EDDIE WHEELER, MARK ELLEN & BERNIE HAGLEY OF VANITY FARE HAVE PERFORMED TOGETHER FOR MORE THAN THREE DECADES
Two Gold Discs - Over Five Million Record Sales

In the summer of 1968 - approximately one hundred years after the publication of William Makepeace Thackeray's famous literary classic "Vanity Fair"- the band Vanity Fare were born.

With their harmony vocals, melodic songs and a slightly different spelling to their name, they achieved great popularity on the British and European Pop scene, when their updated version of an old Sunrays number "I Live For The Sun" hit the charts.

Flying in the face of the incoming heavier trend of the late 60's was deemed professionally dangerous at the time, and you would have been forgiven for supposing that the band would be steamrollered out of the picture. Instead the public embraced their vocal harmony style, and a string of hits followed, giving Vanity Fare a unique place in late 60's and early 70's music history.

WITH THEIR SUPERB HARMONIES, OUTSTANDING MUSICAL TALENT & FAST MOVING HIT FILLED SHOW, THEY HAVE THRILLED AUDIENCES ALL OVER THE WORLD


With both "Early in the Morning" and "Hitchin' a Ride" achieving gold disc status, the group became established worldwide, particularly in the USA, where both songs were top ten hits and stayed in the charts for a total of twenty three weeks. Indeed, because of the bands association with the Hitch Hike dance craze, "Hitchin' a Ride" achieved cult status with many West Coast "hippies" fuelled by the enthusiasm of the radio DJs of the time.

Their warm cultured stage presence and excellent vocal harmonies established Vanity Fare as a top class act with its own unique sound. They became ideal material for the popular TV variety shows in Britain, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the United States. Recent TV appearances include Portugal's Lottery Show and on Spanish National Television with Chaka Khan.

Some top venues the band has appeared at include Wembley Conference Centre, The Sydney Showground, London Palladium, The Dominion Theatre, Royal Albert Hall and aboard the QE2. They also appear regularly at most of the established 60s & 70s festivals around Britain and Europe.

The bands current stage show reflects much of their thirty-four year history and features their own hits plus songs that have influenced them along the way.

Together they make a highly professional group with an impressive history and an outstanding stage show.
