MUNDESLEY FESTIVAL 2015
What a great night at the Mundesley festival Perry Dennis and the Twylight shadows
We were entertained from start to finish not only superb songs and dance routines
But also some comedy thrown in which had us in fits of laughter .
The band not only dressed smartly but presented the songs with the shadows step routines .
A special mention to their drummer, I have never been so entertained
By watching a drummer, so dynamic and entertaining.
A great show from start to finish. Cant wait to see you again.
Peter, Anne and the noisy crowd
The tribute to Cliff Richard by Perry Dennis and the Twylight Shadows brought a wonderful sense of déjà vu in the Brook on Saturday. Thanks to Perry and the band, ‘Summer Holiday’, ’Living Doll’, ‘Congratulations’ and a host of other Cliff Richard numbers inspired us to relive those heady days at the clubs in our youth and the dance floor on this night was packed in similar style.
Perry Dennis and the Twylight Shadows are amazing entertainers and on this warm summer’s evening they wowed the audience with a steady flow of Cliff’s hits. Numbers like ‘In the country’, ‘C’mon Everybody’, ‘Bachelor Boy’, ’When the girl in your arms’ and ‘Do you wanna dance’ had us transfixed . The band on their own brought alive memorable numbers like ‘Apache’, ‘Wonderful Land’ and ‘F.B.I’. Few favourites were left out of this night’s revelry.
The lead singer, Perry Dennis, knew how to play the audience and his fantastic voice captured the spirit of the songs perfectly. The band members played their parts to perfection. Pete Savage was a ‘mean’ lead guitar, Mark Jackson kept a toe-tapping feel on rhythm, Jay Hartop on bass set our hearts racing, especially in ‘Nivram’, Paul Marshall amazed us with the excitement he created on drums and Rik Keys had some great moments on keyboard and guitar. These were not just talented instrumentalists; they also managed to add an amazing variety of authentic vocals, some way out of their natural voice range.
Billy G, who will be appearing at the Brook again on 17th August, provided a great warm up and sang a number of pop songs of other idols, including the unforgettable Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly.
This was a great evening.
The event was raising funds for Lisa’s Fund in aid of the Arthur Rank House Charity and Robert Barnes was able to announce that the total he has raised in all for the Arthur Rank Hospice is £78,000 so far!
Haverhill Arts Centre Saturday September 7th 2013
Well last night I had a rare night off so I popped over to Haverhill Arts Centre to meet a band I've been trying to see for the past 12 months and boy was the wait worth it !
The band in question was PERRY DENNIS & THE TWYLIGHT SHADOWS,
The band are a great tribute to the Shadows with Pete Savage on lead guitar and wow could he make that red fender sing, playing hits such as Apache / FBI / Wonderfu...l Land / Sleepwalk / Nivram (the bass solo expertly played by the Bands MD Jay Hartop). along with Paul Marshall on Drums, Mark Jackson on Rhythm Guitar and Rik keys on Keyboards the guys do a great job of recreating the sound of The Shadows.
Perry Dennis although not trying to impersonate Cliff Richard, sang cliffs hits in his own unique style which had the packed audience singing along. the two hour show was soon over and the guys left the stage to a standing ovation !
A special mention must go to Kay Hartop who handles the business side of the band and Jem Finch their sound/ lighting engineer (who I might add has the hardest job of all)
STAGE DOOR ENTERTAINMENTS are pleased to take these guys under our wing - look out for them at a venue near you !
