In June 1960 Hank B Marvin, Bruce Welch, Jet Harris and Tony Meehan recorded Apache. This became the monster hit that launched The Shadows instrumental career and founded a nation of bespectacled guitarists dreaming of acquiring their very own red Fender Stratocaster and stepping out into the glaring spotlight of stardom.

With their immaculate appearance, synchronised dance movements and clean, pure melodic sound, The Shadows chalked up 35 hits of their own (not counting another 33 hits with Cliff Richard), giving them more hits than any other British group and securing them a solid place in the annals of popular music.

Today The Shadows make few live appearances, but The Bootleg Shadows keep their ‘live’ sound alive by performing a must-see concert that encompasses the Shadows amazing career from 1960 up until the early 80s.
