Saturday NOVEMBER 15th, Simon in concert at the Festival Hall, Pembroke "An evening with Dai Bassett and Friends" www.festhall.ca
- a solo act featuring multi-instrumentalist Simon Clarke, ex-band member of Freddie and the Dreamers, world-famous British Invasion 60's band with such international hits as "I'm telling you now" and "You were made for me". He was Freddie’s musical director and keyboard player from 1995 - 2001 when Freddie finally decided to retire.
Simon emigrated to Canada from the UK in 2003 but still keeps his musical roots firmly in the era of the British Invasion of the 60's. Enjoy this trip down memory lane with great songs from that period (Beatles, Kinks, Herman's Hermits and many more…) plus other music legends such as Roy Orbison, CCR and Elton John to name but a few. Funtime, foot-tapping 50 / 60 / 70’s nostalgia from slow ballads to "up tempo" floor-show numbers featuring live playing of guitar, keyboard, mouth organ, saxophone, banjolele and vocals supported by professional-level backing tracks to give a full-band sound. Dance the night away or just sit back and listen – the choice is yours!
This act is extremely versatile and can accommodate the smaller, more intimate area through to larger venues. The music is timeless and appeals to all age groups from the young to the “young at heart”. Simon has done radio interviews for Majic 100 radio, CHIP FM and Valley Heritage Radio to talk about his exciting time spent as a Dreamer.
In 2010 Simon and his wife Julia became proud Canadian citizens
As a Dreamer, Simon worked with many of his 60's heroes - Gerry and the Pacemakers,
Herman's Hermits, Billy J. Kramer, Eric Burdon and the New Animals, Wayne
Fontana, The Hollies, Marmalade, The Searchers, The Tremeloes, The Troggs, Martha Reeves and
the Vandellas to name but a few.
