11 Apr The Somerville Gentlemen’s Band
Showing at: BHT Music
2019 is a special year for the Somerville Gentlemen’s Band. 40 years ago they released their album – “Far From Home” – and toured the country’s folk clubs and festivals to great acclaim. Then, real life intervened and the Gents took a long holiday… for 23 years!
But now the 70’s folk ‘boy band’ is back! They’ve re-formed, remodelled and regenerated, and all members – past and current – are presenting a history of the band in songs and stories.
The Gents burst onto the folk scene in the 70’s and quickly gained popularity in the clubs and festivals as a band of many elements – great musicianship on a bewildering array of instruments; a highly-imaginative and varied repertoire; and most of all, thoroughly entertaining performances, with stories and good-humored repartee.
“We want it to be a gathering of friends of the band, so please come and say hello! We really hope you can make it!”
