Gigs 1963

A selective, but fairly exhaustive list of who played where and when in Bournemouth and the surrounding area in 1963

The list is prefixed with a brief summary of some of the artists who made an impression in the UK music charts that year

After skiffle and the first wave of rock ‘n’ roll had faded, the music scene, both in the UK and America, was in a state of stagnation dominated by a plethora of  pretty boy solo singers, but salvation was at hand as 1963 was the big bang for the ‘Beat Boom’. By the summer the charts had an entirely new look as the old guard were swept aside by the new kids on the block spearheaded by The Beatles. Sure Cliff and the Shadows and Frank Ifield were still pulling their weight, but they were under threat from The Searchers, Gerry and the Pacemakers (the first artists to score three number ones with their first three singles), Brian Poole and the Tremeloes, the Dave Clark Five, Billy J Kramer and the Dakotas, The Fourmost and Freddie and the Dreamers. The top American acts to break the Anglo stranglehold included Roy Orbison, Elvis Presley, The Crystals, Ray Charles and Trini Lopez.
