Story posted on

THERE’S non-stop entertainment at Melksham Assembly Hall in the coming weeks. 

Friday 21st February, the Assembly Hall welcomes tribute band, California Dreamin’, performing the greatest hits from the ‘flower power’ era, featuring the songs of The Mamas and Papas.

Promoters say, “The Mamas and Papas are one of the super groups from the golden age of the ‘flower power’ era in the 60s. They brought us smash hits like ‘Monday Monday’, ‘Creeque Alley’, ‘Dedicated To The One I Love’, ‘I Saw Her Again Last Night’ and ‘California Dreaming’, just to name a few. 

“This show will instantly transport you back to one of the most iconic periods of the sixties – the ‘flower power’ era where peace, love and psychedelia flowed freely to the great music of Scott McKenzie, The Flowerpot Men, Barry McGuire, The Lemon Pipers, The Turtles, plus many many more.

“Don’t miss this opportunity to relive a summer of love in one great show.”

Tickets cost £23.50 and the show starts at 7.30pm.

On Friday 6th March, Buddy Holly & The Cricketers will get the Assembly Hall rockin’ and a rollin’.

Promoters say, “This breathtaking show has rock ’n’ rolled audiences across the globe from Cardiff to California, Barking to Bangkok and Swindon to Sweden and is guaranteed to have everyone singing along to the music and dancing in the aisles.

“It stars some of the finest actor-musicians in the UK whose combined West End credits include Buddy, Lennon, Forbidden Planet and Jailhouse Rock and was endorsed as Britain’s most popular Buddy Holly act when the boys guested on BBC One’s Saturday night live programme, ‘The One and Only’, hosted by Graham Norton.

“The show rarely pauses for breath and is, quite simply, the most compelling concert of its kind. The hits just keep on coming – ‘That’ll Be The Day’, ‘Peggy Sue’, ‘Heartbeat’, ‘It Doesn’t Matter Anymore’, ‘Raining In My Heart’, ‘Oh Boy!’ – and much, much more. Whatever the season, whatever the excuse to party, make your ‘Heartbeat’ a little faster with the show that has thousands of fans the world over saying:  ‘I can’t believe it’s not Buddy!’”

Tickets cost £18 and the show starts at 7.30pm.

Also coming up at the Assembly Hall is Oasis Maybe and Ultimate Roses on Saturday 7th March; and Powerhouse Gospel Choir on Saturday 14th March.
