With all the work needed to move to a new venue last year and the alternative attractions of the Football World Cup we decided not to have any live music for our first year at Hannakin’s Farm Community Centre. Having settled in nicely last year we feel it is now time to bring the music back and have booked three local acts to entertain you in the centre’s Lounge Bar.
Acoustic Affair – Saturday 15:00 – 17:00
This duo are top and tailing June in Billericay with an apperance at The Railway on the 2nd before ending the month at the Beer Festival
Mags – Saturday 18:00 – 20:00
A familiar face around the music scene of Billericay, this time performing solo. The mighty Mags will be providing the Saturday evening entertainment.
Monkies Wedding – Sunday 15:00 – 17:00
A Guitar and Sax Duo from Canvey playing Ska, Rocksteady, Reggae, Soul, Pop
Dave and Mike had a Duo back in the late 90’s, FAB,inc and have a good history of work together, They have both worked for various bands throughout the country and Europe.
In 2010 after a meeting and a few beers they agreed that as a duo they had worked really well and after getting together for a jam, Monkies Wedding was formed.Playing songs they both grew up on and have a passion for is what Monkies Wedding is all about.
The Beat, The Specials, Madness and Bad manners are among the Top of the list but also adding a bit of their own style to great modern and retro tunes to keep the punters singing and dancing.
Ska is the foothold but modern pop and good old Rock ‘N roll fit neatly into the repertoire.With wit and great musicianship they are now becoming a regular to the Essex playlists and parties.
