The Cherries [Modern Covers, 4 piece]
The Crowthorne Inn, Crowthorne10 Mar 2019The Crowthorne Inn, Crowthorne Whew! THAT was fun! On a rainy evening, the mighty Cherries did the business once again at The Crowthorne Inn in Crowthorne. We love coming down to see the locals, but this evening we were invaded by some of Dick's golfing buddies, who were in fine form; we even gave Lawrence our patented Happy Birthday. But the best bit was on our...ahem...'unconventional' version of Valerie, when we had the pleasure of Sean Williams's great sax playing! Really lifted the spirits of everyone in the Crow and turned a potential wash-out into a gig to remember. From merely great to unbelievable!Hope to see you at our next gig, which is on Friday 17th May 2019 at The Old Sergeant, Wandsworth - details on Lemonrock at:https://www.lemonrock.com/gig.php?id=613611Dick Cherry 07578 134252
The Roebuck, Wokingham3 Mar 2019The Roebuck, Wokingham O. M. G. (as I'm told the youngsters say these days)! We had our first gig at The Roebuck in Wokingham, and it was a BLINDER! Having had to reschedule due to unforeseen circumstances, we were determined to rock Wokingham to its very core. All I can say is, "Job done!" With the Aldershot crowd swinging by for a birthday celebration, and Lee Aaron & co. in the house, there was already going to be some serous atmosphere. But our hosts Helena and Jack were on top form and the reaction we got from them and the locals was out of this world! There was singing, there was dancing, there was (quite possibly) the best counting and support vocals on I'm a Believer we've ever heard - louder than the band! One of the best gigs this year, and it just may rank up there with our very best ever. Can't wait to get back there to do it all again.Hope to see you at our next gig, which is on Saturday 9th March 2019 at The Crowthorne Inn, Crowthorne - details on Lemonrock at:https://www.lemonrock.com/gig.php?id=601386Dick Cherry 07578 134252
The Crowthorne Inn, Crowthorne17 Dec 2018The Crowthorne Inn, Crowthorne Would you Adam & Eve it? Having torn down the house at the White Horse in Sandhurst just eight days previously, the mighty Cherries did much the same at The Crowthorne Inn in Crowthorne, just down the road, last Sat. We braved the wet weather and were rewarded for our efforts, as many of you did the same; the result was a top notch modern rock party. With 'Buck Rogers' and 'The One I Love' making welcome returns to the set list, we rocked on to our 'curfew', only to be egged on by patrons AND management for no fewer than two encores! What a way to banish the damp Dec blues.Hope to see you at our next gig, which is on Monday 31st December 2018 at The Old Sergeant, Wandsworth - details on Lemonrock at:https://www.lemonrock.com/gig.php?id=555721Dick Cherry 07578 134252
The White Swan, Sandhurst13 Dec 2018The White Swan, Sandhurst Here's a question for you; what is the best way to end a crappy week at work? And here's the answer: see the Cherries at The White Swan in Sandhurst! Or, in this instance, BE the Cherries. We've all been there - work wearing you down. It seemed as if the band had an extra dose of it by Friday. But when this affliction hits Cherries-town, the only answer is to kick out the jams! And kick 'em, we did. We were practically on fire! All of the necessaries (early bass solo, the odd forgotten word, and hats)(obviously) were in place, the modern rock we love was attacked in earnest. We even brought back our old, forgotten favourite "Ever Fallen in Love" in a tribute to the late Pete Shelley. Alcohol (and tonic) was consumed, old friends reunited (hello, Whispering Dave!) and more than a bit of marching was instigated by our patented fast, loud version of "500 Miles". By the time we gave everyone (Summer of) 69 (see what we did there?), the previous week was entirely forgotten! The universal cure of rock & roll had worked its magic again and there were sweaty hugs all 'round. Just the shot in the arm we (and you) needed.Hope to see you at our next gig, which is on Saturday 15th December 2018 at The Crowthorne Inn, Crowthorne - details on Lemonrock at:https://www.lemonrock.com/gig.php?id=560669Dick Cherry 07578 134252
