 2017 sees a celebration of the 60th anniversary from 1957 when Cole Mathieson set up the Concorde Jazz Club in the back room of the old Bassett Hotel in Burgess Road at the top of The Common. The rest is history and you can read all about on the club website - The Concorde is the world's oldest jazz club that is still run by the original owner! Why not check out his own story - a fascinating book that is available from the club or online

Cole Mathieson- Diamond Geezer!

(I am repeating the basic overview below as before- it more or less sums up the idea of these very successful shows)

The well established 'Back To The Sixties' is back for another great night and features the cream of classic 60s bands, singers and DJs from the best ever decade.  Original artistes who performed around the Southampton area and all over the country, provide some great sounds with over four hours of live music plus fills from the local 'vintage' DJs.  Just take a look at the previous webpage reports for a feel of what it's all about.  The new premises in Stoneham Lane were founded in the early Seventies and now transformed into one of the finest music venues in the UK featuring many top names- just take a look at their own website. I have a dedicated webpage on my own site as well, which tells more of the legends that trod the old boards:

...............................................................................................................

This 'mini festival' has become well established over the last few years and witnessed some amazing performances from local Southampton musicians, many of them performing from the late Fifties and early Sixties.  Many of the guest artistes have flown in from all corners of the world and linked in with visiting family, friends and hooking up with old pals after several years away as well as making some great music. The Concorde audiences cover a wide age group but many of the 'Baby Boomers' hit the dance floor from the first note of the evening and keep it packed throughout the night- some 4/5 hours of classic 60s hits, laughs, surprises and much more.  The door proceeds go to the official Concorde Charity 'Pantomime' Fund that helps local childrens' charities, so we are hoping for another high turnout for this November show.  The money raised  provides trips out for local youngsters from difficult backgrounds and well supported by the local Mayor of Eastleigh and linked organisations.

 

Every year has been so good and so different, thanks to the wide variety of singers, bands and the 'vintage' DJs who come along to play some terrific 60s music in the breaks- just like the old dance hall days with live bands plus the Jocks  'spinning the platters'.  A really nostalgic night that brings back the memories of a carefree age and sees the older generation dancing to the same groups as the did back in the Swinging Sixties!  Also, the younger generations soak up the atmosphere as it gives them a taste of what it was all about- many of them wishing they had been born earlier!   It's also a great opportunity for musicians, friends, family and former fans to meet up and celebrate the best time to be young as well as enjoying a full evening of the best sounds ever from the bands, singers, DJs and others who were lucky enough to have been there in the early days!  For a really top night out, you can book a table in the restaurant area and enjoy the usual high standard Concorde 3 course meal as well as guaranteeing seats for the evening with a good view of the stage area.  Otherwise- just pay the basic door charge of £15.00 with limited seating, so best to be early when club doors open at 7pm.  The Concorde Moldy Fig Bar can be used for pre-show drinks or snacks so please get in touch to check out the options. If you are travelling some distance, then you may wish to book an overnight room  at the hotel part of the Concorde establishment.  Tables and hotel rooms need to be booked early due to high demand on these annual Sixties Shows.  See below for contact information.  For 2015 / 2016, we broadened the theme to include the Seventies as this covers more groups that have a wide repertoire of music, so yet another different feel to this fantastic night of pure nostalgia.  As in every year, we welcome our 'vintage' DJs who will be playing some more great 60s/70s mixes in between the fantastic live acts

Late addition! We are more than excited to have one of Southampton's top 60s R&B outfits back again. They reformed back in 2008 for our first ever 'Back to the Sixties' show and had not played together for some 40 years! The Meds recorded a few singles on the Pye label and supported many big names over that great decade - you can read more on my other webpages as listed below. This is an amazing scoop and many old fans will recall:
