This young three-piece band recently completed a two-year stint as the resident act at Liverpool’s legendary Cavern Club. If that’s not enough to prove their credentials, the group is known for its energetic repertoire that covers the likes of The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Beatles and Spencer Davis Group. They also pull out some rock ‘n’ roll favourites and cover songs by Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly and Elvis Presley. The Moondogs are undoubtedly a must-see act for a show-stopping tribute to all the sounds that defined these decades.
Memories of the 4 Tops

Marty Wilde and The Wildcats
Marty Wilde rose to rock ‘n’ roll fame in the late 50s with his first major hit single, ‘Endless Sleep’. After that, the hits just kept coming, with 1959’s ‘Donna’ spending four months in the UK top 50, and ‘Teenager In Love’, which reached number 2. ‘Bad Boy’, ‘Sea of Love’ and ‘Jezebel’ were all chart favourites as well.
