About this memory

2010 – Raymond’s daughter was approaching her 40th birthday and asked her Dad if the HIPPLES would do a spot at her birthday party which was set for a Saturday at Currie Rugby Club.

The answer was a unanimous, if nervous yes.

This would be the first appearance of the original HIPPLE PEOPLE for more than 40 years, albeit a private party.

The set included many of HIPPLE favourites
Keep Your Hands Of My Baby
Route 66
Treat Her Right
Poison Ivy
Get Ready

Jim – A chill went down my spine when we kicked off with the Temptation’s Get Ready, a lovely feeling. We received a very warm response maybe not surprising given the family audience.

Ref no – 111 – 2010 – Jim
