The Alexander Hosea School PTA has come up with something special for you to get your teeth into next month – a night in the company of nationally and internationally-acclaimed northern band ‘Munch!’
As many of our regular party-goers know, we have enjoyed some great nights down the years in our efforts to raise funds for the school, with a wide array of weird and whacky themes. But this event looks like being something else!
The Munch trio have a magnificent pedigree when it comes to their
musical backgrounds, which is why they have been performing
professionally across the length and breadth of Europe since the late
Take drummer Robin Hill, for example. Having once played in the same
band – The Squad – as Terry Hall, who went on to join the famous 1980s
Two Tone group The Specials, Hill has toured with supergroups such as
The Clash and the Communards, while backing vocalist and guitarist
Colin Trevorrow worked with The Farm and The Shamen, earning him
appearances at Glastonbury Festival and the Royal Albert Hall.
The third member of the trio, Mike Deakin, developed his singing and
guitar strumming skills in the company of a member of the famous
Liverpool band The LA’s and is these days a professional session
Munch will be helping our St George’s Night celebrations go with a
swing on Saturday, April 26th and you can certainly expect a vast
repertoire of songs from them as they belt out rock, pop and dance hits
from the 1950s through to the present day.
Be warned too, the trio relish getting members of their audience up and
out of their seats, which means you might just get the chance to show
off your so-called karaoke skills alongside the pro’s – and who knows
what might stem from that!
Considering they hail all the way from Merseyside and are in such high
demand, we are privileged to have Munch come and perform for us over
two hour-long sessions during our St George’s Night entertainment,
which includes a ploughman’s and disco, all of which gets underway at
They are described as “dynamic and good humoured”, a group who play
“lively, danceable hits from the 50s through to present day No1s.”
