Solihull Editorial 13th Apr, 2017   0

A GROUP of talented Solihull musicians followed in the footsteps of John, Paul, George and Ringo by playing at the spiritual of The Beatles.

Students from Saturday Music Centre, part of Solihull Music Service, travelled to Liverpool last month and got a taste of what life was like for the ‘Fab Four’ by playing at the legendary Cavern Club.

The Cavern Club is the cradle of British pop music and is the place where The Beatles found their musical identity.

Malfunction were one of many bands to play at the venue as part Solihull Music Services’ 60th anniversary celebrations.

The eight-piece rock and pop band, named Malfunction, were formed 12 months ago and became one of the youngest set of musicians to play at the iconic venue, with the band’s ages ranging from 10-12.

Richard Jones, deputy head of the service, said: “We are so proud of all the schools and pupils that took part in this years event.

“During the afternoon we had 13 schools performing on the famous stage as well as duos and trios performing at the cavern pub across the road.

“In the evening we featured ten acts from Solihull music service and Saturday music centre as they took to the ‘live lounge’ stage.

“The quality of the music was the best yet and I am proud that we are the only borough in the country that can do this. It goes to show that Solihull can pride itself on the music offer available to all Solihull students.”

Solihull Music Service works in partnership with local schools to assist pupils in all forms of music, while also enriching their lives by offering them a chance to showcase their talent.

The aim of the centre is to complement and enhance the teaching of music, dance and drama in Solihull creating opportunities for instrumentalists and singers to take part in a variety of ensembles according to their ability.
