Open Mic Night (13)


16 Jun 16

Opening night for the open mic! Welcome to the twenty-first century, Woodbridge School! And it was fantastic…

Utopian Shift, The Rift (those were the best band names – and brilliant performances too from our Year 7s), The Year 8 Band, The Year 7 Band (great music but the names need work…), Jozef Gwizdala and Eleanor King-Gardiner (a rhyming pair, but solo performers, and stylish ones too), Allen and Cottrell (yes… the heads of the departments of physics and maths – this was anything but music by numbers: a wonderful variety of wavelengths and volumes), Voices 7 (definitely not music by numbers given there were only five of them, though they were certainly into measurements… you’d have to have been there to get my drift on that comment), and then three sixth form bands: the first two with overlapping members, one piece sung, one instrumental, and the last – Lenny and the Jets – offering their homage to Dire Straits and The Who.

Solos to quintets, covers and new material, vocals and instrumentals, singing along and clapping along. We had it all; the audience loved it, and the performers clearly loved it too – music as it always should be: shared, enjoyed, supported, intimate, engaging and entertaining! Many, many congratulations to all the performers, and of course to the impresario, coach, mentor, guide, performer and technician, Miss Ellen Foster!
