MUSICIANS Chas & Dave promise to give the audience a night to remember when they perform at Bristol Hippodrome.
The show, on Tuesday, September 9, follows the release of their new album That’s What Happens on Warner Brothers Records, which reached the top 20. They also headlined The Royal Variety Show 2013.
Chas & Dave began writing and performing songs together in 1972, having been friends since the early sixties.
They reached the top 20 in 1979 with Gertcha, which became a nationwide catchphrase.
This was followed by The Sideboard Song (Got My Beer in the Sideboard Here).
In 1980 they hit the charts with Rabbit, which reached No8, and followed with a No2 record in 1982 titled Ain’t No Pleasing You.
This was followed by further hits Margate and London Girls.
In 1986 they had a top-six record with Snooker Loopy.
They have also written title songs for TV shows ’Till Death Do Us Part and Only Fools & Horses.
They are now celebrating their 50th anniversary by recording their first original album in 27 years which is a mixture of vintage rock ‘n’ roll songs and new renditions of their own rockney classics.
The album also features special guest stars such as Jools Holland, Buddy Holly’s drummer Jerry Allison and Hugh Laurie.
Chas & Dave have gained a cult audience of both young and old and due to public demand they are about to be seen together on stage once more.
