Rock n Roll & Jive Bands in Birmingham

Birmingham has contributed heavily to the music scene over the years, having spawned some fantastic world-class acts. But not many have scaled the heights which Jeff Lynne did with the Electric Light Orchestra.

Jeff Lynne was born in 1947 (just — his birthday is 30th December!) in Shard End, Birmingham. He went on to form ELO and also performed with the Traveling Wilburys, who he co-founded with George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison and Tom Petty. He’s also a very decorated music producer, named the fourth-greatest producer in history by The Washington Times.

Lynne attended Alderlea Boys’ Secondary School and showed an early talent for music, buying his first guitar for £2, which he still plays to this day. He formed a band at the age of 15, gigging around the local area before joining Roy Wood in The Move in 1970 before Wood and Lynne remoulded the group as ELO, blending orchestral feels with the beats of rock and roll and jive music.

ELO went on to become one of the biggest bands of all time, and are still incredibly popular to this day. Although they might prove rather expensive to hire for a party, we have a number of supremely talented acts who are available at much more reasonable prices. Give us a call today on 01572 756386 to find out more.
