The Melodians played at Westminster Abbey on Friday 21st February for Commonwealth Family Day. It was a wonderful event and the families really enjoyed it. Here is a photo and recording of the Melodians playing Rasputin.
Here is one of our new and original pieces of music composed and arranged by Tamla Batra and played at our Christmas Concert. It is a salsa rhythm.
Hope you enjoy it!
Remember this event last year?
The Melodians were invited to play at the Foreign Secretary’s Annual Garden Party on 12th June. They were delighted to accept (even though they were flying out to Belarus the next day) and arrived at Lancaster House for the evening event.
Everything went well and they also met a few celebrities at the event. Here are a few photos from the evening.
Art Night 2019 was a fantastic event. The Melodians performed 3 sets between 5.30pm and 9pm. It was noticeable that the crowd in Pancras Square would increase when our performance was due and each performance gradually got a bigger and more enthusiastic audience. We had to do an encore after the final performance as the audience was so keen!
Here is a video of the first performance of Rasputin.
This Saturday 22nd June will be Art Night 2019 in Kings Cross and Walthamstow. Don’t forget that the Melodians will be playing in Pancras Square Kings Cross from 5pm.
We have just updated the website to give you a more detailed view of our 2018 year. It was very busy and you will see some interesting photos and videos. Hope you enjoy them.
Now looking forward to the rest of 2019 and lots of possible exciting events but none fully confirmed yet. Watch this space.
I hope you all managed to listen to Jeremy Deller on Desert Island Discs today at 11.15. It was a very interesting insight into Jeremy Deller’s life and work. If you weren’t able to listen to it then it is available on-line and will also be repeated on BBC Radio 4 Friday 11th January at 9.00am. Here is a recording of our rehearsal of Hallelujah (which was one of Jeremy’s selections) with Jeremy Deller at the rehearsal with us.
