Here comes The Tremeloes – again

By Jack Marsh

Well, I have to tell you, having been a fan of 60s music my whole life, and considering the fact that I’m only 25 years of age, this last year has been an absolute dream.
That’s because I’ve been working for The Tremeloes as what I like to call ‘The Tech Bloke’. This has been an absolute dream; I’ve watched the band grow from strength to strength, and I’ve also been working away on things like their new website and new Facebook Page.
With all that said, I have a lot to tell you about!
Firstly, we would like to tell you there has been a change to our line-up. Taking you back a bit, the fabulous Rick Westwood officially retired in 2012, and in April 2019, he agreed to come out of retirement to re-join the band, but with the understanding there would only be the occasional gig.
But as it turns out, two tours then quickly developed and rather than let the boys down, he decided it would be best if we replaced him.
Here enters Eddie Wheeler who of course, you all know as vocalist and lead guitarist of the amazing Vanity Fare. Never fear though, Eddie will continue to perform in Vanity Fare as well as The Tremeloes, and the boys can’t wait to have him on the journey! A very busy time for Mr Wheeler, indeed!
As mentioned, the boys have a very busy year ahead. Firstly, they have the “All Star Sixties Tour” from the 12th to 19th of June. That is a really special tour as the line-up is: The Tremeloes, The Equals, The Fortunes, and The Mamas & The Papas UK.
From a special tour to one of the band’s biggest tours, and that’s the “Sixties Gold Tour 2020” from October 9 to November 22, and the biggest line-up yet, featuring: The Tremeloes, Herman’s Hermits, The Merseybeats, The Marmalade, Steve Ellis (from 4th November 4 to November 22 only), Barry Ryan (from October 9 to t November 1 only), The Mamas & The Papas UK, Gerry’s Pacemakers and Dave Berry. The boys also have a lot of gigs that aren’t part of the tours so please check those out! There are still tickets available for both tours, although they are selling quickly), and the boys truly can’t wait to see you.
There is also lots of other stuff going on and I’m updating the website and Facebook as soon as I get news in, so I invite you to check those out because they are not to be missed.
For all the latest news, tour dates, photographs, videos and other tomfoolery, go to: www.thetremeloes.co.uk
And for all the latest information and gossip, check out the Facebook Page www.facebook.com/officialtremeloes
That’s it for now! I truly hope you can get to a few of the gigs to see the boys because a Tremeloes gig is an absolute treat that I promise you will all love. Good Day, Sunshine!
