Masham Goes Back to the 70’s
Fetch the face paint as Seventies show hits Masham Town Hall
Re-live the sounds of the Seventies. Ultimate 70s - Show tickets now on sale.
It was the decade that fashion forgot – but dust off your lurex loons, the Seventies is back in town for one night only on Saturday 7th March 2020 at Masham Town Hall.
Intent on re-creating the era they love, the Ultimate 70s Show promises fans an authentic evening of Seventies classic hits delivered just as you would have heard them back in their hey day.
The Ultimate 70s Show is a totally live tribute to the rock and pop idols of the 1970s, featuring the music of Slade, The Sweet, David Bowie, Suzi Quatro, Alice Cooper, Mott the Hoople and Queen to name but a few. The band wear authentic costumes and the music is as near to the original as possible.
Martin Metcalf, a former guitarist with legendary group Geordie, is one of the six 70s rockers and session musicians who make up Ultimate 70s, whose brand of entertainment has been a huge hit with festival goers all across the UK and Europe.
As well as Martin on guitar and singer Chris Peters, the band features a drummer, saxophonist, bassist and keyboard player whose credits include playing and supporting a host of legendary musicians including Sting and INXS.
Martin, who goes by his stage name of Metz, said: “This is an amazing night for anyone who loves Seventies music, and fashion. Or anyone who just wants to know more. The brilliant thing about our show is that you don’t need to have been there the first time around to enjoy the Seventies spirit. There has never been a decade like it for the sheer energy and ostentation and fun. There’s no obligation to dress-up. But we’ll be going for it, so why not?
“I got into glam rock in my teens, listening to bands like TRex, Slade and Bowie. The sparkly platform boots and star-patterned jumpers were the icing on the cake.
“Mick Ronson was my first guitar hero, then I got into heavier sounds like Alice Cooper, Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath. They were the catalyst for me wanting to play music.”
