Who could have predicted that a band, which hit the top of the charts 50 years ago in 1961 with a song and style that were already forty years out of date, would still be around in 2017, still playing the same style of music?
The main difference now is that the band has a vast repertoire…. jazz classics from the past, original compositions, novelty numbers ….so whatever your taste in jazz The Temperance Seven will play it for you.
The band had a string of chart successes, notably with "You're Driving Me Crazy", which was Sir George Martin's first ever number one hit, and followed by other top ten hits like "Home in Pasadena", "The Charleston", "Hard Hearted Hannah" and "The Black Bottom", and still has a huge following in the UK and abroad.
The Temperance Seven play what they like, and their enormous enjoyment is hilariously transmitted to their audiences with their zany pythonesque humour.

Middlesbrough Theatre has quite a remarkable history. From it's conception in the late 1920's to its opening as the first architect-designed theatre to be built after the Second World War - it is the result of a 27-year dream and the unswerving dedication of theatre lovers in Middlesbrough.
Middlesbrough Theatre has an intimacy that belies its 486 seat capacity. A winning combination that has enabled the theatre to play host to a wide variety of performances from big bands and stand-up comedy to full-scale amateur musicals and Indian dance.
Middlesbrough Theatre continues to serve its community hosting performances from leading actors and renowned companies as well as by providing first class facilities to local amateur operatic and dramatic societies as well as young students from local dance schools and performing arts colleges.
On performance days, we re-open for telephone bookings at 6pm (1 1/2 hours before curtain-up on Sundays) and 3/4 hour before curtain-up for personal callers and stay open until 9pm. 01642 81 51 81
