Newspaper article extract about the concert:

Funny, also slightly eccentric and bizarre, but diversified was the top act of the evening: SAILOR. The band is on the road in the original line-up apart from singer Nick Parvin. And apart from enjoyable music (sometimes it literally makes you swing and sway) a whole lot of fun. A performance with a high entertainment value. Additionally to guitar and drums the self-invented Nickelodeon was used, but also mandolin and accordion. The band also lived up to its name when they appeared in nautical outfits and with sailor-hats during a playback version of "In The Navy". And began to do a striptease, which was mercifully interrupted before anything serious happened. Some of the "Girls, Girls Girls" seemed disappointed, though...
Musically, "Mack The Knife" stopped by, and also the song "Karma Chameleon" got played. SAILOR-keyboarder Phil Pickett was co-composer of this song, as he proudly mentioned.
