In 1964 a wave of new energetic rock and roll swept over the youth of the world. On the crest of this wave was The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and of course The Animals. From the banks of the River Tyne came the North East’s offering; a brand of rhythm ‘n blues that the whole world seemed to grasp greedily.

2017 marked founder member John Steel’s 60th year as performing musician. Back in 1957 John Steel along with fellow Animals co-founder Eric Burdon began playing their trade in and around their native Tyneside with not even the slightest inkling that they would, in few years, find themselves part of a group that would be forever bracketed with the very best of British music: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and The Yardbirds. Respected all over the world. The Animals were also the second British band after The Beatles to top the American charts with their multi-million selling anthem, House of The Rising Sun.
