Nothing beats live music where you can feel and enjoy the buzz, the atmosphere, the crowd, the band... it really is a case of "you had to be there to enjoy it". So although these videos only touch the surface, we hope you'll enjoy watching them, as they showcase the sort of stuff that we do. From our own material to well-known hits; from the big sized band to the smaller setups; with or without singers; from being in the forefront to backing other singers/groups... here's a little taster of what we're all about!
First up - Elliott Henshaw recently did some filming at Rubix Studio to promote their amazing facility (thanks to Bence Bolygo at Rubix Studio, Tina Clarke at Zildjian Cymbals and Jamie Corry at Active Music/Ludwig Drums). He performed a track that he wrote, which will be on our second album, "Trying Hard 2" - watch the space for release dates! The track - J.P. - features Fiona Asbury on soprano sax and Simon Bates on tenor sax. The arrangement was done by Simon Niblock and was recorded and engineered by Chris Traves.
