3 NEW Southend YMCA bands shine at 'Southend Rising' at Caddies!

October 22, 2019

 

On Sunday the 13th of October 3 new bands formed at Southend YMCA took to the stage at Caddies for Southend Rising in collaboration with Essex Vocal Coaching. 10 of our young musicians did themselves proud at their debut band performances playing to an absolutely packed out venue.

 

The bands received high praise from the public for their renditions of popular songs that they have been practicing for just 6 weeks to lead up to this performance. A fine mixture of Rock, Punk, Pop and Indie covers certainly kept the keen listeners engaged.

 

Our incredible performers for this occasion were Elora Walton, Sarah-Jane Kirby, Alice Berry, Luke Evans, Alex Newman, Chloe Payne, Leon Adams, Josh Jackson, James Kay and Nate Doucette. The bands were accompanied by our tutors Tom and Davey who facilitate their weekly band sessions.

 

All these young musicians are now focusing on new material to perform at our annual event the Southend YMCA Youth Awards held at Leigh Community Centre on the 14th of November.

 

A further congratulations to all the performers from Essex Vocal Coaching who dazzled the crowds with their original material.

 

A special thank you to Lee Tearell and all the team at Caddies for having us at this special event. See you at the next one!
