Solid Sixties Gold
With Geoff Dorsett
Geoff’s wealth of musical knowledge from the 60s, 70s, 80s & 90s is crammed into two hours of music heaven!
Geoff started his career at the age of 13 and, within five years, was one of the Mecca Group’s top DJs, being used as their opening act for their new venues nationwide. During the 60s, when package tours were at the height of their popularity, Geoff could be found compering shows with The Animals, The Kinks, Spencer Davis, Roy Orbison and Chuck Berry, and he MCd for the second-ever Led Zeppelin show.
