Just lately, I have started to perform in a series of special one-off church concerts with my great friends and favourite local band Thursday’s Band. There’s something about the atmosphere and acoustics of a church that seems to particularly suit our instrumentation and songs. To date we’ve played in St George’s, Anstey, Herts, St Peter’s, Felsham, Suffolk, and St Mary the Virgin in Stotfold, Herts – and we’re definitely hoping to find more. So if you know a church that likes something different and could do with a little help with the restoration fund…
‘Rarely has this building echoed to such wonderful music. Great music, first class musicians, and super songs. A thoroughly enjoyable evening’. (David Williams, Church Warden, Felsham)
‘Many people who would not normally have been attracted to a concert in church came along and they really loved what they saw and heard. It went down a storm! Churches throughout the land, I urge you to embrace something just that little bit different – you won’t regret it!’ (Ali Cossor, Organist and Parochial Council Secretary, Anstey)
‘Our church, St Mary’s, Stotfold, booked John Meed and The Thursday’s Band for a Sunday afternoon concert and they went down so well with the local audience that they request them back again. Folk and fun for two hours was just not enough.‘ (Reverend Jane Wheatley)
You can view some of our church concert videos below. Find out more about Thursday’s Band (right) by clicking here. And if you know a church that might enjoy a different kind of evening, please contact me here.
Our next church concert will be on Saturday May 30th 2020 in St Mary’s Church in Kettlebaston, near Stowmarket in Suffolk IP7 7QA.
