With the kind permission of the bands management, it is with great pleasure that we are able to announce that you can now hire the utterly awesome Showaddywaddy through Hire A Band.
If you had an ounce of fun in your body growing up in the 70's you would have been glued to your screens waiting for Jimmy Saville or Tony Blackburn to introduce Showaddywaddy on Top of the Pops. This magnificent band is still going strong and are now on the road again and coming to a venue near you.
Here's the official word from their management;
SHOWADDYWADDY have long been established as Europe's most successful ever exponents of retro-inspired rock & roll. The record
speaks for itself!
23 Top 40 hit singles, including 10 Top 5 hits (Under The Moon of Love,When, You Got What It Takes, 3 Steps To Heaven, Hey Rock & Roll, Etc!) 15 massive selling albums (including the Christmas number 1 in 1978)
An incredible live show - acclaimed the world over!
In excess of 50 Top Of The Pops performances, and countless Industry awards!
Royal Variety performances (one to the delight of the Queen Mother - who actually requested to meet the band post-performance)
Bill toppers at the prestigious Golden Orpheus World Music Festival before a staggering TV audience of 300 million people - making history in the process by becoming the first western-world band to be screened
live in Communist Cuba!
As if the band's amazing success through 4 decades were not enough,
here now, well into the 21st Century the demand for these legendary
performers is every bit as strong. Surely a testament to their outstanding
reputation as live artists.
Late 2004 saw the release of the band's re-mastered "Very Best Of" collection, which saw the band achieve their first Gold Album award for more than 20 years. The album stayed on the chart for 3 months and it's phenomenal success exceeded all expectations.
This once again confirmed Showaddywaddy as proven recording artists, and it was not long before the boys were asked to record their first album of new material for 15 years. The record was entitled "I Love Rock
& Roll", and was a classic collection of covers of hits by their 70's contemporaries. The album was released late 2006 on DMG, and once again was a fantastic success, with outstanding reviews and healthy sales figures.
From 2009 thru 2011 the band performed a series of unique concerts across the UK under the title of "An Evening Of Rock & Roll With Showaddywaddy". The gigs featured the band delving into their formative years, along with selected songs from The Sun Album in an exclusive opening set, followed by a stirring second half full of the band's many hit singles.
The band's track record and versatility are without question - concerts, corporate conventions, festivals, universities, colleges, clubs & private functions the world over still clamour to book the remarkable SHOWADDYWADDY!
After 38 incredible years, rock & roll music is truly alive and kicking in the hands of this amazing band.
