It's Mad!

Headlining the Party at the Wharf on Saturday 18 July, Los Palmas 6 is a 7 piece and very authentic Madness Tribute Band and probably the best Madness tribute band in the world! In fact, the sax player, Steve Turner, played with the real Madness for 8 years.

The other musicians in the Madness Tribute Band LP6 are also world class musicians with world tours and European festivals under their belt. They have also played and recorded with other Ska and Punk giants such as Bad Manners, The UK Subs, Peter and the Test Tube babies, The Hotknives and The Lee Thompson Ska Orchestra.

It'll be a night to remember, so book your tickets now to avoid disappointment!

Los Palmas 6

Conducting workshop

The Randers Chamber Orchestra from Denmark gave a wonderful concert in Oundle on Friday 5 June. The next morning they were all up bright and early to give a conducting workshop to students at the Nene Valley Performing Arts Centre's Satruday session at Prince William School. Around twenty young musicians joined trhe orchestra under it's conductor, David Riddell, to find out just exactly what a conductor actually does.

It was a fun session and a great deal was learnt, not least by six of the youngters who were able to conduct the orchestra for themselves and discover that it takes a lot more than just waving your arms around to make music!
