Doctor and The Medics and The Live Karaoke Band open Rewind Festival 2013

Doctor and The Medics, along with The Live Karaoke Band, kicked off this year's Rewind Festival at Henley-on-Thames with a spectacular Friday show for this year's weekend campers.

This year's Rewind Festival started at 6pm on Friday 16 August with an exclusive show for the 3,000 strong weekend campers as Live Karaoke Band, the UK's favourite rockaoke band, shared the stage with eighties cult legends Doctor and The Medics, performing a selection of their own hits and other classic hits from the decade.

The Doctor was joined on stage by his band members Adrian Hill, Dan Angelow, Jon Randle and Melissa Weekes and performed a pulsating one-hour set that included You Spin Me Right Round, Tainted Love, Kids In America, Wonderful World and, of course, Spirit In The Sky.

He was supported by three hours of rockaoke classics from Live Karaoke Band for what has to be our most favourite date in the diary.

You can check out exclusive photos from Friday night's show in our gallery.

Live Karaoke Band really added a special edge to our event. They were lively, professional, flexible and very accommodating to our needs. Their enthusiasm was admirable after what was I’m sure their umpteenth rendition of Build Me Up Buttercup!
