AUSTRALIAN music legends The Delltones will return to Twin Towns Services Club on July 13, their first visit in two years.

With a fantastic show that sees the group returning to its roots as a four-part harmony band, the first half of the show consists of well-loved classics from the early years like Get A Little Dirt on Your Hands, Come a Little Bit Closer, Hangin' Five and Gee.

The second half of the show consists of songs from the group's full-blown revival in the mid 1980s, with songs from its classic rock 'n' roll album Bop Til Ya Drop and Ticked Pink, such as Get a Job and Papa Oom Mow Mow.

The Delltones have been entertaining audiences, playing, celebrating and elevating rock'n'roll for more than 50 years.

Ian "Peewee" Wilson, founding member and most recognisable Delltone and tall bass man, has kept the band alive from the original vocal quartet days to the transformation to a five-piece vocal band in the early 1980s.

This transformation led to the band's resurgence and the chart-topping revival album, Bop Til Ya Drop.

Today the band has come full circle and has returned to its roots, a four-part harmony band.

The Delltones remains one of the most consistent live entertainers in Australia, with arguably the longest performing and recording history for a vocal harmony band with an original member.

Don't miss the Daily News on Saturday for your chance to win one of five prizes, including a Deltones CD and a double pass to the Twin Towns show.

Visit twintowns.com.au or phone 1800 014 014 for bookings.
