The mid-60’s music scene was dominated by British Groups, three of which became household names – The Beatles – The Rolling Stones and …..Herman’s Hermits, who are one of the most successful groups throughout the world.
From their beginning in Manchester, England on April 1st 1964, the band has chalked up over 23 top twenty single records 10 hit albums, 3 major movies and countless television shows and concert tours all over the world – up to date they have total record sales of over 75 million.
Since 1971 and the departure of Peter Noone to pursue a solo career, the group has never stopped. Original member, Barry (The Bean) Whitwam, has guided the group from strength to strength into one of the hardest working bands in the business – they still average more then 200 one night stands per year – and reckon they maintain their stamina by having an amazing sense of humour.
Their touring schedule takes them to Germany, Belgium, Holland, Denmark, the Scandinavian countries, Japan, USA , Canada Australia and new Zealand on a regular basis and still find time to perform in their home country the United Kingdom, packing in the audiences at every venue and delighting them with their solid musicianship, vocal ability and dynamic stage presence. The ‘Golden Oldies’ still make up a large part of their show – much to the enjoyment of their fans, who can resist singing along to Mrs Brown You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter, Silhouettes, Dandy, Can’t You Hear My Heart Beat, There’s A Kind Of Hush, No Milk Today, Something Is Happening, Sunshine Girl, Henry V111, and many more too numerous to mention.
Anew addition to Herman’s Hermits is lead guitarist and vocalist Paul Cornwell. Paul was bass player and vocalist with The Union Gapuk up until the early part of 2013, Paul is still great friends with the guys, loved every moment being with The Union Gapuk, but also feels that performing in Herman’s Hermits is another great string to his bow, or should that be guitar.
From the Sixties, through to the 21st century HERMAN’S HERMITS are still INTO SOMETHING GOOD
