The 565 Specials

The 565 Specials showcase one of the most influential decades in the history of music.
1956 to 1965 incorporates two very distinctive styles.
The swing and ballad era of Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Johnny Mathis and so many more and the explosion of Rock n Roll in the late 50s with Bill Haley, Jerry Lee, Buddy Holly and of course Elvis.

From this point the Brits dominated the pop scene with artists like Cliff, Adam faith and Marty Wilde.
1956 to 1965 also saw the birth of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones who went on to conquer America.

Come along, listen and dance to your favourites as The 565 Specials take you through this unforgettable decade of musical change. Enjoy the memories.
