The Church Fitters at Wheatley Village Hall

by | 8 August 2018 | Music, Retford

The Wheatley Village Hall team is delighted to announce that the next concert will take place on Sunday 2nd September, at 7.30pm, with a very welcome return of the French-based group, the Churchfitters. The Churchfitters is a band like no other. A bass guitar made out of a frying pan. Heart-wrenching vocals accompanied by a musical saw.

Foot-stomping fast fiddle mixed with infectious funk-rock bouzouki. And traditional tunes reinvigorated with mesmerising jazz sax. The three virtuoso musicians from England and France strut their stuff on a stage that bristles with instruments — adding flute, banjo, dulcimer, tin whistle, guitar, ukulele, stand up dustbin bass and a sackful of percussion to their ensemble. And let’s not forget the unique ‘bing-bong’ machine made out of hack-saw blades. Throw in some exquisite harmonies, a slew of startlingly original songs and a few jokes that create instant rapport and you’ve got a high energy show that always leaves audiences cheering! They last visited us three years ago and were a sell-out. We are taking bookings now so please contact Carole on 01427 880758.
