Next Friday, Spalding’s Sixties supremos Sounds Force 5 will be unveiling a blue plaque at the Red Lion Hotel in town to mark the visit of Jimi Hendrix and his now legendary appearance at Barbecue 67.
The band then appear at the South Holland Centre that evening at a sell-out concert with the Swinging Blue Jeans.
Playing in Sounds Force 5, to mark their 50th anniversary, will be Rob Munton, who is flying over from Australia especially.
Drummer Colin Ward asks that people don’t turn up on the night expecting tickets as the event has been sold out for weeks.Anyone wishing to catch Sounds Force 5 can still do so the night before (at the Cresset, Peterborough) when they are appearing with The Move, who also appeared at Barbecue 67.
Colin added that these will be the last chances to see the band with Ron on guitar.
The Move still feature founder members Trevor Burton and drummer Bev Bevan, who also appeared in ELO.
