Searching for Saints

Share this story

The distinctive jangling sound of the 12 string guitar and the rich harmonies embellishing their immaculate vocals have without doubt assured British group, The Searchers, of a lasting place in the history of popular music throughout the world.

From their early beginnings in the late 1950’s as a skiffle group formed by John McNally and a bunch of friends, through to the heady days of the 1960’s as teenage idols, the band has comfortably settled into a position well deserved by a group whose sound has influenced some of the most important artists of our generation.

The Byrds, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, Marshall Crenshaw and so many others have happily acknowledged their debt to The Searchers for providing inspirational music.

The atmosphere couldn’t get much more electric than when they play such hits like ‘Sweets For My Sweet’, ‘Sugar and Spice’, ‘Needles and Pins’, ‘Love Potion Number 9’, ‘Don’t Throw Your Love Away’, ‘Someday We’re Gonna Love Again’ and ‘When You Walk in the Room’.

The Searchers are a band not to be missed when they take to the stage for a live performance.

Don’t miss the legendary The Searchers at the St Marys Leagues Club on Friday, February 15 at 9.15pm. Entry is free.
