10cc will bring their timeless music to the Ludlow Garage on Sunday, August 4th!

One of the most inventive and influential bands in the history of popular music, one of the few bands to achieve commercial, critical, and creative success, and with more than 30 million albums sold, 10cc’s energies were not centered on image or celebrity status, but on creating highly sophisticated rock masterworks with mainstream appeal.

“I’m Not In Love,” written by Graham Gouldman and Eric Stewart and released in 1975, had a second life after being prominently featured in the soundtrack to the 2014 blockbuster film, Guardians of the Galaxy, spawning a number one soundtrack album. Similarly, 10cc’s 1978 hit, “Dreadlock Holiday,” was a key element of the soundtrack to 2010’s The Social Network.

Founding member Gouldman attributes 10cc’s lasting appeal to the quality and individuality of the band’s songs. “They don’t seem to date. We never followed any trend we simply wrote for our own pleasure. The fact that the songs are being played as often on the radio as they ever were shows how true that is.”

The 2024 live band line-up features Graham Gouldman – bass guitars, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, vocals; Rick Fenn – lead electric guitar, bass guitar, acoustic guitar, vocals; Paul Burgess – drums, percussion, keyboards; Iain Hornal – electric guitar, acoustic guitar, percussion, mandolin, keyboards, vocals; Keith Hayman – keyboards, electric guitar, bass guitar, vocals.
