The Ashdown Band
The band has been together with this lineup since '98, though we have played in various band combinations together since '76.
Peter Lacey vocals/guitar.
Pete Caruana vocals/bass.
Jon Fielder vocals/keyboards.
Ralph Martin vocals/drums.
We cover most styles with particular enthusiasm being for Beatles music, soul, tamla, pop, reggae and melodic rock from the 60's and 70's.
The repertoire in total goes from 50's rock'n'roll to recent charts hits.
The band usually performs a quiet unplugged set of more laid back songs featuring 3 and 4 part harmonies during the early part of the evening.
Behringer 1000 watt P.A. with side fill monitors. Mixing done at stage end.
8 par-cans on tripods plus 2 moving disco projectors plus main spotlight to illuminate band and dance floor.
South East based and will travel to these areas: South East.
Effingham Park Hotel, East Grinstead. Ashdown Park Hotel, Forest Row. Victoria Club, Lingfield. High Rocks, Tunbridge Wells. Ravenswood, East Grinstead. Christ's Hospital School, Horsham. Sussex Yacht Club, Shoreham. East Court, East Grinstead. Queen Victoria Hospital, East Grinstead...
plus many private functions from house parties and garden marquee receptions to those using large hired halls.
A very good live band who really know how to make everyone at a party get on to the dance floor.
A really good, crisp sound. Very professional. Makes you want to hear more. Good value for money.
They played at our staff party. started off with some softer dinner music then after dinner got everyone dancing solidly for 2 hours! Classic songs, well performed. The recordings don't quite do justice the energy and sound quality they get live.
Fab act we've seen them several times, and had them for our daughter's wedding - would thoroughly recommend them
Brilliant night,I can highly recommend this band.
"'Thanks guys! Great choice of songs. A lively and memorable evening."
Nathan Farrar. (Wedding reception)
"I would like to pass on our thanks to the band for playing at our daughter's wedding reception. We really liked the quiet first section, and then the lively dance music in all those different styles."
Sally Taylor. (Wedding reception)
"I thought we might only be able to fit a disco in our marquee, so was surprised you could set up all your band in the space. A great night!"
Julie Martin.(Birthday party)
Lots of people on the staff have told me how much they enjoyed the band at the Christmas party. Several mentioned the good choice of songs. See you next year!"
Jill Botting. (Corporate party)
We play in a very wide variety of styles all completely live...no backing tracks are used.
We often perform a quiet unplugged set during the earlier part of the evening.
We include an actual disco session to include all the current charts hits... (requests possible)
