View dates and book

A heart-warming, musical homage to the great American singer-songwriters of the late 60’s and early 70’s, featuring beautiful timeless songs from James Taylor, Carole King, Simon & Garfunkel, Joni Mitchell, Don Mclean, Bread, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, America, The Byrds, Mamas and Papas, Carly Simon and more!

The first class 5-piece band will bring you classic songs from this golden era when American Folk-pop topped the charts in U.K. and U.S. including ‘You’ve got a Friend’, ‘You make me feel like a natural woman’, ‘American Pie’, ‘Fire and Rain’, ‘Big Yellow Taxi’, ‘River’, ‘Starry Starry Night’, ‘Horse with no Name’, ’Mrs Robinson’, ‘Make it with you’, ‘The Boxer’, ‘California Dreaming’, ‘You’re So Vain’, ‘Woodstock’, ‘Leaving on a Jet Plane’ and more!

The show has a relaxed acoustic style, matching the spirit of Laurel Canyon, the suburb of L.A. where many of these artists were neighbours.

With an intimate narrative including images, the show is at times poignant, sometimes amusing, always delightful.

Produced and Hosted by Singer-guitarist Paul Wheeler (TV Director, ‘Live at the Apollo’) with Sophie Langham (West-End actress-singer and formerly Eastenders).

“Amazing! Captures the zeitgeist of the era perfectly. A unique musical journey, and a must-see for all lovers of good music. 10/10!” – KID JENSEN, Broadcaster
