Spotlite Dance has been running for more than 30 years and has seen many of its pupils go on to professional dance careers. Spotlite offers classes in ballet, tap, street and all aspects of modern dance from Frogmore Leisure Centre. All pupils have the chance to compete, audition and perform in productions with an aim to produce talented dancers who can perform and not just pass exams! Just as Spotlite Dance started their first number, the heavens absolutely opened up, and so, up went the umbrellas! The dancers, though, carried on with two energetic routines, with younger- and older dancers.

PERFORMING ARTIST FEATURE

Experience The premier Bob Marley & The Wailers tribute band is an 8-piece drawn from a squad of London`s top professional session players on the reggae scene. Dropping names is all too easy for their musicians - UB 40, Yellowman, Third World, John Holt, Aswad- they`ve played with or for everybody who is anybody on the Jamaican & UK reggae scene. Bob Marley and The Wailers’ music had a hard edge to it at that time with blues-rock influenced guitar lines and rebellious lyrics. This music crossed over like no Caribbean music had done before or ever has since and Marley himself was well on the way to becoming an icon. That icon has left a great musical legacy with tunes like I Shot The Sheriff, No Woman No Cry, Get Up Stand Up, Could You Be Loved, Is This Love, Jammin’, Lively Up Yourself, One Love, Redemption Song, Small Axe, Crazy Baldheads, Exodus, Three Little Birds, Trenchtown Rock (the Trenchtown Experience’s signature tune), Waiting In Vain, Natural Mystic, One Drop, Stir it Up and Them Belly Full - and Trenchtown Experience have performed all of these anthems over the years. Their original aim was to evoke the spirit of Marley’s music in his heyday in tribute to what was truly a great band, but were determined to do it on their own terms. http://www.bobmarleytribute.co.uk/ 38 around Yateley Gig on The Green Special SATURDAY 25 June 2016

One Step Behind

One Step Behind is the UK’s Premier and longest surviving MADNESS tribute band. Formed in spring 1993, the band achieved widespread recognition in an unusually short time, playing venues the length and breath of Britain including the Marquee Club in London & the Venue in New Cross. Jaunts into Europe and beyond are also common place. Members of Madness have joined the One Step boys on stage on a number of occasions. Sax player Lee Thompson has played a few times commenting the band were “Tight as a ducks arse” and “Brilliant”. Lee is also quoted as saying that OSB were “single handily keeping the good ship Madness afloat”. Drummer Dan “Woody” Woodgate joined the band on stage for “One Step Beyond” and told the boys he thought they were amazing. “That’s exactly what we used to be like - you’ve got it to a tee!” he said. Fine praise indeed! And he could not believe the keyboard playing used no overdubs and was all being played live! Perhaps the greatest tribute came from Suggs himself. At a gig at G-MEX in Manchester walked up to the microphone and said “By the way, we’re MADNESS not One Step Behind!!” The subsequent review in the Melody Maker bared the headline

“One Step Behind”. Fine praise indeed! One Step Behind has also appeared on television a number of times. Singer Ian Soulsby made an appearance on “Stars In Their Eyes” in the 1990s while the whole band appeared on children’s Saturday morning show SMTV (with Ant & Dec!) in 1998 performing their version of “Driving In My Car”. OSB also featured on the “Tribute Band Night” programme, filmed in Rotterdam and broadcast on Dutch TV in 2004 (see video clip). OSB’s most recent TV appearance was at the 2006 Proms party in Hyde Park, London. The band performed to around 50,000 people and a television audience in the millions! Each member of One Step Behind grew up as a Madness fan and perfecting his portrayal of his original Madness counterpart has been a labour of love. They strive to match every detail of the original, both musically and in appearance. Like Madness, One Step Behind is well known for their on-stage antics with which they build up an authentic ‘Nutty’ atmosphere. This is One Step Behind’s philosophy - to carry forward the mad mantle into the 21st Century and beyond.
