It has been 35 years since Bucks Fizz won Eurovision in 1981 with ‘Making Your Mind Up’. Originally a manufactured band, they have endured and gone on to be one our biggest musical success stories with an enthusiastic and loyal following. Currently on tour till the new year we proudly announce that one of their pit stops will be at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern.
In the early 1980’s four strangers were put together to perform in the song for Europe contest; which they won, Bucks Fizz then went on to become a global phenomenon and became household names racking up sales of more than 15 million worldwide and winning countless music industry awards, securing their place as an iconic 80’ band in music history.
Fast forward 35 years later and Cheryl, Mike and Jay (the original Bucks Fizz members) have been joined by Bobby McVay are still touring and showing that The Fizz, as they are now known, and their songs are as popular as ever. Audiences, old and new love hearing ‘Making your Mind Up’ and ‘The Land of Make Believe’ proving that, in a world where the charts are dominated by newly manufactured bands, you can’t beat the originals.
The Fizz released a new album in 2017 to much acclaim, and released two successful singles from it.
