8th DECEMBER   THURSDAY’S BAND and 8 Floor spots

 

 

 

 

 

Thursday’s Band are one of the UK’s most intriguing acoustic bands – consisting of a unique combination of guitars and strings brought to life by intelligent original song writing. Their repertoire has been described as spine-tingling, spellbinding, and ‘the most beautiful music I’ve heard in years’.

 

Coming from an eclectic background that includes folk, country, blues, cajun and orchestral music, the band includes Mark Gamon (guitar, vocals and songs); Matt Kelly (fiddle, viola, mandolin, vocals and songs); and Rhys Wilson (guitar and vocals).

 

Thursday’s Band have released two full albums, and they are available from

www.clunkandrattle.com and www.thursdaysband.bandcamp.com

 

 

 

 

22nd DECEMBER RETUNE Christmas Special

 

 

 

A Night to fund raise for a Charity and a cause so near and dear to our hearts

 

With a packed evening of live music featuring the pick of our acts over the past year each playing songs that will delight and entertain you

 

 

 

 

 

 

JONO

Jono are one of the most respected bands in the area ranging across Hertfordshire, Essex and creeping into London and as far north as Suffolk. They are respected because they do exactly what they say on the tin. 70’s, 80’s and 90’s Rock Classics Covers.

JONO comprises Mike Johnson, Ed Johnson, Kris Ambrose and Cormac O’Prey all accomplished musicians by any ones standard and can really make them sing.

 

 

 

BILL TARRAN

Bill is the host and MC for most of the year and only occasionally does he get the opportunity to play more than a couple of songs. So, its Christmas time and he gets a slightly longer set to celebrate the Festive Season. He will be joined by at least a couple of mates so that will be something to see.

 

 

 

 

 

BLUES INC

Stortford’s favourite boy band are making a welcome return to the Long Room to continue their mission to enthral and enchant the audience with their own brand of whatever it is they play. To be fair, with Drew moving towards South London, seeing them is now akin to a royal visit so it will be great to bring them back on stage in Stortford to pay homage to them. We expect to see the full line up of Drew, Andy, Grant, Louis and Graham fired up and ready to go!

 

 

TOM RYDER, JOE HAZELL

and GREG CAMBURN

It would be very difficult to have a benefit evening for Retune without having the essential parts of the organisation on stage. Tom is the Founder of Retune and Greg is the Chairman. Joe is one of the other two closest musical associates and the outstanding guitarist who spends his life adding twirly bits to other peoples and his own music in the studio, whilst Greg is the absolute master of getting wonderful sounds from his thingummy bobs, whistles and shiny bits of metal. Tom writes some of the most memorable songs you will hear.

 

 

 

They have performed together over the last 15 years or so as so many combos and bands, however together they make divine music and it is not often you will get to hear them together. Take advantage whilst you can.
