when the world was changing… and the earth moved for everyone!
Experience the two greatest decades in rock… with The Total 60s and 70s Show by Johnny Warman's Magic Bus.
Back in 1980 Johnny Warman - newly signed to Elton John's Rocket Records - embarks on a 7 date tour with XTC, where they presented their "Cruel Sea" Album...and this was a start of a friendship across 39 years, as Dave Gregory and Johnny Warman are back working and playing together and paying tribute to the Greatest Bands and Artists that turned them both into successful musicians.
With the brilliant Steve Tilling on bass and amazing Greg Pringle on drums, The Total 60s & 70s Rock Show has it all. Dave is one of the finest guitarists on the Planet and apart from XTC, Dukes of Stratosphear and Tin Spirits, he is also a member of one of the greatest Prog Rock Bands on the Planet "Big Big Train"
Johnny Warman first signed to Ringo Starr's label and recorded his first solo album "Hour Glass" at Tittenhurst Park, where John Lennon recorded "Imagine" and was signed to RCA in Germany
to great critical acclaim, launching the album at The Planetarium
He then signed to Elton John's Rocket Records and recorded his critically acclaimed album "Walking into Mirrors" which sold over a 100,000 copies Worldwide and had a Top Ten Hit in Australia featuring Peter Gabriel, amongst others. He recorded "From the Jungles To The New Horizons" - which included Kiki Dee and this work again was very highly praised.
Their passion for musical performance has never waned and they both love the music and artists from the Sixties and Seventies that turned them both into the successful artists that they are and it really shines through in their stage shows. Dave is meticulous about his sound and the remarkable instruments that he uses. It transports you back instantly to those times because he knows the sounds so well and his technique is breathtaking so if you love guitar, come along and watch a true master at work. Johnny loves performing and he has never looked back, working with Ringo Starr, Peter Gabriel, David Gilmour, Asia, Humble Pie, Cheap Trick, Harry Nilsson, Skunk Baxter, Phil Ramone, The Heavy Metal Kids, Mickie Most, Adam Ant...the list goes on!
They both still put as much into their Shows as they ever did and love creating the Sounds of The Sixties and Seventies - The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Kinks, Cream, Jimi Hendrix, The Animals, The Searchers, Them, The Equals, The Pretty Things, The Troggs and a few surprises.
Let us transport you back to those times...
when we were shiny and new and it was all so exciting !!!
