'Red and Grey' - A brief introduction....
'Red and Grey' is a group of musical friends who formed over 20 years ago in High Wycombe to play covers music for charitable organisations.
the line-up included Elizabeth Medhurst, (lead vocals), the late Colin
Chamberlain, (lead guitar), Simon Lutter (backing vocals, rhythm guitar
and bass) and Robin Cooper (drums). From the group’s original members only Simon and Robin remain.
the years evolution and technical development has taken place within the
band, both musically and through line-up changes, but the original
concept for raising funds for charities hasn’t. Our ethos
is still to entertain with great music and to fundraise for good causes
and, at the same time, enjoy each other’s company and grow our
musical skills. We just love to perform for good causes!
Sadly Colin died of cancer following a brief illness just after leaving the band, but we had already decided that Cancer Research UK would be our main focus for fundraising. However, we have also always been available to play for other good causes.
Our current line up includes Robin on drums, Kevin Cobie on bass, Simon on rhythm guitar, our latest addition Nicky Sena-Cullen on lead vocals, Nik Baatz on keyboards and backing vocals, and lead guitar player Dr. John Carter.
hope you enjoy what we have to offer.
How did Red and Grey come to be so named? Simple! All the original members had grey hair apart from Elizabeth who had red hair.
Musically, we play rock and pop from the sixties to the present day. We have a large repertoire of songs and we're happy to structure the playlist to suit your event.
Our principle charity is Cancer Research UK, but we also perform free at fund raising events for other charities. We ask only for a meal and a couple of drinks in return. We rarely ask for expenses, however, if we have to travel more than 30 miles from High Wycombe, we may have to charge a small amount to cover our costs.
The band supplies all its own musical instruments, public address equipment and lighting gear and will travel anywhere to play, even abroad. We play at out door events too. We have a Public Liability Insurance policy sufficient to cov3er any of our concerts.
We’ve played a gig at Essen railway museum in Germany, a rowing club in Wales and open-air gigs and fetes in various counties – there are no boundaries as long as we can fit performances in with our ‘day-jobs’.
whole point for Red and Grey is to fund-raise, and to enjoy ourselves!
