We just had the pleasure of hearing the Dakotas on the Sensational 60s tour, who don't come South often enough, but are still one of our all time favourite groups. They treated us to some great music and their front man Ronnie Ravey really impressed us with his story telling and his superb rendition of some of their hit songs.

I just got back from Butlins at Skegness 60s weekend & have saw many bands.
 Many were either not trying or have lost their edge.

The Dakotas were on Sunday evening - these guys stole the show! They did all the hits from Billy j Kramer era & many more. Their sound was excellent and their timing brill!

Had a brilliant night at the Floral Hall, thought the Dakotas were great and liked the way the singer Ronnie really engaged with the audience, real showman!!

Just got back home and still got music playing in my head :-) What a wonderful atmosphere all over the Celebrity Eclipse. Particularly loved The Troggs, The Fourmost and the great Dakotas! - brilliant band and powerful frontman Ronnie Ravey. Danced my feet off ! Thanks to you guys for making our day very special. Jean and I were really over the moon.

Had a great night in Peterborough watching the 60's show - Sounds Force 5, The Fortunes, The Dakotas & The Move. Excellent performances from all bands but The Dakotas stole it for me. Should have been star billing. Outstanding! Can't wait to see you boys again.
