A rare chance to hear ex-Kinks members perform all their greatest hits in the intimate atmosphere of the Hare & Hounds to commemorate the 52nd Anniversary of The Kinks' Birmingham Debut and bass guitarist John 'Nobby' Dalton's debut with the group.
The Kinks were one of the greatest and most influential groups of all time scoring hit after hit from the 1960's onwards until they split up in 1996.
Expect to hear all The Kinks' hits including “You Really Got Me”, “Dedicated Follower of Fashion”, “Sunny Afternoon”, “Lola”, “Waterloo Sunset”, “Victoria”, “Apeman”, “Days” and “Come Dancing”.
Organised by King's Heath Walk of Fame, this concert will conclude a one day KINKS HEATH FEST that jointly celebrates the 52nd Anniversary of The Kinks performing next door to the Hare & Hounds at the now sadly burnt down Ritz Ballroom and the debut there on bass guitar of John “Nobby” Dalton who will be returning to King's Heath as a member of The Kast Off Kinks.
The Kast Off Kinks are not a tribute band but a great line-up of ex-Kinks members:-
Mick Avory on drums and vocals
John Dalton on bass guitar and vocals
Ian Gibbons on keyboards and vocals plus
Dave Clarke on lead guitar and vocals who previously worked with The Beach Boys and The Noel Redding Band..
Formed by Mick Avory to keep the music of The Kinks alive, the Kast Off Kinks regularly perform at major venues throughout Europe.
“A full house, and a standing ovation. To anyone wondering about going, do not hesitate”
(The Stables, Milton Keynes)
“ A great night's entertainment … made up of both classic hits and album tracks”
This should prove to be one of the great nights to remember in KinK's Heath!
Please note that the Hare & Hounds is an upstairs standing venue just like the old Ritz Ballroom.
