Think back to an era when the mini was the car to have as was the skirt, the Fab Four were riding high in the charts, new dance crazes were perfected in clubs, and Mods rivalled Rockers.

Yes, the swinging sixties. The decade of great music, fashion, and social change is set to be remembered at Brookside Theatre, Eastern Road, Romford.

On Friday, August 11, The Revolvers – an energetic tribute act – will pay homage to the lost decade and faithfully recreate songs that dominated the airwaves and TV.

The Sounds Of The Sixties musical extravaganza catalogues the classic hits from the era that revolutionised modern music.

Hits made famous by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Who, Small Faces, and many more, will be recreated with as much enthusiasm as when first heard.

Brookside Theatre manager, Jai Sepple said: “We are thrilled to have The Revolvers back at the theatre with their tribute to the Swingin’ Sixties.

“We’ve had many rock ‘n’ roll bands at the theatre but these guys are one of the most authentic tributes to an unforgettable era and the show promises to have the audience dancing in the aisles.”

The Revolvers are made up of four musicians who will guarantee to get feet tapping and audiences moving to tracks that defined a generation.

By the end of the 1950s war-ravaged Europe had begun an economic boom and young people began to revolt against the conservative norms of the time.

London transformed from a conservative city into one full of hope, promise and freedom, with a blaring soundtrack to boot.

From every teenage transistor radio blared new pop music and like their idols The Beatles, went from smart suited and booted mods to full blown hippies.

Songs played at the show is sure to transport former 1960s youths back to the “summer of love”.

“We would certainly recommend the event to anyone who remembers the 1960’s and fans of live music alike,” continued Jai.

The show starts at 8pm and tickets cost £17.
