Marmalade to appear at The Brook in Soham

PROBABLY best remembered for their recording of Ob-la- di, ob- la-da back in the 1960s, the Scottish band Marmalade have continued to delight audiences around the world, and on Saturday the group will be playing at The Brook in Soham.

Often called Scotland’s answer to the Beatles, Marmalade topped the UK charts first with their Lennon/MCartney cover of Ob-la-di and then in the 1970s they knocked Rolf Harris’ Two Little Boys off the number one slot, with their timeless Reflections of My Life.

Before moving to London and changing their name to Marmalade, the Glasgow based quintet was formerly known as Dean Ford and the Gaylords, and had enjoyed unparalleled success between 1961 and 1967 in their native Scotland.

Success in the UK charts kicked off in May 1968 with Loving Things which was swiftly followed by Wait for me Marianne and Baby Make It Soon. With their unique vocal harmonies and dynamic live performances they have delighted audiences and the record buying public from the mid sixties through to the new millennium.
