Shadows Tribute and Classic 50's & 60's Rock n Roll vocal and more type of band in mind? We're Kent based, with over 37 yrs experience. who have played with 50s and 60s stars of yesteryear, played all over the UK and parts of Europe. We have been on stage with none other then the late great Jet Harris and Brian 'Liquorice' Locking plus Bruce Welch himself! Who incidentally, has asked us to open many a show for him at the Lakeside Country Club Frimley Green, Surrey, in a Shadows based show called Shadowmania, which had an average audience of 1,100 people plus. We are on YouTube under 'The Runaways at Shadowmania' Please note the filming at these venues were done by someone else, so apologies about the quality, but it does give you a little insight to who we are and what we are about. Myself on drums Tim and GB our 2 guitarists are the original band members since we started way back in 1982! Its a full packed show we have for you, full of fun, classic hits, power numbers and of course a drum solo with audience participation! If it was possible, we would dearly love to play at a venue for you. We would normally charge £500 for a standard evenings entertainment if we were playing locally so that gives a rough fee guide for you to allow for plus the travelling/overnight staying costs. We have got access to a sound engineer who has worked with us for over 4 years, so if one is required for a venue this is also available.

Agent at Osjed Entertainment Bookings: Ivan has a great stage presence when performing with The Runaways, not only does he provide great entertainment with his music but also adds humour to his performance. Ivan is a great hit with the audience and can comfortably perform in front of large crowds. I highly recommend booking Ivan and seeing The Runaways!î‚¡ September 23, 2014, Ed was Ivan's client again this year at Brentwood Theatre in aid of St Francis Hospice.
