Mitch Ryder Live @ Prestatyn Weekender

Recommended Posts

I did not go to Prestatyn but my hubby did and he has just called me to tell me how good

'His Hero'  Mitch Ryder was.   He says he was note perfect and seeing him live was something he wouldn't have missed for the world.   In his words  'Mitch' you did us proud you were absolutely brilliant'.    :thumbsup:

 

From Karen on behalf of Steve. xx

I know Mitch Ryder is legendary on the northern scene due to his dance floor fillers

like Breakout and You Get Your Kicks, but I often think that these records plus I'd rather Go To Jail

are actually some of the first Punk records ever made. Long before Punk was even thought of.

I wouldn't say note perfect but great effort and nice to pay respect. Got a video on my phone of You Get Your Kicks from last night but not sure of protocol regarding posting on here from a live event?

I would like to see that if possible? I know Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels performed 'Breakout' on American Bandstand May 1966 but as of yet haven't been able to track it down, does anyone know if it even exists still? Thank you x

An historical and iconic moment for the 'northern' scene.

I'm made up that I went, wouldn't have missed it

I have a video on my phone, will try to upload. Let's not forget, this guy has never (according to himself) sung You get your kicks live infront of an audience before. For 70 yrs old, he was quite superb!

Video won't upload from my phone, presume file too big, will have a look when back at PC but I presume it will be on YouTube by now?

Mitch Ryder - blew all my misgivings away as I wasn't sure what to expect when announced last year. A consummate professional and a class act on stage. Very privileged to have witnessed a great performance. I spent a couple of hours in the main hall photographing the sound check in the morning and he made sure Snake Davis and the Suspicions knew exactly what he did and didn't want on the night.

Mitch said that was the first time he had performed You get your kicks and breakout live.  Both were perfectly delivered, what a professional. My only point of concern was in the cafe after Saturdays performance; Mitch, his wife and spellbinders/Invitations were sat signing autographs with a jug os water for refreshment. Surely the artists should have been provided with a bottle of bourbon or other apperitife fitting their status.
