60s Events Band The Raiders
Lisberg sent a return plane ticket to Mickie Most so that he could come up from London to see the band play in Bolton. Most became the group’s record producer, controlling all band’s output.
He emphasised a simple, non-threatening, clean-cut image, although this band originally played R&B numbers. This helped Herman’s Hermits become hugely successful in the mid-1960s. (Wikipedia).
In common with Beatles, they came from Liverpool, were managed by Brian Epstein and were recorded by George Martin.
They are most remembered for being first act to reach number one in UK Singles Chart with their first three single releases: “How Do You Do It?”, “I Like It” and “You’ll Never Walk Alone”. (Wikipedia)
