The History of The Band

At the start of the new millennium Alan Williams reunited with John Richardson and Mick Clarke to once more go on tour. All three were members of the original band that found fame in the seventies when their first record release ‘Sugar Baby Love’ shot to number one in the U.K. charts paving the way for a career that has spanned the decades. ‘Sugar Baby Love’ repeated it’s success in virtually every country in the world so establishing the Rubettes as icons of 70’s Glam Rock. They went on producing hit after hit throughout the seventies, 15 in all and with 8 albums have sold over 30 million records to date.

Since their formation in 2000 with new member Mark Haley on keyboards and guitar they have continuously toured like never before enjoying every moment which is patently obvious and appreciated by all who have viewed them on TV or attended their many live performances throughout Europe and beyond.

At the beginning of 2015 keyboardist Mark moved on and has since been replaced by Steve Etherington. The legend continues with major tours being undertaken both this year and next and no end in sight such is the bands continued popularity with all things nostalgically seventies.

With a virtually all original line up the authentic sound and performance of the Rubettes hits cannot be bettered. The classic Gatzby image of white suits and legendary caps remain as famous now as they were when the band first appeared on Top of the Pops in 1974. True to the image and sound both remain to this day as vibrant and thrilling as ever.
