A tribute to the 60s group with the most infectious, catchy hooks
The swinging 60s provided a sudden flash of cool in Britain’s previously buttoned up persona, and just over a year after The Beatles’ first hit came the Mods, sticking a big two fingers up at the class system and stale culture.
While The Who may have been the first band adopted by these sharply dressed, working-class free spirits on their Vespas, the quintessential Mod group were Small Faces. They were a blend of style, taste and testosterone.
Their street-wise members were obsessed with rhythm and blues and their music is celebrated in mod musical All or Nothing. With hits such as Whatcha Gonna Do About It, Lazy Sunday, Sha La La La Lee, Itchycoo Park and All or Nothing, they clocked up a stunning run of success.
The show has been endorsed by singer and guitarist Steve Marriott’s daughter Mollie, and it runs from 20 to 22 July at the Corn Exchange. Tickets start at £18.75.
