Sec­tioned to give fans an un­plugged treat

Hayes FM pre­sen­ter Hughie Dixon re­views the live band scene

Harefield Gazette - - LEISURE -

AHEADS up for fans of the un­plugged genre of mu­sic – you may want to tune into HayesFM at 9pm on Tues­day May 24 for the per­form­ing tal­ents of the mu­si­cal duo known as Sec­tioned.

Song writ­ers Jo Con­nor and Mark Fletcher, who hail from Slough, will be Hayes-bound for the show that airs be­tween 9pm and 10pm. A year-and-a-half ago Sec­tioned did not even ex­ist, but now, with 30 orig­i­nal songs un­der their belt, they are more than ready to rum­ble across the air­waves.

Tak­ing their name from a branch of math­e­mat­ics, The Ju­lia Set, a five-piece band from Hayes, play Phoenix Bar, in High Wy­combe, this Fri­day with sup­port from Cross­ways, Rain City Sirens, Hume and Cry Wolf.

The Ju­lia Set have a vast ar­ray of orig­i­nal songs that lie some­where in the sound spec­trum be­tween a progged up Paul Weller and a mod­ern day Moody Blues.

Their ma­te­rial tends to tackle weight­ier sub­jects such as re­li­gion and in­ner city work­ing life. Tick­ets are avail­able on the door for around £5 and the venue is open un­til 2am.

There’s an­other open mic/jam night new to Hilling­don. Start­ing this Wed­nes­day at the Crock of Gold at around 9pm, the guys from The Power of Soul will have their gear set up for your plea­sure.

All you need is a bit of tal­ent and the will to ex­press it to the eager au­di­ence that awaits. Have fun.

Be sure to tune into my in­ter­ac­tive HayesFM ra­dio show ev­ery Tues­day at 9pm to hear live and orig­i­nal per­form­ers, plus more lo­cal live mu­sic news. You can find HayesFM on 91.8fm in Lon­don or glob­ally on www. hayesfm.org.uk.
