‘THE SHADES OF THE 60S’ is a musical stage show that celebrates some of the best known names in pop music from the 60s. In a fabulous two hour pop song extravaganza which stars the young tenor, Dan Chettoe with 60s vocal group The Shades, this show will take audiences on a trip down musical memory lane. Dan and the Shades will perform a catalogue of hit songs that started the pop music explosion in the 1960s and made stars out of thousands of names from the Beatles to the Supremes, from Tom Jones to Lulu and from Gerry and the Pacemakers to Chubby Checker.
Here’s a mouth-watering snapshot of some of the songs the cast will be performing to get the party started:
It’s Not Unusual/Tom Jones;
I Only Wanna Be With You/Dusty Springfield
Twist and Shout/The Beatles
Da Do Ron Ron/The Crystals
What’s New Pussycat/Tom Jones
You Can’t Hurry Love/The Supremes
Do You Love Me/The Contours
You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me/Dusty Springfield
Green Green Grass of Home/Tom Jones
A Shot of Rhythm and Blues/Gerry and the Pacemakers
Let’s Twist Again/Chubby Checker
And Shout which became Lulu’s first smash hit when she performed it on TV’s ‘Ready Steady Go’ in 1965…aged 15!
Matt Brinkler, Executive Producer of Red Entertainment (photo left by Darren Bell) is the creator of the SHADES brand:
“Dan Chettoe is a hugely talented, youthful all-round star whose voice lives up to that of an international 60s pop legend, and one that has already blown away national TV audiences,” says Matt. “People are rarely born with the talent Dan Chettoe has, even less celebrated. In sharing with us his effortless singing ability and natural stage presence, I think audiences will be on their feet as soon as he opens his mouth.
“At Red Entertainment we’re extremely proud of the SHADES brand – Cilla and the Shades of the 60s has been touring successfully since 2017; our story of Dusty Springfield, Dusty and the Shades of the 60s, followed in 2018 and we’re planning more SHADES tours for 2020.
“Our goal is to tell the story of these iconic generation defining artists through a clear narrative with the music which is, of course, recognised around the world. At RED ENTERTAINMENT we are passionate about creating high quality, affordable live entertainment for audiences of all ages.”
