The age of Make Love Not War, flower power, beautiful people, long hair, drainpipes and bell bottomed trousers, guru shirts,the bikini, miniskirts, dances such as the twist and mashed potato , and above all music that changed the world! Songs of protest, songs of hope, songs of love, songs of freedom, all reflecting a new generation and a decade quite unlike it.
The Vietnam War, Woodstock, Man Landing On The Moon may have all been forgotten by baby boomers or not even heard of today, but The Beatles , Elvis Presley, Simon and Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones, Pete Seeger and a host of others have left a lasting impression in the world of music for time to come. Here are songs where the lyrics are simple and easy to comprehend and it is to these great singers and their hits that The Stop-Gaps Choral Ensemble pays tribute in a concert of reworked harmony.
Add to this nostalgia a bit of Hollywood, Bollywood and Broadway at the time, performed in the inimitable Stop-Gaps style and we have an eclectic musical evening that comes around only once in a while.
