The Lamplighters visual impact is totally in line with the era of their music. Featured on stage are go-go dancers in mod mini dresses and knee high boots. The band are in narrow lapelled jackets , thin ties, stovepipe pants and pompadour hairstyles while playing vintage guitars and drums and singing into 1960’s chromed microphones!
