Following on from the release of their brand new album That's What Happens on Warner Brothers Records which reached the top 20 and their headlining performance at The Royal Variety Show 2013.

Chas & Dave began writing and performing songs together in 1972, having been friends since the early sixties. Now celebrating their 50th anniversary by recording their first original album in 27 years which is a mixture of vintage rock 'n' roll songs and new renditions of their own rockney classics. The album also features special guest stars such as Jools Holland, Buddy Holly's drummer Jerry Allison and Hugh Laurie.

They reached the top 20 in 1979 with Gertcha, which became a nationwide catchphrase. This was followed by The Sideboard Song (Got My Beer in the Sideboard Here). In 1980 they hit the charts with Rabbit, which reached No. 8 in the charts and a No. 2 record in 1982 Ain't No Pleasing You. This was followed by further hits Margate and London Girls. In 1986 they had a top six record with Snooker Loopy.

They have also written title songs for TV shows ‘Till Death Do Us Part and Only Fools & Horses.

Chas & Dave are great musicians and know how to give an audience a good time. They have gained a cult audience of both young and old and due to public demand they are about to be seen together on stage once more.
