legends, who play at the South Holland Centre on February 20 with The Swinging Blue Jeans, are in Peterborough the week before.

Sounds Force 5 were very popular in the city in the heyday of pop music and will play at The Cresset on February 19.

On this occasion the band will be sharing the stage with The Move, who were one of the bill toppers in Spalding at the now legendary Barbecue 67 event.

The Move were famous for being the first band to appear on BBC Radio One and still include founder members Trevor Burton and drummer Bev Bevan, who was also in ELO.

Sounds Force 5 drummer Colin Ward, said: “What a thrill it will be to meet The Move again.

“It was in May 1967 that we appeared with them at the now demolished Bulb Auction Halls. Also joining us will be The Fortunes and The Dakotas, so it’s quite a bill.

“We are so thrilled that the local 60s fans are turning out in their hundreds to join our anniversary celebrations.”

Colin added: “Likewise, we cannot believe that our original guitarist Rob Munton will be flying over all the way from Australia for the concerts.”
