The Move

Saturday 1st June 2013 - Starts 8pm



The Move was one of the leading British rock bands of the 1960s. They scored nine Top 20 UK singles in five years and went on to become one of the best and most significant bands of their era.

Bev Bevan and Trevor Burton are both founding members of The Move, and over a period of around 6 years enjoyed huge success in Great Britain and Europe. The Move also built a reputation as one of the most respected and controversial bands of the sixties.

They often performed alongside the likes of Cream, The Who, The Rolling Stones, Joe Cocker, The Kinks, and The Byrds, and in 1968 toured the UK with Jimi Hendrix and Pink Floyd.

The band notched up 10 hit singles, including chart topper Blackberry Way and the first record ever to be played on BBC Radio One: Flowers In The Rain.

Following the tragic loss of ‘Move’ lead vocalist Carl Wayne to cancer in 2004, Bev and Trevor agreed to recreate the magic of ‘The Move’ and bring the band’s music to a new generation of fans.

The Move, featuring original members Trevor Burton and Bev Bevan (plus Neil Lockwood, Phil Tree, and Gordon Healer) now regularly perform around the world, including Ropetackle this June!
