In this article, we’ll run through some of the best ‘70s singers you can enjoy while on adult weekends away. Read on to find out more – you’ll be packing your bags in no time! |
One of the biggest names on the soul and Motown circuit, Steve Simone is a regular performer on a variety of cruise ships and other fun-filled adult weekends. He’s worked with a range of other popular acts, too, from Janet Jackson and Boyzone to Ronnie Drew and The Dubliners. If you want a tour through the wide world of soul with one of the greats, look no further.
New Amen Corner
First formed in 1966, the original Amen Corner burst out of the unlikely surroundings of Cardiff to exert a huge influence on the UK blues and jazz scene of the era. Once again, members of the band played with many of the greats, including legendary guitarist Jeff Beck and Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant. Many years on in 2019, the newly-formed tribute group create the perfect soundtrack to adult weekends away. Get learning some lyrics before you head off!
Formed in Kent in 1968, Vanity Fare had a brief moment in the sun when they cleared the hurdle that so many UK bands have fallen at: they had a hit in America, with ‘Hitchin’ a Ride’. The ‘70s saw them develop their image and sound, and today their show draws on a wide and deep catalogue from across the decades.
Did You Know? Vanity Fare originally went by the name The Avengers. Given the popularity of a certain movie franchise today, it’s probably good that they changed it.
A teen icon in the ‘60s, Berry had a string of hits over the following decades and today, continues to play shows even though he’s well into his 70s!
He first came to fame with a cover of Chuck Berry’s ‘Memphis, Tennessee’. Today, his mixture of rock ‘n’ roll and hits from across the years makes his shows a great centrepiece for a number of adult weekends away. Past collaborators include The Animals and members of Led Zeppelin.
