MUSIC LOVERS were wowed on Saturday afternoon (11 September) by local four-piece tribute band, 4th Avenue, who were the last performers of this year’s Borough Council-arranged ‘Music in the Mead’ outdoor concert.
The male vocal harmony group performed ‘iconic’ songs from a variety of genres as a part of their show from inside of the Diamond Jubilee Bandstand in the Argents Mead park.
Other performers who have played in the bandstand this summer for this year’s ‘Music in the Mead’ events, include Dean Thomas, Southall, The Misterons, Steven Faulkner, Out of Gas, and the Supersonic 90’s.
Coun. Keith Nichols, the Borough Council’s spokesman for Culture, Leisure and Tourism, has thanked all of the performers, events team and those involved in keeping the events safe for attendees.
He said: “A huge thank you to all performers who have entertained us this summer, to the council’s events team and a special thanks to the events assistants for their work in helping to keep the events safe for everyone.
“I’d especially like to thank everyone who came along to support these events this year. We look forward to seeing everyone again next year.”
Music in the Mead started in July, with three events held that month, continued in August with three more events, and finished with 4th Avenue on Saturday.
Interestingly, the Council’s website reveals that 4th Avenue were not originally planned to end the event, as one unnamed performer was pencilled in for this Saturday (18 September), however, this performance was ultimately scrapped.
