Event Details

For many of us of a "certain age", "Young Girl" is one of the songs from our youth which are hardwired into our musical memory. The intro is immediately recognisable and we all know (most of) the lyrics of the song that was a No. 1 hit in 1968 for Gary Puckett & The Union Gap. It was the band's follow up single to their first record, "Woman, Woman", which had reached No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 in August 1967 and over the next few years more chart success followed with "Lady Willpower", "Over You", and "Don't Give in to Him" before the original Union Gap broke up in 1971.

In 1974, "Young Girl" was re-released, reaching No. 5 in the UK Singles Charts and, on the back of this success, Gary Puckett, by now pursuing a solo career, went on tour in the UK. It was then that a young drummer & percussionist called Ges Rogers joined Gary as one of the "new" Union Gap Band for the UK tour and later went to California with him.

Fast forward a few decades (!) and the Ges Rogers Union Gap came into being about 18 months ago when Ges got together with a group of fellow professional musicians to play, not just the music of Gary Puckett but the hits of the 60s and 70s made famous by the pop groups of that great era, and found that the audience response to their music was hugely enthusiastic. Indeed, the band is in constant demand throughout its home stomping ground of the Southern Costa Blanca and so T.M. Lions are delighted to be able to bring Union Gap to Moraira for what will be the Lions' final fund-raising concert of 2016.

So, for an evening of pure nostalgia, when we were all so very young, when every tune is inextricably linked to a memory, when the Ford Capri was "the car you always promised yourself", when trousers were flared, lapels were wide and ties were kippered, do please book your seats for this one by contacting our Event Coordinator, by telephone on (0034) 966 491 917 or email colinlilley1424@gmail.com. Tickets are priced at just 15 euros - who says we can't turn back time?
