Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

A NEW Mac­cles­field band have won the chance to play the open­ing night of a new mu­si­cal about Tom Jones.

Cas­sia were cho­sen to play at the Lowry on Wed­nes­day (May 25), the first night of the pro­duc­tion of Tom the Mu­si­cal, af­ter a pub­lic vote.

The three-piece features Robert El­lis, 20, from Prest­bury, on vo­cals and guitar, Lou Cot­ter­ill, 19, from the Moss, on bass, and Ja­cob Leff, 20, from Tyther­ing­ton, on drums.

The band de­scribe them­selves as play­ing a ca­lypso pop/in­die style.

The group started play­ing to­gether last year and have started build up a fol­low­ing with gigs all over the north west in­clud­ing a few venues in their home town.

Rob said: “We’ve been re­hears­ing a mad amount, all day, most days a week for the last four or five months, ar­rang­ing the tunes and writ­ing. We have set­tled upon a strong brand that we think re­flects our music, us as a band and also us as in­di­vid­u­als.”

Cas­sia are also pre­par­ing to take their sum­mery sound on the fes­ti­val cir­cuit.
