THE BOOM BAND
The Boom Band features 4 superb guitarists-Jon Amor (The Hoax), Marcus Bonfanti (Ten Years After), Mark Butcher and Matt Taylor (Snowy White/The Motives), plus keyboard player Paddy Milner (Tom Jones/Jack Bruce). Their debut album received rave reviews across the board. Van Morrison declared "this band is great – they're on the money!", after the Boom Band had backed him at the Paul Jones' Charity Show in December 2014.
Every one of the front line is not only a great player but also a fine singer and talented songwriter. Everybody brings something to the party, there are no weak links. And, perhaps remarkably, at the same time there are no egos. Everyone has the experience and temperament to be able to sit back and let others shine and then step up and shine themselves when the time is right. The band is currently in the process of writing new material for their second studio album, due 2017. http://www.matttaylor.info/the-boom-band. £15 (£13 Members).

WHY NOT JOIN A CHOIR?
Formed in 2010, Sheen Gate choir is a mixed age amateur choir ~ some members have young children (the 30 somethings) whilst others are young at heart. It is a very friendly, fun-loving choir with music at its heart. We want to build on the strong links we have in the community so it’s time to invite new voices to try us out. We don’t ask for previous experience in a choir or the ability to read music perfectly, just a good ear and a love of singing. However, if you can read music and play an instrument all the better!
We rehearse on Tuesday evening during term time from 8pm - 9.30pm at Christchurch and then head to
The Plough or The Victoria for drinks.
We are rehearsing Schubert’s Mass in E flat this year and will be performing it on
Saturday 17 June at Christ Church in East Sheen.
The choir will then go to Vienna to perform it at St. Stephen’s Cathedral
(with other choirs from all over Europe)
as part of Schubert’s 220th birthday celebrations.
Come and share our passion for singing …. You don’t need to have previous experience in a choir or be able to read music perfectly, just a good ear and a love of music.
If you’d like to try us out please email Tricia Joshi on email@example.com
