A Tribute to Pink Floyd. Amazingly only been going since 2017 but these guys have nailed it and are sweeping the country.
After two years searching for passionate Floydonians (and many, many auditions), suddenly it all came together.
Their core band met for the first time early in 2017; played 5 Floyd tunes flawlessly; and here is the result. They still pinch each other every time we meet.
Their aim is to recreate the tunes of Pink Floyd as precisely as they can, using the best of their studio and live recordings as a guide.

Motorcycle Display Team
A rock and roll band that makes eminently danceable songs with melodic vocals and driving rhythms.
To date they have four eclectic releases to their name:
The Crayon Masterpiece (EP, 2009)
Captatio Benevolentiae (LP, 2012)
Letters of Last Resort (EP, 2015)
Yours Probably (LP, 2018)
They have played hundreds of shows across toured Ireland, the UK and Italy, becoming a tight, professional, candid and energetic live act.
Always a hit at festivals, they have received some great reviews and comparisons with Bowie, Zeppelin, Buckley, QOTSA and the Manics are frequently made.
MDT is Steve Hinds (vocals, guitar), Jim Chapman (bass) and Morgan Condon (drums).
MDT’s style is broad, but they build songs using soaring vocals, melodic hooks and unexpected ticks, all woven together in tight rhythm and delivered with a wink and a snarl. Steve’s pen doesn't discriminate. His lyrics tackle themes from kidnap to creationism, mental illness to misanthropy, patriotism to penis envy. The songs are often reflective of the trials of life but always engaging. All this weight is tempered with a dark sense of humour which runs vividly throughout.
Notable achievements for MDT include Absolute Radio's “Unsigned Band Of The Week”, plays on BBC 6 Music Introducing, XFM, BBC London 94.9, Music Week, Right Chord Music’s “Band Of The Week”, Emerging Icons, God Is In The TV and Room Thirteen coverage. Also, their music has been featured on TV shows in the UK and USA.
In 2015, MDT had the honour of touring in support of legendary The Crazy World of Arthur Brown followed by My Life Story. These tours resulted in MDT’s live reputation spreading and a buzz continuing to grow around them.
Im a solo singer songwriter based in Essex (Stanford Le Hope). I’d refer to my genre as indie with large influences on my songwriting from bands such as The Beatles, Oasis, U2 and The Verve and from some of my favourite singer songwriters such as Billy Joel and Elton John.

Punk Rock band from Southend-on-Sea, Essex UK
KYU are a 3 piece indie rock band from Colchester Essex, who write original music ranging from sweeping melodies to punchy riffs, complemented by a side of funked up bass lines and striking drums.
The Small Faces are without any shadow of doubt, one of the most sensational British bands of the 1960s, and are as much a part of the soundtrack to the fabbest decade ever as The Beatles, The Stones, The Kinks, The Who, or anyone else for that matter!
Hitting the charts as teenage mods with their very first disc, 'Whatcha Gonna Do About It', the four diminutive Cockneys went on to release numerous timeless classics including, ‘Sha-La-La-La-Lee’, ‘Here Come The Nice’, ‘Itchycoo Park’ and ‘Lazy Sunday’.
The band are almost as famous for their groundbreaking psychedelic LP, ‘Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake’, which topped the UK’s album charts in 1968. Released a whole year before The Who’s ‘Tommy’, it’s widely regarded as rock’s very first concept album.
The Small Faces split in 1969. Lead singer Steve Marriott – recognised as having one of the greatest ‘blue-eyed soul’ voices ever – went on to have huge international success in the 70s with Humble Pie. The rest of the band – Ronnie Lane on bass, Ian McLagan on keyboards and Kenney Jones on drums – hooked up with Ronnie Wood (later to join The Rolling Stones) and Rod Stewart and had massive worldwide success of their own as The Faces.
Interest in The Small Faces never went away though, and was re-ignited by Jam frontman Paul Weller’s fascination with them in the late 70s, and again in the 90s by Britpop bands like Blur, Oasis and Primal Scream name checking them in interviews as a massive influence. More recently, bands like The Arctic Monkeys and The Kaiser Chiefs have declared themselves to be huge fans too.
But while fans of other great 60's bands had tributes to their heroes to see, to recreate the original live experience, The Small Faces were unrepresented. Until 2007 that is, when they got their very own tribute at long last - THE SMALL FAKERS.

John Power (CAST/The La's)
Having first made his mark on the UK pop scene in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s with renowned Liverpudlian quartet The La’s, Power left the group to form a new group called Cast. The timing of band’s emergence was perfect, chiming with the mid-1990s rise of Britpop and, with guitar-based kindred spirits such as Oasis and Blur dominating the charts, Cast’s first two LPs, All Change (released in 1995 and reputedly Polydor’s biggest-selling debut album) and ‘97’s Mother Nature Calls both sold over 1,000,000 copies. Edsel released deluxe reissues of all four Cast albums early in 2014.
John will be joined for these shows by Cast/The La's member Jay Lewis
Chris Helme (The Seahorses)
is an English singer-songwriter, formerly the frontman of John Squire’s post Stone Roses band The Seahorses.
A friend of John Squire's long-time guitar technician Martin Herbet discovered Helme busking outside Woolworths department store in York's Coney Street. Impressed by Helme's version of The Rolling Stones song, "No Expectations", he requested a demo tape and passed it on to Squire. Squire went to see Helme perform at Fibbers on 26 May and 16 June 1996.Another gig was then arranged at the Roadhouse venue in Manchester, where Squire invited Helme to join his new band, for which he had already recruited bassist Stuart Fletcher.

Originally formed in early 2017, Gin Logic have been rocking the Essex and London music scene with gusto. In early 2019, after some changes, Leif, Aaron, Gavin, Seton and Rich are taking Gin Logic to the next level with a sound that is familiar yet different to anything else out there. A plethora of different influences, ranging from Delta blues, through to grunge and metal, has helped forge a sound that is as equally funky and rhythmic as it is satisfyingly hard edged. A history of previous projects and gigging experience from within the band means that Gin Logic knows itself and continues to put its stamp onto the scene in a serious way.

The choirs have been growing from strength to strength in number and ability, showing the members that together we CAN achieve greatness.
We are now taking The BIG Sing to the next level and have set up our own charity so that our choir members can help make a difference and take what they’ve experienced to people who can’t come to us. The charity is called ‘The BIG Sing SOUL’ and SOUL stands for ‘Singing, Outreach, Unity, and Love’. We have collectively raised over £35,000 to enable our projects to begin. The charity focuses on three target audiences in areas where we have already established BIG Sing Community choirs – Schools, Disabled Groups and Hospital choirs for cancer patients and their families.
JOIN US! The BIG Sing has now grown to become a family for all ages. The choirs are open to everyone – you don’t need to have a fantastic singing voice – just bring your enthusiasm. There are no auditions – the weekly rehearsals are very relaxed but most of all fun! The songs taught are pop, motown, contemporary, inspirational, soul, and gospel songs. All with uplifting and motivating lyrics.
The BIG Sing Choir is living proof that by uniting together there is power in community. ‘Together we can achieve greatness’
