About The Bands/Artists
FOREVER FREE Is Britain’s No.1 Free & Bad Company Tribute Band. FOREVER FREE is a dynamic rock band performing the music of Free & Bad Company two of the greatest rock bands of all time!
Heard By PAUL RODGERS Nice Interpretation! Looks Like You’re Having A Great Time And That’s What Its All About.
Playing such 70’s classics as All Right Now, Fire And Water, The Stealer, Be My Friend, Little Bit Of Love and Bad Company classics like Can’t Get Enough, Ready For Love and Shooting Star, Forever Free captures the essence of the sound of Free and Bad Company and aims to deliver live performances that will delight fans of Free and all who enjoy classic rock music!
Random Shuffle is a group of 4 local [Taunton] lads…well not that ‘laddish’ with an average age of 62[!!]- who have been around a bit in various guises/bands. The group consists of three experienced musicians playing keyboards/vocals, lead/rhythm guitar/vocals, bass guitar/vocals …..and a drummer!!
They do not play ‘yer usual rock’ covers but do play an eclectic, semi acoustic set of very recognizable, easy listening numbers and originals, that keeps everyone interested and appreciative, building to a stomping, jiving rockn’roll crescendo.
Ben F Goddard is the missing link, between the audience and the stage.
Having played around the country and settled back in Devon, his warmth, wit and relaxed style can make the largest room feel like a snug and the loudest heckle like the smallest child.
Getting ready to release his sophomore EP he is preparing to hit the road in earnest next year with his van Ivy and woodburner in tow.
With songs of beauty and lament for the world we find ourselves in, the only thing fit to do is laugh and cry. Ben certainly will. And you are welcome too.
Sharon Martin is from award winning band Lazibyrd, South West Music Awards, best folk act of 2013, and you’ll find Sharon Martin, vocals, violin and ukelele energetic, passionate, original folk with clever lyrics and beautiful music.
Sharon has engaged audiences across the South and in Ireland with her heart felt performances and excellent musicianship and has performed at many festivals and prestigious venues.
“As well as beautiful harmonies and captivating musicianship, lyrically they offer a refreshingly frank view of modern life which, wrapped in a joyful melody and their own sense of enjoyment, makes for music that is sure to resonate with any listener.” Thank folk for that.
