A 60s-themed show celebrating everything that is British will be taking centre stage at a Romford theatre.

Brookside Theatre, Eastern Road, is due to welcome act Johnny Warman’s Magic Bus to transport an audience back to around 60 years ago, when British music was topping the charts all over the world.

Frontman Johnny Warman says the show is not one to miss if you’re a fan of the swinging 60s.

He said: “The British Invasion Show celebrates the years 1964 to 1966 when British bands invaded the US charts.

“We perform all the classics by bands like The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Who, The Kinks, The Pretty Things, Dave Clarke 5, The Moody Blues and early Pink Floyd.

“The audience gets a two-hour show, and we pack in as much as we can. We make sure people get their money’s worth.”

An avid fan of bands such as The Rolling Stones and The Who, Johnny was signed to Ringo Starr’s record label and had a string of hits in the 1970s and 80s, including Screaming Jets which featured singer Peter Gabriel.

Keen to celebrate the decade filled with some of his favourite British music, Johnny began touring with his band, entertaining crowds with The British Invasion Show.

Between the band members, Johnny Warmn’s Magic Bus has worked alongside acts including Elton John, David Bowie, XTC, Ringo Starr, Asia, Julian Lennon, ABC, Cheap Trick, Bruce Springstreen and Foo Fighters.

The show is said to be very energetic, jam-packed with classic tunes that will take you back to when Britain was making its stamp in the world of music.

He said: “This is the music that gave us the opportunity to follow our heroes and our own creative paths.”

The British Invasion Show will be performed by Johnny Warman’s Magic Bus at Brookside Theatre on February 3 from 8pm, with tickets priced at £19.
