With a set list boasting an impressive range to suit all ages, with the emphasis on great ‘hit’ songs and dance-ability. ‘The Jackie Generation’ play up to 2 x 1 hour sets including some classic hits from the 70s that most bands would not dare to attempt! 10cc, John Miles, Wings, ELO, Andrew Gold, The Sweet, & even ‘War of the worlds’! Obviously the band add in some cracking party tunes in the second half to get people up and dancing. From Abba, Suzi Quatro, Boney M, The Osmonds, The Buggles, Elton John, Kiki Dee, Queen, Tony Christie, Olivia Newton John etc. You cannot help but join in the fun!
The band wear genuine 70s costumes with all the glitz and blitz you would expect from this colourful era of denim, satin & leather. Plus with a massive backdrop, complete with original ‘Chopper Bikes’ (stage size allowing), this show really is not to be missed. The ultimate trip back in time to when “Pop was at it’s peak”!
