes. Make no mistake, every song is live and sung to perfection.
In 1990, Jimmy Jemain won his heat on the TV Series "Stars In Their Eyes" and due to public demand went on to appear on the show a further four times.
He has been performing his Tribute Show for over 20 years and his act shows professionalism and class to the highest degree. He has appeared with this show all over the world, in five star hotels, on board luxury cruise liners and at theatres nationwide. His show appeals to all ages and suit a family audience.
Jimmy loves singing and his audiences enjoy the special thrill only he can give them. His professionalism shines through in whatever he does.
In 1968 Union Gap featuring a very young Gary Puckett- had a worldwide number 1 with Young Girl.
Other hits followed including Lady Willpower, Woman Woman, Over You, This Girls a Woman Now and Don't give in to Him. In 1974 Young Girl was re-released & reached number 5 in the UK charts.
Fast forward a few years and we find Union Gap uk promoting the hits of the band both in this country & abroad. The band rapidly built up a reputation as one of the best bands on the 60's circuit & have worked continuously around the world since those early days, including major 60's themed theatre tours, albeit with occasional line up changes.
The band have kept in touch with Gary Puckett over the years & Mike Ellis ( Keyboard player with Union Gap uk ) went to work with Gary on a previous tour over here & then the band worked with Gary on his last visit to Great Britain. The band are currently in discussion regarding another tour with Gary.
So come & spend an evening of nostalgia listening to Union Gap uk performing the bands hits along with many other well known songs from the 60's at what is one of the bands very few local gigs.
