Biography

The Dave Clark Five, often called The DC5, were an English rock and roll band formed in Tottenham in 1958. In January 1964 they had their first UK top ten single, “Glad All Over”, which knocked the Beatles’ “I Want to Hold Your Hand” off the top of the UK Singles Chart. It peaked at No. 6 in the United States in April 1964. Although this was their only UK No. 1, they topped the US chart in December 1965, with their cover of Bobby Day’s “Over and Over”. Their version of Chet Powers’ “Get Together” reached No. 8 on the UK Singles Chart retitled as “Everybody Get Together”.
They were the second group of the British Invasion to appear on The Ed Sullivan Show in the United States (for two weeks in March 1964 following the Beatles’ three weeks the previous month). They would ultimately have 18 appearances on the show. The DC5 were one of the most commercially successful acts of the British Invasion, releasing seventeen top 40 hits in the US between 1964 and 1967, and were briefly considered serious rivals to the Beatles. The group disbanded in early 1970. On 10 March 2008, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
