Peter Noone of Herman's Hermits

Into something good? The 2017-2018 Performing Arts Series (PAS) at Oklahoma City Community College (OCCC) presents Herman’s Hermits Thursday, Oct. 5, 2017, at 7:30 p.m. in the college’s Visual and Performing Arts Center (VPAC) Theater.

Herman’s Hermits starring Peter Noone is a must-see concert experience. Their first hit was a cover of Earl-Jean’s “I’m into Something Good” written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King, which reached No. 1 in the UK Singles Chart and No. 13 in the U.S. in 1964. They had two US Billboard Hot 100 No.1s with “Mrs. Brown, You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter” and “I’m Henry the Eighth, I Am,” a song which Peter Noone’s Irish grandfather had been known to sing when Noone was young.

The Hermits appeared in several MGM movies, including “When the Boys Meet the Girls” and “Hold On!” They also starred in the film “Mrs. Brown, You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter” and appeared in the 1965 anthology film “Pop Gear.” The group was nominated for two Grammy Awards in 1965 for “Mrs. Brown, You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter.”
