Rockin' on Heaven's Door

Princess Theatre, Hunstanton

Stars of the rock and roll era were reincarnated to take Hunstanton by storm on Saturday.

Eddie Cochran (Rebel Dean) had the female members of the audience going weak at the knees, clad in well-fitting black leather trousers as he belted out Three Steps To Heaven, Summertime Blues and C'mon Everybody. He portrayed the charisma combined with an air of arrogance of the real Cochrane to perfection.

Buddy Holly (Essex-born Marc Robinson) opened with the classic Peggy Sue and continued into the popular hits Heartbeat and It Doesn't Matter Any More. He was then rejoined on stage by Cochrane in the Everley Brothers hit Bye Bye Love.

In an unbelievably realistic manner The Man in Black, Roy Orbison (Johnny Curtis), had the audience mesmerised as he performed Only The Lonely and California Blue.

He closed with a magical rendition of Crying.

In true Elvis style a scream went out as it was announced that Elvis was in the building – and sure enough the legend himself, aka Richard Atkins, dominated the stage with the presence of the King.

Not allowing mic problems faze him, he thrilled the crowd with all the greats, even going through the audience handing out scarves and kissing a few smitten ladies.

With the mannerisms perfected and completed by a white-tasselled jump-suit the fever pitch grew and it was hard to believe this wasn't actually the man himself.

This show brought together four talented singers as four rock and roll greats, complemented by a superb band.

At short notice Alex Yeats stood-in for regular drummer Dan Church and did a tremendous job supported by the rest of the band Andy Sneddon, John Healy, Kevin Hartnett and Gerry C.

This memorable show had the audience of a great age range dancing in the aisles, clapping and singing along.

The show returns to Hunstanton in July.
