Peter Noone

Hi Kent -  
A packed house came to Hoover Auditorium at Lakeside, Ohio, on Saturday, June 25th, to see a huge fan favorite, Herman's Hermits starring Peter Noone.
I have seen them perform many times and they always put on a very fun and entertaining show.
At 68, Peter Noone, the original Herman, and lead singer of the Hermits, sounds fantastic, and dances around stage like a teenager.
He was backed by the Hermits, who have been with Peter for a few years now.  Vance Brescia on lead guitar and also music director, Dave Ferara on drums, and local Ohioans, and my old friends from Brook Park, Billy Sullivan on lead guitar and Rich Spina on keyboards.
Peter did not disappoint with many hits to choose from: Silhouettes, Leaning On A Lamp, Henry the VIII, Something Good, Kind of Hush, Wonderful World, etc. ...  as well as his usual "schtick" of Tom Jones, Davy Jones, Johnny Cash and Mick Jagger.
A great time was had by all!

There are few entertainers out there who can put on as consistently an entertaining show as Peter Noone and Herman's Hermits ... we LOVE 'em ... and see them every chance we get. (In fact, they were just back in town at The Arcada a few weeks ago.)
Thanks for the photos ... check their website ... if they're headed your way, this is a show you won't want to miss ... ALWAYS a fun night out featuring some GREAT '60's music from one of the best.  (kk)

Don'tcha just love it when things work out and it all comes together???

Tom's review was supposed to run about ten days ago ... but for some reason we had difficulty accessing the photos ... 

By that point, Tom was already on vacation in Eugene, Oregon, watching the US Track And Field Olympic Trials ...

He didn't get back until early Tuesday Morning, resent the photos, we pulled it all together in order to do a pre-post for this morning.

In the meantime, yesterday we received this bit of Herman's Hermits trivia from Me-TV ... so now we're able to share THIS with you, too!  (VIII Things You May Not Have Known About Peter Noone and Herman's Hermits!)
