In 1962 The Searchers were merely four kids making a few extra pounds playing small gigs around their home town of Liverpool, One year later, The Searchers found themselves at number one in the British charts with Sweets for My Sweet.

Following Beatles and a host of other combos from the north of England they became a part of the golden decade of British pop music. The Searchers created their own highly individual sound, with their soaring vocal harmonies and rich jangley sound of the twelve string guitar  - they knew they were on to a good thing.

The Sixties music phenomenon had begun and The Searchers very first recording, Sweets For My Sweet rocketed straight to number one.  The hits kept coming; Don't Throw Your Love Away, Needles and Pins, Love Potion Number Nine, Sugar and Spice, Someday We're Gonna Love Again, When You Walk In The Room, What Have They Done To The Rain, Goodbye My Love, Bumble Bee, He's Got No Love, Take It Or Leave It, Have You Ever Loved Somebody.

The resurgence of the sixties sound in the 1980's brought new life to The Searchers, One of the many highlights of their renewed success was, without doubt, their appearance at Wembley Stadium in June 1989, in front of 80,000 people on each of the two days, as guests of Cliff Richard celebrating his 30 years in show business.

Today, The Searchers continue to headline major theatre tours around the country and have recently started performing their own special solo concerts, giving their ever increasing fans a great opportunity to enjoy a range of material including their well known hits and rarely seen acoustic performed songs.
