Marmalade first came to the attention of the record buying public in 1968; they had their first two releases in May and October of that year, and both did well in the charts. However, it was a cheeky cover of The Beatles Ob La Di La Da that eventually got them the number 1 slot. It stayed in the top position for three weeks in December of that year. (By the way, if you're familiar with the Ob La Di song the chances are now we've put it into your head it's likely to stay there all day, sorry)
The band, originally from Scotland, had an excellent reputation for being down to earth and extremely commercial and they proved that without a doubt, with millions of record sales throughout their career. Marmalade gained their popularity with their harmonious voices and thrilling performances and have been delighting audiences of all ages since the 1960's.
Their current date sheet is a testament to the fact that this band are working hard and still very much in demand. In one testimonial a very satisfied fan has said that the band 'bounded on the stage and had the audience in the palm of their hands'; familiar and fabulous performances, that describes the perfect type of entertainment to be offering your guests, wouldn't you say?
The talented musicians that make up today's Marmalade are still a very popular live band and are firm with holiday parks and hotel, theaters and festivals and as you would imagine are an essential booking for 60's and 70's themed events.
2016 see's the band performing gigs throughout the UK including Somerset, Whitby and Skegness and European bookings for Germany and Holland.
