Rock ’n’ Roll four-piece Doug Perkins and the Spectaculars come to Chorley next month to recreate the unique sound of the 1950s.

Emulating the greats from Presley to Perkins and Cochran to Cash, the band will take to the stage of Chorley’s Little Theatre on Saturday, February 6 at 7.30pm.

Harking back to a time when the size of the turn-ups on your jeans and how much grease you could pile in your hair determined your stature, they bring audiences a mixture of original material, authentic 1950s covers, and modern songs with a rockabilly vibe.

In July 2014, the group won the People’s Choice Award of the ‘Rock The House’ competition, earning them a performing slot at the Houses of Parliament.

In July 2013, they won Southport’s ‘Band Royale’ contest, beating 40 other bands to the top spot.

And they have also stormed the Chorley Live scene and performed their popular souns in front of thousands of fans at Preston’s Christmas lights switch-on.

Tickets costs £5 and are avaialable from Malcolm’s Musicland in Chapel Street, Chorley town centre, or by calling 01257 264362.
