It's Tony again! I'm based in Northolt in Middlesex (not far from Wembley), but I would be prepared to travel.
Any Southern-based concerts would be a possibility for me. Any details would be gratefully received, and I look forward to hearing further.
I think the Fourmost are a legendary name, and the current line-up are carrying the legend to a high level indeed, carrying on the legacy of Brian, Mike, Billy and Dave. Please also remember me to the great Bill Haisman! Cheers, Tony.
We have many gigs down South and in other parts of the UK throughout the year, what is your location?
Great set at Whitby on Friday, you blew the Stones and Mike Pender off the stage with your very lively and varied repertoire. Out of all the bands and acts that appeared at Whitby both the Fourmost and Union Gap were a cut above the rest.
Looking forward to seeing the band again at Blackpool in November
Just a quick note to ask if The Fourmost have any gigs in the south in the foreseeable future? It would be great to see such a legendary Liverpool band in this neck of the woods!
And please ask Kevin if he can arrange to include "Baby I Need Your Loving" at some point! The bands' 1964 version with the late, great, Mike Millward on lead vocals always eclipsed The Four Tops version for me!
Look forward to hearing from you, and don't forget.........keep on rockin' !!
Joan, Sylvia, Al and Dave from Lincoln
Just to say we enjoyed the Whitby festival. We listened to all the sixties bands. We had not seen the Fourmost line-up before but just to say that we thought that you were the most entertaining band of the weekend.
PS hope to see you soon
Hi, have just been to see the fourmost on the ford club in Cronton...they were awsome I would defo go again to see them does anyone know where they are next on
Thanks for a great afternoon's entertainment at the Oddfellows Club, to date you have been the best 60's act we have had. Authentic in every way and the ability to involve your audience in to your show. Enjoyed our chat prior to you going on stage, don't forget to mention us both to Billy and Tony from the Merseybeats.
Don't tell them, but we think you cover their version of I think of You better than they do. We do hope to see you back here again.
Love Sue & Joan xx
Not spoken to Billy since before Christmas, but, I assume he is doing ok.
The Fourmost have booked to go in to the studio at the back end of February to cut a 10/12 track album consisting of there chart hits plus various other songs.
There is also the added bonus of the Merseybeats Co.founder Billy Kinsley producing it for us after a conversation the other night whilst both bands were on the same bill down at Butlins, Minehead.
Watch this space on that one............Once the CD has been mastered and is ready for the general public we will look at other possiblities of merchandise etc.
Thanks for keeping in touch Tony,
All the best from the Fourmost
Any news of the legend that is Billy? And is there an update regarding some possible merchandise in the future please? How cool would a Fourmost t-shirt be?
Look forward to hearing from you, and keep on rockin'........
Not seen the fourmost for over 20 years - but you did not let us down. Saw you at Folkestone along with the Fortunes and the Dreamers - I only have one word to say FAB!!!
PS I thought 'Chains' was fabulous
Cant wait to see you again
All the best
Irene and Dave
Got to say guys, you blew both the Dreamers and Fortunes off the stage on Friday night in Folkstone with your dynamic and charismatic show; both the other bands were good but couldn't compete with the Fourmost.
I and the rest of the group all agreed that the Fourmost was the highlight of our weekend. Let's hope you're at folkstone again next year.
Love from Sue and the gang xxx
Thanks for a great night at Seacroft last Saturday, it was good to have a good chat with Kevin before the show, many of us have put on the feedback forms that we want the Fourmost back at Seacroft asap. I live in the Midlands at Swadlincote if you are ever playing in the Midlands let me know and we will come and see you great band thanks who needs the bloody Piggies pleased you replaced them.
Saw you on Friday night at the Savoy Hotel 60s weekend in Blackpool, for my money you were the best band of the weekend by a country mile. Great sound, smart and very PRO!!!
Will be watching you again next year at Whitby, lets hope the rest of the bands take a leaf out of your book.
Alex was in fact talking to Bill only last Saturday whilst enroute to Castle Douglas to play a private party. Bill is scheduled to go in to hospital to have an operation on a persistant ankle problem that he has endured for many years. Bill is set to be sidelined for 6 months at least.
In regards to Billy Hatton & Dave Lovelady, we haven't had any contact from either of them for a number of years. Would be nice to hear from them and possibly get them up at future shows.
Could you tell me how Bill is getting on, and is there any chance of guest appearances with lads in the future? Also, do any of you ever keep contact with the surviving members of the original line-up, Billy Hatton or Dave Lovelady?
Hiawatha says hello to Bill
We're embarking on recording a live CD and taking the best songs from several shows to make a compilation. We have nothing in the pipeline at the moment to sell merchandise, however, this could change at any time. So don't be surprised to see merchandise being offered on the website.
Hi again lads,
About four years ago, I was able to obtain a video and key ring from the Fourmost's website, and was wondering if there was any plan to introduce the possibility of any future merchandise? A t-shirt bearing the Fourmost's name would be great!!
Any chance this could happen? There are a lot of fans out here you know!!
Keep on rockin' as only the Fourmost can!
The Fourmost 2012.7.9 16:42
Like any other band on the rd line-up's change, some for the better and some for the worse. We personally think the Fourmost is going from strength to strength, a completley revamped set list bringing back I'm In Love and Here There And Everywhere as well as other classic 60's songs. Colin is originally from Liverpool but moved away at an early age due to his father's military back ground.
Hi, although we always think of The Fourmost as a Liverpool band, are any of the current line-up actually from Merseyside?
Good luck to the boys, keep on rockin', and best regards to Billy the Legend!
Just to say that I thought you were fab at the Pickering festival.
First time we have been - the weather was aweful but you were great. We are now true fourmost fans - cant wait to see you at Whitby
PS what a fantastic vocalist the drummer is, just a pity we cant see more of him
Kate and Joe xxx
Well done Lee, and the other members of the band, one of the best performances i have seen at Pickering, i think the only other one that comes close was The Swinging Blue Jeans a couple of years ago, thanks lads.
Hey Up kevin,Thanks for putting on a great show for us at the Pickering 60s festival under great pressure from the weather and the sound system but you lads were true pro's,great sound,great lads great performance.Was nice talking to you all and will see you agin at Whtby in september,Cheers Lads,Keep it Live,Wally.
Went to the festival at Workington over the weekend.
The Fourmost looked and sounded as good as ever.
Cant wait for Carlisle this weekend
Spent a weekend at Newton Hall. First time I have seen the fourmost you were absolutely fantastic, We are now avid sixties fans and cant wait to see you again .
Jan and Mark
what ever become of Gary the sound engineer , he was the guy who put the fourmost back on the map and sounding as good as they were . I have been told he later went on to work with another liverpool band called the undertakers. Missed him at the 60s fez,s in butlins, alot of the 60,s bands wanted Gary to do the sound mix for them , the easybeats, the casuals, and the dekotas to name but a few. Kind regards
Glad you enjoyed the show, we're sad to say that Billy has retired from all the touring up and down the country due to having a young daughter that he has to look after. However, I'm sure Bill will make guest appearances as when commitments allow.
Since the line-up change we have now included I'm In Love, Baby I need Your Lovin and Hear There and Everywhere will also be coming back in to the set once they have been fine tuned. The lads ran out of time at Skegness as the last number should have been a Little Lovin, trust me, they still play it!!! :-)
The lads will be including it in their set tonight at the 60's festival in Blackpool.
Kevin is a big fan of the Searchers, did you notice? If you let him have his own way that's all they would play, on a serious note, the set list does get changed quite frequently now from gig to gig. So next time you see them you will probably hear songs you haven't heard them play before.
Hope to see you at the next one down at Bognor later this month.
Hi lads, just back today from the Festival of the 60's at Skegness, where I was really looking forward to seeing The Fourmost on the Saturday night. Imagine my disappointment when the curtains opened, and Bill was not in the line up, with Kevin later saying Bill had "retired, but may make a guest appearance occasionally". Can you tell me if this is true please? Berny was also conspicuous by his absence. Though I enjoyed the show, (Kevin's son Lee was certainly talented), I couldn't understand why several Searchers covers were part of the boys' repertoire, yet they chose to omit their own biggest hit "A Little Loving" from the set. I would be grateful for your comments regrding my points, as an avid Fourmost fan since 1963. Best wishes, Tony (Northolt, Middlesex)
Billy - Cast your mind back to the early 70's when you appeared at the 'Cat's Whiskers' Mecca ballroom, York. Resident band was 'Carnival'. I was there that night as my cousin's husband was the drummer to Carnival. He, Dave, his brother in law Pete and myself met you the morning after to play a game of snooker at a local hall. We had a good chat and several beers! Don't suppose for one minute you remember, but good to see you are still going albeit looking a little older!
Great show at Butlins Minehead, I am making enquiries about booking you for a 60s night on behalf of the Royal British Legion at Whitchurch Bristol, I do hope you would be able to do it?
spoke to you at Alverston Hall at Christmas. Thought the band looked and sounded fabulous. Thanks for a wonderful night
Dorothy and Steve
Thanks for making our Christmas at Alvaston Hall, our group thought you were brilliant, didn't stop talking about you for the rest of our NY's weekend. Meet The Beatles were also very good.
Will keep an eye on your gig list for future performances.
All the best for 2012,
Was good to catch up with you and the lads last night in Blackpool, although I missed your set I was told you were excellent, had the place bouncing. As i said after the show, come down to the house in the newyear and we'll have a proper catch up.
All the best for xmas and newyear,
Fantastic show lads at Grassmore WMC, best act we have had here. That is saying something considering we have had Dave Berry and Union Gap. I hear on the grapevine that you may be back next yea at some point? I'll be the first in the que for a ticket. Once again, excellent show.
What a brilliant show. You were great.. Me and my girl friend thoroughtly enjoyed the evening. Love to you all, especially Alec. Hope to see you again very soon, maybe Butlins At Bognor Regis xx
Hi guys, Any update on the Edinburgh gig? Will you be coming to Scotland later on in the year?
Regards to yourself and the lads for a wonderful show for my annual bash over here in Jersey, everybody has commented on how good you were and would like to see you perform again over here on the island. Maybe next year I will sort something out for you to come over for another memory lane tour.
Great weekend at Warners Holiday Village, Somerset, watched the Fourmost on the Saturday night. What an excellent band, even more so under the circumstances, apparantly they were missing the bands bass player & lead vocalist. They had some able deputies and if the band hadn't of said anything you wouldn't have known. Lookng forward to seeing them again.
We were supposed to be playing up in Edinburgh in October of this year but due to commitments playing on the Merseybeats 50th Anniversary tour that date will now be re-scheduled for a later date.
Hi guys, Hope you are all well, any dates for Scotland or northern England this year? xxxx
Till You Say You'll Be Mine - very good!
Looking forward to catching the Fourmost in Majorca later in the year whilst on our annual holiday, your second show falls nicely in to our schedule. Bring back the happy memories for us.
See you guys soon, Keith
First class show down in Weymouth last month, my husband & I think you're streets ahead of a lot of the other 60's bands that play down here at the Haven camp. We'll hopefully see you again in the future.
like new site...Hope you are all ok, maybe see you this year, Love Moxx
Just thanking you for a great night on Saturday at Fox Lane Club, Mary & I really enjoyed the Fourmost and the first band Replay. Keep in touch regarding those other dates you mentioned.
To the band,
Thought you put on a great show at Dave's bash down here in sunny Sheffield, first time I have seen you guys in the flesh. I thought your lead guitarist was top draw, he certainly doesn't look 68.
Hope to see you again.
Looking forward to the arrival of the fourmost in my home country of germany at the back end of 2011, bring back happy memories.
Thanks so much for a great evening at Nantwich Civic Cenre for the Christie Hospital Charity evening. Fantastic music - took me back to my younger days - I am a tad older than Billy - and thoroughly enjoyed being transported back!
You are as good if not better than you ever were.
We have just got back from Hayling Island where we saw the band on saturday night.
We havent seen you for four years and were delighted to see the old line up back together. Much better. The music was brilliant and the banter was hilarious!
All day Sunday everyone was raving about how good you were.
Looking forward to Skegness in December.
Regards Colin and Tina from Guildford.
had agreat night at butlins bognor.been ages since i last saw the band.they were great.more mature but great danced the night away.they sang spirit in the sky and the place was jumping great night.!!!!!! ...........!!!!never get tiered of hearing hello little girl.great night. thanks fourmost......
Hi was just wondering, many years ago (in the sixties) I use to attend sunday school at the sailors chapel bottom of wellington road in the dingle. One sunday we where on our way to church when I think it was yourselves making a film in wellington road. If it was, what was the film made for?. Was it a film for yourselves or somethink to do with Frankie Vaughan.
We will be appearing live on Centre Stage tomorrow night from 9.30pm at Butlins, Bognor Regis - 06-11-10
Hope to see you all their........
We have now been pulled out of Richmond due to unforseen circumstances. Hope to see you at another festival in the not so distant future.
I will definately be there Cant wait to see you been nearly 14 years so plenty of changes for us all !
See you Sunday x
We're penciled in for an afternoon slot at Richmond on Sunday, playing alongside Edison Lighthouse on the Saturday night down in Bristol.
Hope to see you Sunday,
The Fourmost :)
Hi Lads sorry didnt know you were in skegness thursday . I thought you were going to the monster bash next weekend . If you are when are
you on ?
we have the fourmost appearing at the parkway sports and social club in peterborough on fri 3rd dec 10 bring it on!!
Saw you last Friday in Gt Yarmouth along with Mike Penders Searchers, I thought by far you were the best band of the night. Mike Pender was good and has still got the voice that sold a million records, but he had one hard act to follow in the Fourmost.
We're appearing in Skegness this coming Thursday, 21/10/10.
Hope to see you their,
Hi Lads can you please tell me which day youre at skegness so i dont miss you
just wanted to say it was lovely to work with you on saturday at the whitby 60's fest , perfect gentlemen and a first class band !! hope to work with you again someday . take care love nancy ' Little Miss 60's '
Been nearly 4yrs since I last saw you perform, have to say that this current line-up is by far the best to date. Good stage presence, excellent harmonies and looking very smart too. Hope to see you at the up & coming 60's festival at Richmond next month.
Love Rhonda xx
Sorry it was just a quick hello on Saturday but grea to catch upwith you all again...Billy you never change...(please dont).....much love to Alex, kevin and bernie (notforgetting \billy) hope to see you soon, Moxxxxx
Keep your dates free for Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th March 2011 folks, we will be on the bill along with the Ivy League and Union Gap for a solid 60's weekend at the Savoy Hotel, Blackpool. Saturday nights entertainment will see the fabulous Merseybeat Legends, a favourite band of ours that we have worked with many times, the Kasuals and topping the bill is the Swinging Blue Jeans.
Thirty-Two thousand hits on the Fourmost website and the last guestbook message was six weeks ago! Come on people, show your appreciation for this legendary Liverpool band led so brilliantly for over thirty years by the great Bill Haisman. I've had the pleasure of seeing the band in action several times, and I hope there'll be many more. Keep on rockin' lads.
Hi Lads, Got a special birthday coming up this summer! Where will you be? Any dates particularly for Scotland, Berwick or North England? Rona and Marilyn xxxx
saw the band at Skegness last week. We thought you were fabulous. Plenty of humour and of course good music
Keep sixties rockin
Dave and Sue
Really good to catch up with you all last week at Skegness, Suy and I had a great laugh....Billy you are a terror but love you loads...Alex...mmmm still the hottie in the band!! Sue says Hi to bernie, she enjoyed the chat and kevin your grandaughter is a beauty.
Will see you in July at the banbury bash, looking forward to it, love to you all Moxxx
We were at Craig Tara. Agree with the comments about the rowdy audience, but the proffesionalism of the band won the crowd over - absolutely first class entertainment and we hope to see you soon
hopefull in Whitby
Hello to the Fourmost
Seen you at Craig Tara last Friday and you sounded great. Unfortunately the noise of an audience who had absolutely no manners spoiled what was going to be a great night. We left a half time having watched you try to get the attention on an ignorant crowd. I feel sympathy for the group for you what you had to endure. I look forward to seeing the group again under more orderly conditions. Thanks again Fourmost - you were and still are a fine band.
I had the opportunity last nigth to see The Four Most at Cricket St. Thomas. We had a fabulous night - found the band very professional which of course we would expect from a well established band!. The highlight of the night for me was 'Just One Look '(because I am a big Hollies fan). Once again thank you for a great night
Joan and Lawrence xxxx
We will be appearing at, Craig Tar, Ayr, on Friday 21st May.
Hope to see you there,
Hi guys, Will you be coming to Bonnie Scotland this year? Rona & Marilyn xx
hi guys great to see you and chat, thanks for a great nite. Ann xx
Saw you at bognor this weekend superb as usual a great gig i work for hospital radio plymouth and took a lot of photographs of you there,if you would like them please contact me.
Shameyou are not at Richmond next week, missed you by one night at Butlins ....Will see you at the Banbury bash in July..Love to all, Moxx
Hi, you guys were great at butlins skegness. It was nice talking to you billy, Wished we could get the butlins in ayr days back.
see you when you play up in Edinburgh.
Kathy and Lorraine xx
Saw you guys at Sandbay on Friday evening, excellent performance. Pity a you had some technical difficulties at the start, didn't dampen anyone's spirits, you had us all dancing from start to finish. Hope to see you all again a sixties weekend soon.
Love Rhonda xx
Hi Lads, had the pleasure of seeing you all at Skegness last weekend. Great show, thought Bill was so funny, and how relaxed does he come across? Just a small observation. I was a bit disappointed that "A Little Loving" was the only Fourmost hit performed, with rest of the set made up of other bands' covers. "Hello Little Girl", "I'm in Love", and "Baby I Need Your Loving" are as good a sixties record as you're gonna get, so come on Bill, throw some more Fourmost hits in the mix!! We want to hear your songs too you know!! Great show though lads, and just "keep on Rockin" !!
happy biirthday to u on th l9th just gone hope u had great day love shirley xxxx

I can confirm that the Fourmost will be appearing at Butlins, Skegness, on the weekend of your birthday celebrations.
See you their,
Hi, many thanks for your swift response! Sadly, won't be able to make Skegness in December, but have booked for the weekend of 5-8 March 2010 for a "special" birthday. Would you happen to know whether The Fourmost will be returning that weekend?
The Fourmost will be performing live on centre stage at Butlins, Skegness, on the 11th December 2009 along with some other great acts from that era. The CD & DVD has been put on hold until the newyear due to work comittments that the band has. Once this project has been completed it will be available to buy through the Fourmosts Official Website.
Hi Bill, Kevin, Bernie and Alec, any prospect of an update on the gig guide please?
I really want to see you all again, and hope you can point me in the right direction. Also any details on a new cd/merchandise etc would be gratefully received! I've been a Fourmost fan since '63, and think you're as brilliant as ever!
Cheers lads, and keep on rockin'!!
HI GUYS, GREAT TO SEE YOU ALL BACK TOGETHER AT BOGNOR AND WOWING THE AUDIENCE. ITS NICE TO SEE A BAND WHO GEL AS MUCH AS YOU DO .YOU ARE OBVIOUSLY HAVING A BALL AND THAT COMMUNICATES TO THE AUDIENCE.
IF YOU COULD HAVE HEARD THE COMMENTS AFTER YOU PLAYED YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN THRILLED. EVEN THE YOUNGSTERS WERE IMPRESSED.BACK TO THE OLD MAGIC.
AND ALEC YOU'VE STILL GOT THAT "IT" FACTOR.
FROM THE TWO BLONDES SEE YOU AT SKEGNESS HOPEFULLY, WHEN THE REST OF THE GANG WILL BE THERE.
LOOPY LIN AND VAL
Thankyou for a wonderful evening at brean sands leisure park, you made our night. hope to see you again.
Pete & Barbara, Taunton.

mr 60s karl
i wish l could b there have to b content in watching your vidio on u tube i bet mo will b there x
A welcome return to Alec, and it's sad for Lee to be leaving. He had a voice to die for, and his live version of Here There and Everywhere from The Beatles' Revolver album was a massive highlight of Lee's relatively brief stay with the band. Now into the next phase for Bill and the boys. Keep on Rockin' lads!!
Brilliant night at Whitby Pavillion for the 60's weekend. Had a fantastic weekend all round, saw some good bands, the fourmost were excellent, as always. Mike Penders Searchers were live on the saturday evening, also excellent, still got the sound. Looking forward to 2010.
The Fourmost will be appearing live @ Butlins, Skegness, on Thursday 22nd October 2009.
Hope to see you all their!
Fantastic show at the Black Friers Theatre on Saturday evening, we thought you were a lot more entertaining than the headlining act, The Searchers!
That is some guitarist you have, excellent slide player.
We hope to see you again very soon.
All the best,
Bill & Sue Holden, Boston
Hey guys, will you be at any butlins weekends this year?
If not, what other dates have you got?
