On top of that, they will be bringing along special guests PAUL LAYTON. original member of The New Seekers, and DONNA JONES from Springfield Revival, Pussyfoot and The New Seekers.

MICK (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), Pete Lennon (lead guitar), Rickey Simpson Gray (bass) and Steve Rolfe (drums) know how to fill a dance floor by playing the best of 60s and 70s music with a splash of today.

MICK sprang to fame with THE MIXTURES, an Australian group who enjoyed a big international hit in 1971 with "The Pushbike Song".

He was then involved with SPRINGFIELD REVIVAL with his now wife DONNA JONES and this group were a major attraction on British TV shows as well as touring with the likes of THE OSMONDS at venues such as Madison Square Garden in New York.


MICK then joined THE NEW SEEKERS with their huge catalogue of hits, touring extensively and performing on TV.

PAUL LAYTON was a founder member of THE NEW SEEKERS who scored six top five hits in the 1970s, including two No1s "I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing" and "I Get A Little Sentimental Over You".

He loves THE BEE GEES and his rendition of "Massachussetts" is always a highlight.


DONNA JONES is a gifted singer and glamorous entertainer, with a wealth of experience from her days with THE NEW SEEKERS, PUSSYFOOT and SPRINGFIELD REVIVAL.

The last two years with the MICK FLINN BAND have been a roaring success, so make a date for this NEW YEAR'S EVE. Amersham Rock 'n' Roll Club is the place to be to welcome in 2018 in style!


VALENTINE'S CONCERT

Starring New Amen Corner with Special Guests Mike d'Abo of Manfred Mann and Chris Farlowe

8 p.m. Saturday, February 17 2018

Tickets £20.00 and are available from The Record Shop 01494-433311 by credit/debit card


NEW AMEN CORNER'S annual VALENTINE CONCERTS at the Amersham Rock 'n' Roll Club have become a huge attraction and this one - with Special Guests MIKE D'ABO of MANFRED MANN fame and CHRIS "Out Of Time" FARLOWE - has all the makings of another smash success.

It might be the middle of winter but NEW AMEN CORNER will soon warm you up with all those wonderful hits from the "Summer Of Love" era of the late 1960s. Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair!

MIKE D'ABO almost needs no introduction as he fronted one of the biggest groups to come out of the Swinging Sixties, MANFRED MANN.

When original lead singer PAUL JONES left the group in 1966 to go solo, many thought MANFRED MANN would struggle to stay in the charts after a great run that included "Do Wah Diddy Diddy", "Sha La La", "Come Tomorrow", "If You Gotta Go, Go Now" and "Pretty Flamingo"


Mike d'Abo

But MIKE rose to the challenge and with him on lead vocals for the first time MANFRED MANN were back in the top 10 with their version of the Bob Dylan song "Just Like A Woman".

It wasn't long they were notching up big international hits with "Semi-Detached Surburban Mr James" and "Ha Ha Said The Clown" before soaring to No.1 with another Bob Dylan song "Mighty Quinn".

The hits rolled on with "My Name Is Jack", "Fox On The Run" and "Ragamuffin Man" before the group called it a day in 1969.

MIKE was also a songwriter of note, composing THE FOUNDATIONS' international chart-topper "Build Me Up Buttercup". Another of his songs was "Handbags And Gladrags", which both CHRIS FARLOWE and THE STEREOPHONICS took into the charts.


Chris Farlowe

CHRIS FARLOWE is a firm favourite at Amersham. He loves to perform here because it's up close and personal. A standout performance by CHRIS is guaranteed at Amersham!

He will forever be associated with his 1966 worldwide No.1 "Out Of Time" penned by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.

CHRIS's other hits included "Paint It Black", "Ride On Baby" and "Stormy Monday Blues"


NEW AMEN CORNER are arguably the best band on the circuit, combining top-class musicianship with showmanship in their colourful "Summer Of Love" outfits.

Along with the hits of the "Summer Of Love", they play the big AMEN CORNER hits "Bend Me Shape Me", "If Paradise Is Half As Nice" and "High In The Sky".
