1997
The first highlight of the year was working at the Piccadilly hotel, Manchester, again with our old friend Frank Carson. It was Valentines day, and who are more romantic than the Bachelors?

Shortly after that John had a call from Blackpool promoter Duggie Chapman asking if the lads would like to do the North Pier Theatre Blackpool for five weeks as special guests in a show called It’s a Cracker.

This was to be the start of an association between Duggie and John Stokes Bachelors that was to continue for many years.
The rest of that summer, they starred in a triple bill with Craig Douglas and Jimmy Cricket, appearing in Scarborough, Skegness, and Southport.

This was followed by a tour for Irish promoter Peggy Jones on a double bill with Ireland’s number one country singer, Susan McCann.

It was at this time that Brian Goddard invited The Bachelors to join his show,
A Night at the Music Hall in the Grand Theatre, Wolverhampton. This, as they say, was the start of a beautiful friendship.
Once again the year was rounded off at the Norbreck Hotel, Blackpool.
