The Equals
A British pop, R&B and rock group formed in North London, England in 1965. They are best remembered for their million-selling chart-topper “Baby, Come Back”, though they had several other chart hits in the UK and Europe. Eddy Grant founded the group with Pat Lloyd, John Hall, and brothers Derv and Lincoln Gordon, and they were noted as being the first major interracial rock group in the UK and one of the few racially mixed bands of the era.
The Casuals
A four-piece British pop group in the 1960s and early 70s, best known for their hit Jesamine which reached number 2 in 1968. The new Casuals are a result of member changes over the years’ but the legend continues with the band performing Casuals hits plus a selection of great songs from the 60s. A superb five-piece show band.
