Following on from last year’s successful ten year anniversary shows, Fightstar appeared at Wolverhampton Wulfrun Hall last night, performing tracks from previous albums and songs from their latest album, ‘Behind The Devil’s Back’.
THEATRE: Shrek The Musical
Myself and my son went to see Shrek at the Wolverhampton Grand theatre and we had a great time.
Actor Dean Chisnall did an excellent job as Shrek as did Bronte Barbe as Princess Fiona. As Donkey, Idriss Kargbo seemed to gain confidence vocally as the performance went on and truly shone in the second half of the show.
dREaM by RelaxListen
Relax Listen blend a fusion of many styles including rock, synth pop, jazz and classical. They tend to be catagorised as ‘Easy Listening’. Their latest album is a concept album based on dreaming and dreams. The font for the title cleverly emphasises REM (rapid eye movement) and this is just one of the original ideas from it. Here is my review (and some very interesting information on dreams from Relax Listen!):
Joe Francis: Swing Easy
Professional crooner Joe Francis is to perform a concert at the Adrian Boult Hall in Paradise Place, Birmingham UK on Friday 14th August.
He has been described on BBC Radio 2 as being the exception to the rule of singers of this genre who sound the same and he has been perfecting his craft since the 80’s.
Mark Maze - Uncomfortable Truths
Mark Maze is an English Singer/Songwriter who has written songs mainly about heartbreak and individualism. Comparisons are being drawn amongst others to Michael Jackson and Bruno Mars.
Mark was born and raised on a rough council estate near Leicester until his parents divorced. His drive and love of music inspired him to want a better life. He has experience in working at a talent agency and uses this knowledge and experience to appreciate what seperates people from their competition.
Here is my review of his album ‘Uncomfortable Truths’:
