POPULAR Wirral rock ‘n’ roll band the Reverb Brothers are getting behind Wirral Autistic Society’s Lifetime Appeal to fund much-needed purpose built residential accommodation.
The band have been entertaining audiences on Merseyside for almost 20 years with classic hits from The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Ray Charles, The Everly Brothers, Johnny Cash and more.
They will be performing their most popular numbers at a concert at the Hoylake Social Club on Saturday, September 7, at 7.30pm.
Tickets are £5 with all proceeds going to the society’s appeal and are available from Julie Ellsmoor on 0151 632 6258, from the Help Shop, 59 Market Street, or from any member of the band.
The Reverb Brothers initially rose to prominence on the local music scene as a duo comprising songwriters Colin Free on vocals and saxophone and Jimmy Rae on vocals and guitar.
Despite three well received single releases, a deal with RCA Records and a tour of the UK and Europe, the band split in 1987 but it wasn’t long before they were back on stage again playing the good time 50s and 60s music that had inspired them as teenagers.
They are now augmented by Colin’s brother Ian on keyboard, Iain Morton on drums, and Al Willard Peterson on harmonica and trumpet and have become one of Merseyside’s most consistently in-demand party bands.
