The Searchers - When you walk in the room, Sugar and spice, What have they done to the rain, Goodbye my love, Take me for what I'm worth, Needles and pins and Don't throw your love away are some of my favourites.
John Cross the original lead singer and bass player, decided to reform Strawberry Fayre to bring back the fabulous sounds of that era. The band now consists of four experienced musicians and, with three of them singing lead vocals and four part harmonies featuring throughout their performance, this leads to an excellent night of entertainment.

Originally founded as a skiffle group in Liverpool in 1959 by John McNally and Mike Pender (Michael John Prendergast), the band took their name from the classic 1956 John Wayne western The Searchers. Prendergast claims that the name was his idea, but McNally ascribes it to ‘Big Ron’ Woodbridge, their first lead singer. The arguments still rage.
