The Wish List (Soul repertoire project) week 11 of 12

  • December 2 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

You choose the songs; we learn them; we play them as a band. 

What's your personal Soul wish list?

Please nominate the songs you want to play. This time round, we are changing the format. Once we learn a song, we keep it in the repertoire and continue working on it.  

Here's an opportunity to bring back those songs from our first two series that you didn't want to leave behind - we must have learned over 60 songs. Now, the learning load will be considerably lighter and less frenetic.  

Please post your suggestions for songs here as a "Comment" in our Taster session’s listing. Others can then "Like" or comment on your suggestions.

This is for: lead vocals, backing vocals, guitars, bass, drums, keyboards, percussion, strings, horns - trumpets, trombones, all saxes

The workshop will be led by Andy Dummett.

Andy has been privileged to play with a number of Soul legends including Stax, Atlantic and Motown recording artists - Eddie Floyd, Solomon Burke, Ben E King, Percy Sledge, Edwin Starr, Martha Reeves & the Vandellas, the Memphis Horns, Steve Cropper, Teenie Hodges, Sam Moore (Sam & Dave), Leon Ware, Dorothy Moore.

The series starts on Friday, 16th September with an initial Taster session on 9th September.

Fees:

12-week series: £120

6-week Half-term (Weeks 1-6 or 7-12): £75

Per session (drop-in): £15 

Initial Taster session: £10

We can agree instalment plans for payment of 6 or 12-week programmes. This would involve paying as if on a drop-in basis until the full balance has been paid.

Your fees include the group's costs for rehearsal studio rental and hire of mic's, PA, bass amp, guitar amps and drum kit.
