About the event

The band can trace its origins back to the mid sixties when some schoolboys got together to form a South-East Essex based band called BURNING DESIRE.  The line up included singer / guitarist Ken Christie, bassist Don Hydes and drummer Roger Adley.  Later members included guitarists John Elsey and Roger’s brother Wayne Adley although by this time Roger had left the band and moved away.  The band finally split in the early seventies and the various members went their separate ways.

In the mid eighties Ken was asked to put a band together for a charity event to be held on Foulness Island.  The band consisted of the above line up and THE OLD MAN REVIVAL BAND was born.  Around this time, Ken was referred to as The Old Man and this is how the band originally got it’s name.  The name was later shortened to THE REVIVAL BAND.
