Marky Dawson Live at The Vaults!

Marky started teaching himself piano at 14. At 18, whilst studying at The London College of Music, he started working as a resident musician in bars and clubs. It’s here he developed his fast and wild Rock n Roll style piano playing skills along with his ability to interact with an audience. Taking requests and heckles, becoming an experienced showman. He mixes his versions of classics with his own catchy songs and some jokes. He’ll make sure you’ll sing along! He hates to sit still and has often been described as a Piano test Pilot. Marky is a charismatic entertainer with a voice most often compared to Freddie Mercury (His EP “First Takes” and included a seminal version of “Radio Gaga”) and Piano chops to make Jerry Lee Lewis blush. You will be entertained with the intimacy of a blues club, the performance of stadium act quality, and the fun of the pub. Remarkyble. https://www.wegottickets.com/event/460817

Gentlemen of Few

Gentlemen of Few were formed along the South-East coast of England in 2009, founded by four young musicians who each found a vast pleasure in their ensemble work as students. They shared a broad and varied history of musical experience between them, spanning multitudes of genres, styles and formats, opening up plenty of avenues for them to explore.

Unknowingly, they drew close and familiar with the raucous energy and excitement they unearthed from American Roots, Rock and Bluegrass songs and these they played loud and fast.

Though, in this time, powerful stories and meaningful words that spoke to them were collected from areas of music like folk and blues, which followed them closely when the boys began putting pen to paper.

Since the earliest days of their formation, these boys have grown together, struggled together and learnt together, facing everything as friends and brothers and experiencing, already, more than they could ever have hoped. 2012 saw their first record released as a six-track Extended Programme named “For All We Know” which included some of the boys’ earliest songs. And it was with a great deal of help that they held a launch of the EP in their home town of Deal which, after so much preparation, was a complete success, a sell out show and had helped the boys establish themselves as a prominent local act.
