Con and Dec are the original voices of the 1960’s supergroup who’s list of hit records and dynamic, fast–moving stage show confirms the remarkable popularity of this exceptionally popular Irish act who are regularly copied and imitated but never matched.
During the swinging 1960’s, The Bachelors had many successful songs in music charts throughout the world. Some of the most successful were Charmaine, Diane, I Believe, Ramona, I Wouldn’t Trade You for the World, Marie (written by Irving Berlin) and In The Chapel in the Moonlight. In 1965 they had the “most played juke box track” with The Stars Will Remember. Their last big hit in the UK was a cover of the Paul Simon song, The Sound of Silence which reached No. 3 in April, 1966. Throughout the 1960’s, The Bachelors racked up hit singles and albums, made guest appearances on all the then-current TV shows and appeared in two Royal Variety TV shows. In 1963, they starred in It’s All Over Town with Frankie Vaughan and The Springfields and the following year they appeared on the TV show Sunday Night at the London Palladium, then hosted by Bruce Forsyth – the episode achieving the largest viewing audience ever for this very popular show.
