RECORDINGS AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD
Back in June 2017 the band recorded some songs. No not at Abbey Road, we think that was another band! We went to the Titan Recording Studios in Watford, which suited our pockets a little better. The songs were recorded live in a single 3 hour session and authentically represent the sound we can deliver in live performance.

The recordings are available to download or listen to on The Rock Bottom Band page on Lemonrock.

========================================================

Meetings: Usually fortnightly, on the first and third Thursdays of each month, in the morning. There is quite a bit of variation depending on individual availability so check the specific dates on the rehearsal calendar. (See the link on the right).

Venue: Normally at the Study Group Leaders home but occasionally rehearsals are held at the Kings Langley Rehearsal Rooms.

Study Group Leader: Dave Cadd (Click on the name to email).

Line up: The Rock Bottom Band comprises
Greg on lead guitar and vocals
Dave on rhythm guitar and vocals
Peter on bass guitar and vocals
Andy on rhythm guitar
Paul on drums and vocals

What we do:
The Rock Bottom Band As Watford Park U3A’s resident rock band, Rock Bottom has a wide repertoire of great 1960s songs and more from the 50s, 70s and more recent times, (Beatles, Rolling Stones, Kinks, Hollies, Shadows etc). We now have considerable experience of playing pub gigs, dances and private parties and whilst most of our playing time is spent at regular rehearsals we are always looking for further opportunities to play and entertain publicly.

Our aim is to be able to provide a great evening's entertainment, tailored to your preferences, particularly for people of "our age" who can remember such a wealth of great music from our youth.

We are available for events both public and private. We don't charge for charitable events or of course for Watford Park U3A events. We would also be happy to play for other U3A groups or for private events by arrangement.

Vacancies: Sorry this group is full. We have a defined performance repertoire that we have practiced and learned. If you are interested to participate in a rock music performance group then the Study Group Leader will be happy to help you try to set up a new group. You just need to advertise within Watford Park U3A or possibly further afield with other local U3As. Hopefully, other players / singers will come forward. It's quite straightforward and you could easily find people who would love to pick up a guitar again now that they have a bit more time. This is how The Rock Bottom Band was started back in 2014.
