THE Mods are marching on St Albans for a storming night of sounds from the 60s.

With a massive resurgence of Mod culture in the UK, The Mod All Star Band will be appearing at the Alban Arena on Friday, May 18, featuring two 1960s chart-toppers in Steve Ellis and Chris Farlowe.

This show is based around the Mod era featuring tracks from groups such as The Small Faces and The Who, material from Motown legends and 60s soul greats.

This goes hand in hand with the sound of Northern Soul, which emerged from legendary venues such as The Wigan Casino and Manchester Twisted Wheel.

Special guests at this special St Albans show are soul singer Ellis and Farlowe.

Ellis, the original lead vocalist from Love Affair, scored a number one hit in 1968 with Everlasting Love.

The group also enjoyed top 10 hits with Rainbow Valley, A Day Without Love and Bringing on Back The Good Times.

Meanwhile, Chris Farlowe took Mick Jagger and Keith Richards’ Rolling Stones composition Out of Time to the top of the charts in June 1966.

He was also the first to release a recording of Handbags and Gladrags, a song later covered by Rod Stewart and then The Stereophonics, and well known as the theme song for Ricky Gervias BBC sitcom The Office.

They will be joined by singer Lorraine Silver, who recorded popular Northern Soul track Lost Summer Love, while The New Amen Corner will be the night’s backing band.
