In their heyday, the band’s popularity spread well beyond the North West of England as they managed four number one hit singles in South America.

Highlights during their musical career include touring with Rod Stewart in Europe as well as being personally chosen by Prince Charles to perform for him at the Liverpool Empire in 1978.

The band have been through a number of changes in their line up, but surprisingly, three original members

still carry the torch for the Liverpool Express – they are Billy Kinsley, Kenny Parry and Dave Goldberg.

And Billy’s daughter, Emma, is the owner of QV’s.

Their’s website was inundated with messages from fans urging the trio to create more music tracks.

There is also a ‘Best of Liverpool Express’ CD in the shops from Monday..

If you cannot wait until then be sure the catch the band performing at QV’s Cafe Bar, Nevill Street this coming Sunday.
