The band were a top stage and recording act in the 1960s and 70s with 17 hits to their name, but are still touring as far as Australia and doing regular summer seasons at Blackpool.
On Friday, August 12, they will join the cast of Cromer's Seaside Special for a special late night money-spinning show raising funds for Cromer Carnival, the Water Rats and the children's holiday-of-a-lifetime charity Dreamflight.

Founder Bachelor John Stokes said their popularity waned during the late 80's and they had some difficult decisions to make, to continue or to update with modern pop songs.
But he maintained the belief that their market was with a mature audience and that their hit songs would stand the test of time if presented in a more entertaining way.

The Seaside Special cast will be performing having already completed an evening performance and ahead of doing matinee and evening shows on the Saturday.
Also on the bill is North Norfolk Radio presenter Sue Marchant, who will be singing.
