The MICK FLINN BAND return by popular demand after their sell out NEW YEAR’S EVE CONCERT to rock Amersham once again in a way only they can!
This promises to be a spectacular night with a delicious Polish meal and a colourful and thrilling display by the Mazury Dance Company in traditional costumes to start off the evening.
MICK FLINN graced world stages and television shows with chart-topping groups, The Mixtures ("The Pushbike Song") and New Seekers ("I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing", "Beg, Steal Or Borrow", "Never Ending Song Of Love").
Mick (lead vocals and guitar), lead guitarist, Peter Lennon, Steve Rolfe on drums and Ricky Simpson Gray on bass cerrtainly know how to get a crowd rockling!
Mick, who was originally from Melbourne, Australia but now lives in Chorleywood, and his band play hits from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s recorded by many well-known acts.
"We go for classic rock 'n' roll hits," says Mick.
"We play songs by bands like the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin and we design the set list to be the most likely songs to get people singing along or even up and dancing.
"We play some Neil Young stuff as well, which has gone down very well lately, so we’ll be looking to play more of that in the future.
"The music of the 50s, 60s and 70s is still incredibly popular, and so many people grew up with it, but it’s harder and harder to hear it played live these days."
Special guests for the night are the magnificent Mazury Dance Company of the Polish YMCA in London who will perform a stunning display of dancing in colourful costumes while Harvest Ball guests enjoy a delicious Polish meal.
Founded in 1949, Mazury consists today of more than 120 dancers, singers and musicians in three groups from age eight upwards.
Mazury have appeared on television in more than 30 countries, including Come Dancing and a New Year's Day musical show, as well as several popular network game shows.
They have performed at most of the main London dance venues, taken part in a Ken Russell film, cut an LP record, recorded a CD and participated regularly in such prestige festivals as the Festival of the Pyrenees, Arundel Castle, and the Cheltenham Spring Festival.
Mazury have performed for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and several other heads of state, and have entertained the Prince and Princess of Wales. In 1992 Mazury took part in the celebrations in Poland marking its return to a free and independent country.
They have a costume collection of more than 3,000 items.
