|A Night to Remember at Watermans|
Join rock band "I Love Thunder" and guests for a musical celebration
Join rock band I LOVE THUNDER and special guests for a night to remember at Waterma’s Theatre on 26th October at 7.30pm. I Love Thunder are a band with a difference; most of them have some form of learning disability.
Over the past 6 months they have been using their BBC Performing Arts Funding to jam with a series of performers from a variety of different genres. This show will be a celebration of these encounters and some of the magic they all experienced along the way.
The evening’s line up will feature the following acts performing on their own and then joining I Love Thunder to showcase some of the highlights from their work together.
Marianne Hyatt and Bob Collum with Phil Martin
Two shining stars on the London country scene, both hailing from Texas. Expect sweet harmonies and authentic country tunes. Joined today by multi-instrumentalist Phil Martin on the fiddle and whatever else he feels like playing!
"..Collum's Anglophile Americana reaps subtle yet sustaining dividends" - Daily Mirror
Philip Wells and Sirish Kumar
Philip and Sirish explore the relationship between rhythm and speech. Sirish is an internationally renowned tabla player and Philip a champion of performance poetry under the moniker ‘The Fire Poet’. Together they form an unusual combination, often resulting in the most unexpected sonic journeys.
"Wells is superb - poetry for the people at last!" THE TIMES

The Alix Anthony Band
Alix is one of the most amazing guitarists on the London scene. He wields his midi guitar to create extraordinary sounds in a classic 3-piece power trio format. Expect a sprinkling of Jimi, some major funk and plenty of blues.
