The Bay City Rollers Story – Local Musician Si Mulvey returns to the Bay

October 2, 2012

The Bay City Rollers Story

In 1974 the world was to witness a new musical phenomenon the like of which had not been seen the days of Elvis and The Beatles. The music of the Bay City Rollers became the soundtrack for a generation of teenagers growing up in the mid 70’s. The face and voice of that soundtrack belonged to Les McKeown.

With Les leading the way, the band’s singles and albums shot to the number spot all over the globe. Massive hits such as ‘Bye Bye Baby’, ‘Shang A Lang’, ‘Summer Love Sensation’ and ‘Give A Little Love’ (to name just a few) propelled the band to world-wide superstardom and their trademark Scottish tartan was to be seen everywhere across the planet.

The Bay City Rollers Story is a celebration of those hectic days of Hit songs, Touring, TV Shows and the behind the scenes pandemonium that followed the band everywhere they went.

Renewed Les McKeown, has come through the extreme highs and lows of life’s great road and he is here to tell us all about it. All the hits songs are there and audiences are promised a fantastic night of fun and nostalgia as they take a trip back to those innocent days of growing up to the sounds of The Bay City Rollers.

The concert at the Babbacombe Theatre on the 4th October is a very special evening for the band as Les’s bass player Si Mulvey originally comes from Torquay.  Si has consistently been one of the great musicians to come out of the South Devon area.  Not only has he played regularly with Les over the last 10 years but also with The Osmonds and Dr & the Medics.  I have seen the Rollers play many times live and not only are they graced with some of the greatest songs every written they are without doubt the most highly acclaimed bands musically on the 70’s circuit.  I have spoken to Si recently and he can’t wait to come and play in front of his home town audience!
