The Honeycombs burst onto the pop scene with the worldwide hit number one “Have I The Right” in 1964 followed by another Howard and Blakely composition “That’s The Way” followed by other hits “Is It Because” and the Ray Davies penned “Something Better Beginning”.
The New Honeycombs have all toured with one of the founder members and are currently on tour in their own right in The Rock Around The Sixties Theatre Tour recreating authentic live music sounds of the Sixties and reflecting The Honeycombs hits.
The current line-up includes:-
Angela Rose – Lead Vocals began singing professionally when she left school and spent many years working on cruise ships and cabaret around Europe. She was the lead singer with the 70’s chart group Butterscotch for 8 years prior to joining “The Honeycombs”.
Paul Bonner – Drums / Lead Vocals is the band leader and during his career has been the drummer with 60’s /70’s chart group Katch 22. He has also worked with Wayne Fontana, the Easybeats and many other well-known names from the 60’s & 70’s.
John Quinn – Lead Guitar / Lead Vocals has been on the music scene for more years than he will admit. He was the lead guitarist with 60’s group The Raiders, has worked with 60’s hit maker “Twinkle” and more recently guitarist and vocalist with 60’s Mersey band “The Fourmost “. John brings musical excellence, a Liverpool accent and a touch of humour to the event!
Jeff Malin – Bass Guitar / Vocals became a musician when he left school in 1963. He was very much part of the 60’s music scene as a member of “The Beat Syndicate” who were the support band for many famous artists such as “The Rolling Stones”, “Tom Jones”, “Dusty Springfield”, “Lulu & The Luvvers”, “Peter & Gordon”… The list goes on!!
Together they re-produce an authentic 60’s sound with four-part harmony vocals and promise you a trip down musical memory lane including, of course, a sample of “The Honeycombs” hits. The group also incorporate a section of comedy cabaret incorporating a feature on ‘old adverts from the 60’s’.
Megan Chungh – Park Hotel, Newcastle
Just a quick one to say how amazing everything went at our function thanks to Big Foot Events! From the very beginning they were extremely helpful and made sure everything was looked after without giving me too much hassle either! The Photo Booth, Candy Floss Cart and Popcorn Cart were all fantastic and a great hit with all of our family and friends and the staff running them were absolutely amazing! They were all set up and ready to go well before the event started and made sure they were always helpful! So a massive thank you to you all!
Amy Casey – Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council
I just wanted to say a big thank you for being a part of our snapdragon festival this year. Once again Rex was a massive hit and the children and adults loved him. The two members of staff that came to the event were very professional and catered to any requests we had.
George – Golden Sands Holiday Park
We absolutely love having Noughty 90’s here, such lovely people and amazing sets! They had everyone up and dancing on the dance floor.
Mr & Mrs Pravitt – Private Wedding, Stoke On Trent
It was absolutely incredible, I cannot thank you guys enough for how amazing it all was. The Ranger and Rex were outstanding, every single guest loved them to pieces and we certainly had the wow factor for our wedding. Just the idea of having a dinosaur is one thing, but the way Rex, Trixxie and the Ranger worked tirelessly to entertain the entire wedding party just added to the overall effect. We've had non-stop comments from those who attended saying it was pure magic, videos of the experience have gone viral and we even had guests from the hotel desperate to catch a glimpse of Rex. I cannot overstate how incredible you all have been, from the day a weirdo messaged Lauren asking for a dinosaur at their wedding, to speaking with Jade to coordinate everything and then finally meeting Rex and the Ranger on the big day. Everything worked out a million times better than I ever thought possible, and my dad was very pleased to see Rex was appropriately dressed with his bow tie. Amazing, amazing, amazing, thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts.
Andrew Edmeads – Frimley Lodge, Surrey
Both acts went down a storm at the weekend. Really pleased with everything! Madonna did all the hits and even included some iconic costume changes! She had the audience up Voguing at the front! ABBA Fever had the crowd on their feet from the start and would be a worthy headliner in the future.
Barry Herridge – Ely Beet Sports & Social Club
The evening on Saturday was wonderful, Planet Abba we're superb and also so welcoming to the audience. As you know this is the 3rd year in a row I have used your agency and as always you have given me a wonderful evening, thank you.
