"The Seekers" of Style

Above: The Seekers, looking very stylish and polished, performing the song, Georgy Girl—which was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1966.

The Seekers were a popular 1960's folk-influenced music group from Melbourne, Australia. They’ve sold over 50 million records and had a string of hits including: I’ll Never Find Another You, and Georgy Girl (the title song from the film of the same name). Mr. Peacock remembers singing along with his mom to the song Georgy Girl, while it blared through the AM car radio.

Looking Mod (above) circa 1965The Seekers: Keith Potger, Judith Durham, Bruce Woodley, and Athol Guy.

Mr. Peacock is inspired by the style of the gentlemen band members of The Seekers. They always looked so stylish in matching Mod trim-cut suits, or dressed casually in Ivy League style apparel. The perfect looks for this spring!
