The Grey Cats & Special Guests
Brockley Max 2016: Live Music
Saturday 28th May 2016
8pm – 11pm (free entry)
The fun of Brockley Max continues with live music provided by local musicians The Grey Cats and Special Guest band from 8pm onwards. Join us for entertainment and dancing.
The Grey Cats are a 7-piece band from South East London. they have a wide repertoire, including songs from the 60’s to the present day.
The Grey Cats first came together in late 2006, collectively inspired by the idea of playing their own brand of favoured rock / classic soul, influenced in music, and in mind by, amongst others, The Clash and the Late Great Joe Strummer.
Their Brass led sound – provided by ‘The Brass Monkeys’ – is distinctive, and they mix covers with their own material. They’re more than happy to take up any suggestions for numbers they should cover and whenever invited to play they always try and fit in a couple of numbers requested by their hosts!
Joe Strummer felt that one of his greatest achievements was building bonfires around which people would gather, exchange views, make friends and enjoy life. The Grey Cats like to do the same – although they don’t actually go around lighting bonfires when they play – it’s a metaphor!

Soul Band – vocals by Ms Jaega Wise
Trulosound is a South London band that plays classic soul and a touch of reggae, all with a 21C London twist — they call it SafSol. That means anthemic tunes, tight harmony vocals, pumping bass and a percussion-fuelled beat, made for dancing. They’re all about creating a happy vibe and delivering an entertaining show, with something for everyone.
In the past 18 months the band has played at Lambeth Country Show, the Southbank, Putney Xmas lights party and various pubs and clubs.
Trulosound features Ms Jaega Wise on vocals, one of London’s hottest singers. Rhythm section Mel, Far I and G are veterans of the UK urban music scene. Mel played with seminal UK lovers rock outfit the Cool Notes; amongst many others, Far I worked with Linton Kwesi Johnson while G drummed for Acid jazz act the Night Trains. The multitalented guitarist Josh B – ‘the musical dojo’ – completes the line up.
