Dave BerryFrom: Sheffield, England

Born February 6, 1941 in Woodhouse, Sheffield, England, Dave Berry is an English pop singer and former teen idol of the 1960s. Berry performed a mixture of R&B and pop ballads and was popular in Britain and Continental Europe, especially Belgium and the Netherlands. Berry never had commercial success in the US, where he is best known for the original versions of Ray Davies’ “This Strange Effect” and Graham Gouldman’s “I’m Going To Take You There.”

Dave Berry is best remembered for hits “Memphis, Tennessee,” “The Crying Game,” and “Little Things.” “This Strange Effect,” released in 1965, was written by Ray Davies. Berry had a #1 in the Netherlands and Belgium with his cover of the song. Early recordings all listed his backing band The Cruisers in the credits. Berry also regularly used session musicians Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, Big Jim Sullivan, and Bobby Graham. Berry continues to perform to this day.
