July 18, 1953, Presley first walked through the doors of the Memphis Recording Service at the Sun Record Company, paid $3.98 and recorded a double-sided demo, ‘My Happiness’ and ‘That’s When Your Heartaches Begin’. The rest became Rock’n’roll history!

Renowned as the original and very best, ‘Jive Talkin’ is the ONLY Bee Gees tribute show that has actually performed with the original group! In 1997 Gary & Darren performed LIVE on HEART FM with THE BEE GEES and received great compliments from both Maurice and Barry Gibb.
As with the original Bee Gees, Jive Talkin’ is very much a family affair, with brothers Gary and Darren Simmons taking the roles of Barry and Maurice Gibb and Darren’s son Jack joining the group in 2014 taking on the role of Robin Gibb. The guys are supported by a fantastic four-piece band with Lead Guitar, Violin, Cello and Drums, to ensure that every note in every song is just right!
Wherever the group play they receive superb plaudits; “The Soundalike quality is quite sensational” (The Stage), “Amazing similarity to the real Bee Gees” (Wakefield Express), Absolutely Brilliant (Maurice Gibb), WOW (Barry Gibb)
For a truly amazing experience and an opportunity to hear all the great Bee Gees hits; Tragedy, Night Fever, Massachusetts, Stayin Alive, Jive Talkin, etc, in a 2 hour explosion of music and vocal harmony, this is a night not to be missed!
Lulu has made music and memories with the greatest of all time. Elton John wrote songs with her, Bowie produced and recorded with her, McCartney duetted with her and one of the Bee Gees married her. It’s a story that has to be told and provides a once-in-a-lifetime insight into some of the world’s musical legends. Join Lulu as she shares, for the first time, many untold stories, her memories and experiences with the greats – and enjoy with her the music that has been her constant companion. This is Lulu – For The Record.
Many years before the Beatles stepped onto the world’s most famous zebra crossing, Glenn Miller made his last known recording at London’s Abbey Road Studios on Monday 27th November 1944, just a few short weeks before he “disappeared” on December 15th of that same year. It was especially poignant to be able to bring the NRO into those same studios to make our new CD for you almost 75 years later.
The lights soften, the mood settles. An audience waits for that first moment of sound. The Big Band is poised, relaxed, but with eyes anxious for the lead. And then, as if giving body to an echo, the murmured notes of ‘Moonlight Serenade’… and the night, it seems, is suddenly full and timeless.
There are those who watch and listen who tap a shy finger to the melodies, others who follow with a silent foot-beat, still others who murmur softly through the lyrics, and those who simply permit a fleeting smile. But common to all are memories.
Recapture the sounds of a bygone era as the Nick Ross Orchestra presents ‘an unmissable evening of music and song’ – the Classic Big Band Sound of the 1940s & 50s.
