Southport Gentlemen of Rock ‘n’ Roll Big Chance Dance - Fleetwood Hesketh Club

It was once again a packed house at the Fleetwood Hesketh Club on Friday, with the long anticipated return of local hero Kin Kelly, formerly Pete Kelly, singer with 60s hit-makers R&B Inc, and the Pete Kelly Solution who, over the years, has performed throughout the UK and Europe with great success.

On the night, Kin was in fine voice, belting out the old 50s, 60s and 70s favourites from Buddy Holly to Tamla Motown.

After the interval, resplendent in white suit, Kin performed his Elvis Presley tribute act to great acclaim.

House band The Sandgrounders, as always, provided two exciting sets and the proceedings were kept bouncing by DJ/Compere Marty Hawkins.

A spokesman for Southport’s Gentlemen of Rock ‘n’ Roll confirmed the policy of star acts every month will continue in 2015 at reasonable prices.

“The Bootles will be back, by demand, in February. We are grateful for the support of all the young at heart fans who love the music of the 60s and 70s, as borne out by the popularity of our monthly shows.”

The next show is on Friday, January 23, when Soul Patrol play, featuring a five-piece Tamla Motown band.

Tickets £10 from bigal

The well-appointed Fleetwood Hesketh Club is open to non-members with membership available on application. With friendly bar staff and nice ambience, it is a mecca for fans of cricket and football as well as outdoor and indoor bowls.
