Gigs 1966

A selective, but fairly exhaustive list of who played where and when in Bournemouth and the surrounding area in 1966

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

By 1966 there was definitely something in the air as things turned decidedly strange for The Beatles, with the acidic “Tomorrow Never Knows” on the “Revolver” album and the thinly disguised reference to LSD in the title of their single “Day Tripper”. The Stones consolidated their position as Britain’s second most popular band and The Kinks, The Who, The Hollies, Manfred Mann and The Yardbirds became chart regulars, although some of the old guard from the original Beat Boom had fallen by the wayside. Newbies included The Troggs, the Spencer Davis Group, The Small Faces, Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich and The Easybeats from Australia. The American old school crooners Jim Reeves and Frank Sinatra both had huge hits with “Distant Drums” and “Strangers in the Night” respectively, while Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, The Beach Boys, The Lovin’ Spoonful and the Mamas and Papas put in a strong showing. Soul was becoming ever more popular with the Four Tops, Ike and Tina Turner, Percy Sledge and Otis Redding all scoring hits.
