Amen Corner was one of the biggest influences on the sixties pop scene to ever come out of Wales. With their own brand of West Coast (Wales) Music, a mixture of mod, psychedelic power pop, heavy horns, swirling Hammond organ, the distinctive voice of Andy Fairweather-Low and their power house live show made them one of the most exciting bands around at the time.
With million seller hits like "Gin House", "Bend Me Shape Me", "If Paradise was half as Nice", "High in the Sky", & "Hello Suzie" they soon became a household name in the late sixties. But unfortunately due to the bands premature demise at the end of 69 the legacy of this truly great band has become some what forgotten. However due to a long standing friendship between sax man Frogman Curtis and Alan Jones, (original founder member) the idea to form a official New Amen Corner to keep the memory and music alive of this legendary band was born.
The musicians of the New Amen Corner have a musical pedigree second to none with most of the band having gigged around in the 60's and have been band members with the likes of Screaming Lord Sutch, Roger Daltrey, Alice Cooper, Hayley Westenra, The Symbols, Jeff Beck, Alexsis Korner, Roy Wood, Robert Plant, Alvin Stardust, Ruby Turner, Mike Oldfield & Jaki Graham to name but a few!!!!! Currently the band work with Steve Ellis of Love Affair, Cliff Bennett And The Rebel Rousers, Chip Hawkes of the Tremeloes and Mike D'arbo of Manferd Mann.
The New Amen Corner have emerged in the last couple of years as arguably the hottest band on the 60’s circuit because of their ability to recreate so perfectly the sound and atmosphere of that era. Their Live power house show has made them one of the most exciting bands around, period clothing, authentic equipment and with the band encouraging their fans to don 60’s attire, their shows really breath life back, into what must be music’s most prolific decade.
They are Ideal for Summer Ball’s, Picnic Concerts, Festivals & Outdoor Events, Corporate & private functions.
