Tracy Coleman - Female Singer - Bermondsey, London Event Location: Gallery Different, Percy Street, Fitzrovia, W1 Event Type: Independent Gig 10th October 2015
If you ever see this band advertised, do your best to get to hear (and see) it. It's a duo comprising Tracy Coleman, voice, and Stuart Hall, various guitars. Tracy sang with us during the summer and was sensational and Stuart has played with us many times on double bass always to huge appreciation for his musicianship and eccentricity. And Plum Busby, which can expand and contract like the Elastic Band, sing and play from an eclectic songbook of many styles, with an accent on good tunes, wit and virtuosity. If you don't like them, I'll refund your entrance fee and have you sectioned.

Ah yes, the invigorating presence of the incomparable force that is lead singer Tracy Coleman. Funny, friendly and luscious, Tracy Coleman is the singer, dancer and incidental comedienne who provides the honeyed va-va-voom that sticks the show together. Her backing singer, adept harmoniser and perfect foil is the gamine Mandy Carlton. Versatile and creative Stuart Hall can't get a word in, so he just makes more music on an impressive range of instruments. Founding father of the group and self-appointed master of ceremonies is the multi-talented guitar and vocals man Huw Thomas, a dab hand at playing two recorders simultaneously, though his preliminaries try to persuade ...
