12:31pm Wednesday 2nd October 2013 in What's On
ELTON John, Lulu and Sir Bob Geldof count among the famous faces who have either sampled their sound or joined them on stage.
But fans of sixties music in Somerset will be first to see The Overtures as they embark on their Bootleg Sixties Sight and Sound Showswinging tour in Yeovil tonight (Wednesday).
The Overtures are a tribute to a golden decade for the music industry, covering hits by artists including The Kinks, The Doors, Simon & Garfunkel and The Byrds, enhanced by video footage, newsreel and snappy era dressing.
After hiring the band for his wedding, Elton enlisted them as entertainment for his New Year’s Eve Party, where they played to 17,000 fans.
Tickets for the Bootleg Sixties show, which starts at 7.30pm tonight at the Octagon Theatre, cost £21.50. To book, visit www.octagon-theatre.co.uk
