Sixties Explosion – Tribute Show
August 19| 12/10
Enjoy a night of magical nostalgia from these four experienced musicians who take their audiences back to the most influential, high energy, decade in pop music history. Listen once again to those haunting melodies that were the musical backdrop of that decade. The FOD Band have a unique insight into the Legends of the sixties – Lead Guitarist Martin Donald was formerly Musical Director to the Drifters and the Platters and Lead Singer Geoff Thomas has appeared on many sixties shows featuring stars such as Gerry & The Pacemakers, The Searchers, and The Supremes. The FOD Band also backed Tony Jackson the original lead singer of The Searchers when he returned to the stage in the 1990`s.
The two ‘Simons’ are the driving force in the band. The mighty Simon Dove, who’s drum feature has long been a big part of the show and Simon Rownes on bass and vocals – a fantastic talent who adds an amazing dimension to the group. Together as The FOD Band they make the Sixties come alive.

I was truly entertained at Braintree Football Club last night by the legendary Fat Old Dad band. It was simply a great fun night with something for everybody. Great Music and plenty of madcap fun.`
Dave Heaney – Leisure FM Radio
Fat Old Dad`s Christmas Show took place in a very cosy Halstead Empire. Charismatic lead man Geoff dressed up as ` Tina Turner ` and `Flower Power Man`, multi-skilled Martin looked wonderful in white playing guitar, banjo and harmonica, drummer. Simon jammed energetically and bass guitarist Rownsey did a mean Tom Robinson. They really created a spirit in the sky – this band`s spirit seems indestructible. Pat Rudkins – Halstead Gazette
