Since then, they have gone on to become one of the most musically and visually accurate Kinks
tribute acts in the country.
Following all the laughter and tears that come from watching The Kinks
' ups and downs, the audience is treated to a stunning performance of some Kinks
favourites, which has all ages dancing.
The songs that don't fit into the narrative are performed as The Kinks
doing pop songs at a gig.
John Dalton, who joined the original Kinks
in 1969 and left in 1976, founded the Kast Off Kinks
in 1994, to keep the music playing, with Mick Avory, John Gosling and Dave Clark.
En cualquier caso la historia es tan buena que el flamante musical londinense Sunny afternoon se limita a contar el desaforado relato de los volatiles y cainabelescos hermanos Raymond Douglas Davies y David Russell Gordon Davies (Ray & Dave se aman y se odian) junto a Mick Avory y Peter Quaife y sus idas y vueltas, peleas y reconciliaciones, luces y sombras al frente de The Kinks
Ray - plugging his new book Americana: The Kinks
, the Riff, the Road: The Story at Hay Festival in Powys - also told of being shot in New Orleans ten years ago.
Davies notes that the years spent away from the whirlwind of tours and "American Bandstand" appearances in the 1960s helped to steer him toward the knottier musical tributaries that the Kinks
would navigate throughout the late '60s and beyond.
In the book Davies links the chapters with old and new lyrics as he takes the reader on a road trip through his American experiences and describes how the US influenced his life and music, from watching American films as a child, to touring there with The Kinks
, said to be one of the most successful and influential bands of the 1960s and 1970s.
The most striking of the album's tracks is a hybrid of 'Days' and 'This Time Tomorrow', a much lesser known Kinks
track, which sees Davies perform with Mumford & Sons.
Ray teamed up with BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, JACKSON BROWN, MUMFORD & SONS, JON BON JOVI and LUCINDA WILLIAMS to give a new twist to old Kinks
songs, such as You Really Got Me, Dead End Street and Waterloo Sunset.
