The London Cheerleaders

Phil Underwood

Phil performs traditional music and his own tunes and songs. As a boatman and canal musician Phil can play most folk/roots genres, including British Folk, Cajun, Creole, Blues, Shanty and World.

The Giving Style

An Americana-infused indie band whose guitar riffs are an electric roar, like a punch up between folk and punk. Add dirty, 80’s inspired electronics and keys, and a funky rhythm section, and we’ve arrived at The Giving Style.

Rock Choir

The UK’s largest and most popular contemporary choir, with more than 24,000 members in over 320 local communities nationwide.

Fat Arthur Band

Roll up, roll up! A musical circus is coming to town. Sit back and enjoy the kitsch, psychedelic, funky jug-band stylings of several musical misfits
without a home.

The Barbarian Horde

The Barbarian Horde are a three-piece ukulele/cello/drum outfit.

Et Tu BrucE

Blend pop, rock, folk, and country, and tie them all together with their signature harmonic sound; they have built a reputation for being the band to watch.

Phil Odgers & Bobby Valentino

Hot on the heels of his sold-out UK tour, Phil ‘Swill’ Odgers rides into town with the larger than life Bobby Valentino playing some mean violin alongside him.

The All Sing Choir

A local community choir, who have been singing at Cavalcade regularly since they were formed in 2009, under their brilliant director Isabelle Adams.
