When you think of The Searchers you think of the distinctive jangling sound of the twelve string guitar and the rich harmonies embellishing their immaculate vocals which have without doubt assured The Searchers of a lasting place the history of popular music throughout the world.

What you should also consider is longevity as this iconic legendary group is about to celebrate its fiftieth year in the pop music industry. Many contemporaries disbanded when their star faded only to reunite once the nostalgia boom kicked in with the onset of the eighties. Not so The Searchers. There were changes of course but the continuity was unbroken.

The Searchers now...a four piece consisting of John McNally, Chris Curtis, Mike Pender and Tony Jackson, the classic line-up that the great British public saw crash into the charts one year on, and who followed in the wake of The Fab Four to establish themselves on the hitherto unassailable American market, threw all of their cards on the table and headed for Hamburg`s Star Club where they shared the stage with great American legends like Ray Charles, Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis and Gene Vincent. The German public loved The Searchers. The fact that the band was almost unknown in their native land mattered not a jot. British rock ruled. They also raved about bands from other parts of the U.K. too and they particularly admired the London outfit Cliff Bennett & The Rebel Rousers whose young bass player, Frank Allen, was to figure in their fortunes in the not too distant future.

As we speak retirement does not seem to be an option. Last year saw them as busy as ever, having visited many countries around the world, including Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada, Germany, Holland, Denmark, Norway and Sweden. But it doesn’t stop there, TV, Radio, personal appearances, concert tours, luxury cruises, corporate events, private parties, all figure in their never ending touring schedules. Some countries are yet to be visited and others are just waiting to be rediscovered. If there is a venue to perform in, The Searchers want to play there and they are just waiting to be asked. A career that has lasted this long is not an exercise in survival. It is really about doing what you love and being a part of something you have pride in.
