GIVEAWAY: Walk down memory lane with 1960s icons Herman’s Hermits

When talking about British Invasion bands of the 1960s, aside from the Beatles, the conversation could not be complete without mentioning Herman’s Hermits.

With a literal cornucopia of pop hits including I’m Into Something Good, Mrs Brown You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter, I’m Henry VIII, I Am, Listen People and Leaning On A Lamp Post, Herman’s Hermits played no small part in changing the face of popular music forever.

Mrs Brown and No Milk Today provided the band massive Antipodean success with both tracks hitting number one in the Australian charts. They also enjoyed a raft of Aussie top tens including There’s A Kind Of Hush, A Must To Avoid, Silhouettes and I’m Henry VIII.

Herman’s Hermits first toured Australia in 1966 on the ‘Caravan of Stars 66’ tour with Tom Jones in support.  

Since 1971 and the departure of singer Peter Noone to pursue a solo career, the group has never stopped.

Original member Barry 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 concerts per year.

“It’s all about the songs”, Barry said.

“And we were very lucky to have had a lot of hits in the sixties that people still want to hear today. We’re very lucky!”

Catch Herman’s Hermits when they bring their Greatest Hits show to Belmont 16s on Thursday 29 August. Get your tickets here.
