Join Alive’n’Kickin – a brilliant 1980s cover band with past links to the Mawson Road Community Orchestra – for socially distanced fun in an 80s groove, including top hits from Duran Duran, Simple Minds and Dexys Midnight Runners.

The volunteer promoter writes…

There are now two orchestras related to Mawson Road. I am personally connected with and play in the Mawson Road Community Orchestra. The other orchestra, Cambridge Community Orchestra, has a children’s orchestra with with I plan to help.

Some players from both orchestras perform in a Wind Quintet“Wind in the Willows”. We are keen to play as much as possible, promoting the more unusual orchestral instruments to potential players young and old. Without these instruments being taken up by young players, there will be no future orchestras.

We had a great crowd in the end, about 50 or 60 people, all socially distancing. We were really pleased as we also had lots of audience participation! Mawson Road is certainly a special place and a very musical place.

We were so chuffed to perform. One song we did, Roam by the B52s had never been performed before. We learned all our parts independently during lock down and sent recordings to each other to see if it was working. We were worried it would not come together, but luckily it did!

Rehearsal studios are open again so we are very excited about getting some new songs together.
