The Delltones, Twin Towns, Friday

It only seems like yesterday but more than 50 years on The Delltones are still enchanting and energising audiences with their highly exciting and colourful performances.

The Delltones with their rich harmonies, featuring the unique voice of Peewee Wilson, still captivate audiences blending their own hits Gee, You’re The Limit, Get A Little Dirt On Your Hands, Come A Little Bit Closer, Hangin’ Five with classic DooWop and Pop.

Audiences still scream, audiences still shout, audiences still go away singing the songs, dancing the steps, chanting the goofy chants and looking forward to coming back for another dose as soon as they can.

The Delltones: the band that makes you feel good long after the show is over. If you only go out once this year, don’t miss the Delltones live – they’re better than ever!

See the lads on Friday at Twin Towns.
