Counterfeit 60s tribute show is real deal
3:10pm Wednesday 28th March 2012 in What's on
A FUNDRAISING event brings the sound of the sixties to Pickering, kicking off its 60s festival in June.
The Counterfeit Sixties tribute show takes place at the Kirk Theatre on Thursday, June 7, and is one of several fundraising events organised by the Pickering 60s Festival, which enables them to put on free live entertainment each year in the Market Place.
The Counterfeit Sixties, pictured, was formed by four experienced musicians with their devotion of 60s music and the people that influenced it. Each member of the band has a wealth of experience playing in various bands individually and working with some of the legends of the time.
As the band members lived through the sixties themselves, they have a great in-depth knowledge of what memories can be encapsulated in producing a 60s show.
These are reproduced using live action footage of many familiar sights and sounds associated with this period, from specially selected events, famous people, adverts and of course the original bands of the time.
The two-hour show covers all the recollections of that era, and with more than 25 bands reproduced, the show is undoubtedly the most comprehensive 60s show around today.
The show is at 7.30pm, tickets cost £8 and are available at Television House, Pickering.
