Strawberry Fayre is one successful 70s band seen from the early 70’s to the mid 80’s touring Europe. They have supported bands such as Mud, Sweet, The Fortunes, The Searchers, Marty Wilde, The Pete Best Band (ex Beatles drummer) and many more.
After splitting up they followed their own careers for many years. They have now reformed as a trio enjoying the music more than ever.
The band now comprises 3 talented musicians. Great songs with harmonies make for a fantastic night’s entertainment. A quality PA system big enough for a room that holds 500 people or an outside event and a second smaller PA for smaller venues.
Two one hour spots … and more !!!! Light show, lasers and smoke machine (optional). (a 70s band usually has these :-))
