Mike Pender

Lead guitarist/vocalist of "The Searchers"

This photograph was taken at the "Hall for Cornwall" on Thursday, 14 August 2008. Mike Pender was appearing on the package show, "Oh Boy! It's the Non Stop Sixties", along with "Chris Farlowe ", "PJ Proby", "Brian Poole" and "Vanity Fare".

The Searchers had many hits including, "Sweets for My Sweet' ", "Needles and Pins" and "When You Walk In The Room".

They were the second group from Liverpool after the Beatles to have a hit in the U.S.A. when "Needles and Pins" charted during the first week of March 1964.






This short clip of "When You Walk In The Room" is from my gig on Saturday 11th September 2010.
