The Silhouettes – Shadows Tribute

By Princes Theatre

Throughout the course of their musical union, the members of The Silhouettes have won over the hearts of music lovers from all walks of life. Performing at a variety of venues and making countless public appearances all the while recording new song versions, this talented Tribute Band has earned the admiration and affection of critics and fans alike. An evening of Shadows hits and hits they wrote for Cliff Richard are all featured in this evening of musical nostalgia.
Stephen Foster of BBC Radio Suffolk and Radio Caroline had this to say.
“Featuring four of this county’s leading musicians, The Silhouettes have spent much of this year working on both the audio and visual aspects of one of the most influential pop groups of all time. The Shadows were held in high esteem by their fellow musicians and millions of fans worldwide so The Silhouettes have been sure to get it right. After all, if you can’t do a job properly, then don’t do it at all.
A few week’s back Paul Gardner, Gary Nunn, Peter Riches and Sandy Sutherland unveiled their heartfelt project at the Summertime Ipswich event on the town’s waterfront. Their debut performance as The Silhouettes went down extremely well with the audience who were treated to superbly executed renditions of some of the greatest pop records ever made.
The Shadows were very much of their time. Their impeccable playing inspired budding guitarists galore and with Hank Marvin’s trademark guitar sound to the fore they dominated the charts for several years. The band had something of a second coming in the 1970s, even representing the UK at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1975.
The Shadows were the complete package. For that reason, putting a tribute band together requires attention to detail and dedication to the cause. The Silhouettes have both those qualities in abundance.”
