Music students from Cronton Sixth Form have been offered the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of musical greats such as Paul McCartney, Pink Floyd, Arctic Monkeys, Oasis, and many other legendary artists as they take to the stage in the famous Cavern Club in Liverpool.
The talented Cronton students who have already made a few trips to the Cavern over the past couple of weeks to rehearse for the event will take over the venue on Wednesday 20th March from 7pm – 10pm in what plans to be a fantastic night of music.
The evening will feature performances from all Cronton College Vocational Music students including recent ‘Big Bob’ battle of the bands winners ‘Hoag’s Object’, and Rainhill Musician of the Year, Niall Kavanagh.
Peter Kirby who is currently studying on the Level 3 Extended Diploma in Music and the drummer for ‘Hoag’s Object’ said, “Playing at the Cavern is a fantastic opportunity to raise the profile of our band! We would like to thank our tutors for making it a reality; we are going to make them proud!”
Shea McCrystal a student on the Extended Diploma in music and a huge Beatles fan said, “This is a dream come true!”
Course Team Leader for L3 BTEC Music and organiser Dennis Glynn said, “The music team hope everyone will be able to join us in what promises to be a truly outstanding, exciting and electrifying gig. The Cavern Club is the cradle of British pop music, the place where the Beatles musical identity was formed.
“Now it is our turn to take the spot light and be part of that rich musical heritage. The event is open to an invited audience of wristband holders only. Wristbands will be available at Cronton College reception, priced £2, in advance and on the night. We expect to sell out very quickly to please ensure you secure your wristband ASAP.”
