Who could have predicted that a band, which hit the top of the charts 50 years ago in 1961 with hits in the 20s-style that were already 40 years out of date, would still be around in 2017, and still playing the same style of music?
The main difference now is that the band has a vast repertoire; jazz classics from the past, original compositions, novelty numbers … and as they play, their obvious enjoyment is transmitted to their audience with their zany, Pythonesque humour.
Temperance Seven will be stopping off at the Regent Centre in Christchurch on Friday 22 September. The show starts at 7.30pm and tickets are £16, with concessions £14. The Regent Centre and mags4dorset are offering the chance to win a pair of tickets as a prize for this great evening out.
To enter, answer this question:
What is the name of Temperance Seven’s tour?
