Kids Festival Area
Elemental isn't just for adults, we know that if we keep the kids happy and entertained then the big kids (their parents) will also be happy. There's nothing worse than dragging your kids round a car show with them whining on about being bored. We don't think your kids will be bored at our show :)
Once again for 2017 we're going to have a dedicated kids mini festival area with the help of Hoi Polloi and the Buffalo Tank who will be bringing along many things including the Art Cannon and a whole heap of festival strangeness
Beardy Keef's Festival Uke Jams have become quite a popular start to the festival day. Everyone can bring their Uke along with them to play along to popular songs we all know the words to.
Even if you don't have a Uke it's ok, there will be Kazoo's available for you to join in with. It's great fun and shouldn't be missed.
Visit Beardy Keef's website to find songbooks and play along videos and bring your uke if you've got one
Brian was in his late teens when his first band The Sequels played popular 60s covers in the Hampshire area in the early 80s. A decade or so later he was in a covers and writing 3 piece party band in Cambridges hire called Crimson Kipper among other things.
These days Brian has taken to the road solo with his acoustic act and a whole load of new songs on the subject of life and a host of covers and traditiona l tunes. At home in a pub, club or festival environmen t his catchy, witty, personal songs will strike a chord with many.
Audience participation at its very loudest.
We (and they) encourage you to join in and express yourself or take out the frustration over an as yet un-named mechanical failure with your pride and joy.
Hit stuff! Its fun!
Hailing from Essex, Calico formed in 2008 from the ashes of senior school band. New members were introduced, and the band started crafting their creation. Members came and went....Mainly drummers, but Calico continued to write and play the music they believed in.
The band have an eclectic sound inspired by a variety of genres.
Calico also recorded live tracks with Phoenix radio station and have been receiving airplay from them and many other regional stations.https://www.facebook.com/calicox/
Only started playing the guitar in late 2010, basically strumming away to bands like The Levellers, and to be honest nothing much has changed, I play songs that mean something to me and have stories and messages to send.
Simple songs played with feeling, both original and covers.
The Sweetchunks Band play an unusual, yet compelling amalgamation of parodic folk, rock, chap-hop and drinking anthems, fused into a Steampunk horsecarriage of farcical and anecdotal comedy. Not to be missed.
DEFERRED SUCESS (intention al spelling error!) are a 1,2,3,4 and sometimes 5-piece folk/punk/ rock/ anything-go es band from the depths of Essex consisting of Paul ‘Doozer’ Short, Chris Davison and Richard Benfield and some times others. Honest, infectious lyrics written by Doozer with exceptiona l accompanim ent from Chris and Richard on bass, guitars and harmonica.
Allergy are a versatile covers band guaranteed to cause a reaction!!
Allergy have played a vast amount of shows all over the country, from 100 club in soho to the Big Tent Festival in Scotland. They are masters at their game and will make every effort to make the event a memorable one.
Once again we've handed the party tent side of things over the the guys from Burt's Boyz who will be collecting donations for Marie Curie Cancer Care in return for their efforts to entertain you.
Burt's Boyz Speed Shop, do a great deal for Marie Curie cancer research. Elemental VW SHow always falls on or near SImon and Michael Hughes' birthdays. This year the Friday night is this very date. So they'll be celebrating in style and putting on a birthday party on the Friday night.
Saturday night there will be a change from the norm. Most shows provide a dance tent alternative to live music, we've tried this a few times with varying success. This year we're trying something totally new.
... because however cool you may be most of the time, if you've had a few beers and someone puts on Livin' on a Prayer or Final Countdown or... (you get the idea)... you'll sing at the top of your voice and dance about becuase.... it's dad rock, you can't help yourself can you?
