Peter Noone of 60s British Invasion group Herman’s Hermits appears at the Ludlow Garage.
Herman’s Hermits helped lead the British Invasion in America in the 1960s. The band had eleven songs in the top ten like “I’m Into Something Good,” “Can’t You Hear My Heartbeat,” “Silhouettes,” “No Milk Today,” “There’s a Kind of Hush.” The group also released novelty songs that became massive sellers, like “Mrs. Brown You Have a Lovely Daughter” and “I’m Henry VIII I Am,” along with a handful of others, even outselling The Beatles in America in 1965. Their list of beloved hits all still play on oldies radio daily and have become part of the fabric of pop culture.
Herman’s Hermits records were made under the production and guidance of star producer Mickie Most, who also produced hits by Donovan and Jeff Beck plus songs like The Animals’ “House of the Rising Sun” and The Nashville Teens’ “Tobacco Road,” among others. Most and Noone began using session musicians – including a pre-Led Zeppelin John Paul Jones and Jimmy Page – for records, to the frustration of the rest of the band. With members gradually growing apart, the group eventually broke up.
Noone has toured and made appearances over the decades, occasionally as an actor. In recent years, he has hosted shows on satellite radio, including Something Good on SiriusXM's ‘60s Gold channel, where he tells stories about the bands and songs with his unique sensibility and good-natured English charm
This tour, titled “An Olde English Christmas with Herman’s Hermits starring Peter Noone,” features Christmas songs and flair alongside all the classics and hits Noone is known for. It’s sure to be a good way to spend an evening during the holiday season for lovers of classic pop or a fine gift for any oldies appreciator in your life.
Peter Noone will play Ludlow Garage at 8:30 p.m. Dec. 16. Doors open at 7 p.m. There are no known COVID-19 protocols. Info: ludlowgaragecincinnati.com.
