The Original Amazing Darts - 9pm

It is with enormous pleasure we welcome back Darts to the Fleur, celebrating their 40th Anniversary. They had such a great time last year they thought it would be nice to return and do it again, we obviously agreed!
Founded in 1976, the group was the brain child of Den Hegarty along with Griff Fender, Rita Ray and Horatio Hornblower, all former members of the band Rocky Sharpe and the Razors. Joining the band were Thump Thompson, George Currie and John Dummer. The line-up was completed by Hammy Howel and ex Mickey Jupp singer Bob Fish. They built a large following playing numerous venues, their big break coming after they appeared on Charlie Gillet's show on BBC Radio London in October 1976. This secured a recording contract with Magnet Records, where they teamed up with record producer Tommy Boyce who had previously worked with The Monkees.
Covering 1950's rock and roll hits they scored their first UK hit in November 1977 with a mashup of Daddy Cool and Little Richard's 1957 hit 'The Girl Can't Help It'. More cover versions followed with 'Come Back My Love' and 'The Boy From New York City'. Their next single was an orignal song "It's Raining" written by band member Griff Fender. All three singles reached no 2 in the UK Charts and sold a combined 1.25 million copies.
Enjoy hits like Daddy Cool / The Girl Can't Help It, Come Back My Love, The Boy From New York City, It's Raining, Don't Let It Fade Away, Get It, Duke of Earl, Can't Get Enough of Your Love, Reet Petite, Lets Hang On, Peaches and other truely memorable, timeless songs.

SUNDAY 24th JULY

Hope & Glory @ FleurFest The Jar Family @ FleurFest

The Jar Family - 2pm

The Jar Family are five individual songwriters and musicians from Hartlepool taking their name from the donations jar they passed around at early gigs.
The band is a tight knit group who had the foresight to realise that they were stronger collectively than they were individually. Styled 'Industrial Folk' these musicians from the North East are simply stunning with very different, charismatic personalities and a wide range of musical styles.
They work together harmoniously, sharing lead vocals and their clever, highly musical self-penned songs immediately stay in your mind. Echoes of the Beatles and Oasis with originality, edge, grit and truth.
You might just recognise the excellent Keith Wilkinson, bassist for the band Squeeze between 1985 and 1996 and later Jools Holland.

Hope & Glory Ska - 4pm

Hope & Glory Ska are a seven piece band recreating the 'Heavy Heavy Monster Sound' of Madness and the best Classic Ska and 2 Tone music featuring hits from Bad Manners, The Specials, The Beat Selector and many more.
