The Bee Gees at the Marine Hall tomorrow?

Not quite but it’s the next best thing to Saturday Night Fever - as even the Bee Gees agreed when the ultimate tribute act sang a duet with the super group in 1995, not long after the real thing won a rapturous reception in the resort for the Switch-On (pictured).

Jive Talkin’ - The Bee Gees Concert - unites some of the UK’s hottest tribute talents to explore the A to Z of the Bee Gees.

It looks like raising roof on the Marine Hall on Saturday.

Featuring the convincing vocals of brothers Darren and Gary Simmons as Maurice and Barry Gibb, as well as Darren’s son Jack Simmons as Robin Gibb, these three leading men collectively have career highs including starring in London’s West End, numerous world wide TV appearances and performing live with the Bee Gees themselves.

The Jive Talkin’ band features some great performers and recreates the incredibly extensive Gibb Brother’s repertoire.

The show also features an acoustic medley of some of the Bee Gees earlier hits - particularly poignant - showcasing the voices of the three lead singers creating an emotional musical journey.

Gary and Darren have been performing their show since appearing on ITV’s Stars in their Eyes in 1990 winning rare praise from hard nosed newsman Piers Morgan.
