DORIS Day, Dean Martin and Elvis Presley were among the acts being celebrated at the latest Advertiser tribute show.
Well over 170 guests attended the 1950s tribute show at Pastures Lodge in Mexborough last Tuesday.
Following a two-course meal, the entertainment began with the music of Matt Monro, with classics such as Born Free and Portrait of my Life, followed by performers bringing to life the hits of Doris Day and Elvis Presley.
When Elvis left the building, a Rat Pack line-up paying tribute to Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr took to the stage to perform favourites including Fly Me To The Moon and Everybody Loves Somebody.
Parties who attended the show included Hudson Haven Sheltered Housing from Wombwell, Shipcroft Sheltered Housing from Wombwell and Garden Lane Nursing Home from Conisbrough.
There were some special celebrations in the audience, too, including a 60th wedding anniversary and the 60th birthday of Geoffrey Cooke from Rotherham and 74th birthday of Jo Betteridge from Whiston.
Guest Pauline Mills from Bolton-upon-Dearne said: “The show was great value for money — a delicious meal followed by a full afternoon of entertainment — I thoroughly enjoyed it.”
Keith Richards from Thorpe Hesley added: “It was a first class afternoon, great entertainment and a lovely meal.”
The next show is a Salute to the 1960s on Tuesday, April 15, and a new event, a Tribute to the 1970s, follows on May 12, both at the Pastures Lodge. Tickets for both events are £16 and are available by calling our Events Ticket Line on 01709 571111 or from the Pastures Lodge on 01709 579599.
Event organiser, Tracie Midgley said: “This was the first time we had done the Frank, Doris and Elvis event and it proved a great success.
“We now have people asking as they leave when the next one is, as they are so popular.
“We hope that both the 1960s show in April and our new one for 2014 – the 1970s tribute — will provide a wider choice of events for all age groups. Thank you to everyone who supports these events.”
