Don’t miss what is officially the last chance to see the legend Gerry Marsden before he retires along side his band. Gerry and the Pacemakers burst onto the scene with three consecutive number one hits – How Do You Do It, I Like It and You’ll Never Walk Alone. Now, the iconic band return to Hastings to perform in this special show, alongside special guests The Merseybeats & Steve Ellis of the Love Affair.
Pat Burgess… We saw them in Toronto a while back, still as good as ever especially Ferry cross the Mersey and You’ll never walk alone
Josie Lawson… When I was 15/16 years at home I had a 4 track tape recorder…I sang on it Gerry and the Pacemakers song You’ll Never Walk Alone..Yep, had a voice in those days…Was my favorite, I just loved the brilliance of the main singer Gerry…
Mind you, I was alone in the dining room of my family home…after, I found out my mother and brother heard me, and that is how I knew my voice was what I wished it to be…at that time I didn’t know that I wouldn’t become a singer, as my father was in his early years, but I did go onto open ‘mic’ my poetry.
Trevor Walker… Brilliant band ! What a good night to look forward to 👍

Andre Martin… Well done Alan, following the good music as always – great number this with an interesting personal story for Gerry.
Jim Hobbs…Great song, well sung, well produced. A ‘Prime Cut’. Anybody remember ‘Porky Prime Cut’ etched into the inner ring of some classic eighties singles?
Alan Esdaile… Remember Porky Prime Cuts Jim Hobbs on the records but forgot the story behind it. Here is what Discogs says about it… George Peckham, better known as “Porky” [as in “A Porky Prime Cut”] is a lacquer-cutting and mastering engineer with an illustrious career that includes work on the Beatles, Genesis and Led Zeppelin catalogue. He started his career in disc cutting as a trainee at Apple in 1968 and his signature can be found in the dead/wax runout grooves of many classic and obscure Rock, Punk, Post-Punk and New-Wave records that were pressed in the UK. Porky would often include cryptic and humorous messages on his work [eg. “You’ll Never Work Again” is inscribed on the A side runout of The Fall’s LP “Totale’s Turns (It’s Now Or Never)”]. http://www.discogs.com/artist/380591-George-Peckham
