When the 1960’s British Invasion hit worldwide, Herman’s Hermits were one of the biggest groups out of the UK. Their Australian No. 1 hits, ‘Mrs. Brown you’ve got a lovely daughter’ and ‘No milk today’ made the group one of the most popular groups of the day here in Australia. The No. 1’s were followed up by 8 more Top 10 hits including I’m Henry VIII, There’s a kind of hush, A must to avoid, Silhouettes and many more songs that cracked the top 20.
The concept of the 6 O’Clock Hop is to put the show on at a more convenient time in the winter months of August and September at 6pm, where audience members are encouraged to get an early dinner and enjoy a 2 hour show packed full of hits, in the knowledge they’ll be safely home at a reasonable time.
Since 1971 and the departure of Peter Noone to pursue a solo career in the entertainment business, the group has never stopped. Original member Barry (the Bean) Whitwam. has guided the band from strength to strength into one of the hardest working acts in the business – they still average more than 200 one-night stands per year – and reckon they maintain their stamina by having an amazing sense of humour.
