Russell Blackaller & Miles Guerrini
In 2008 Miles Guerrini and Russell Blackaller got together to perform as a duo. Russell Blackaller was Head of Performance Arts Kingshill School and director of countless shows – but he’s now turned professional director and lends CLBB his piano and accordion skills. Miles Guerrini sang around the world and in London’s West End musicals before moving to Gloucestershire, and spares no opportunity to dress up and explore his theatrical roots.
From a duo to a full on, interactive, theatrical experience!
Guy Guerrini, (yes, brother of Miles) previously Head of Music at Kingshill School but now at Gordano School, Portishead, flexes his muscles on sax, keyboard, guitar and vocals.
The Red Hat Horns
Martin Milnes – Claire Mitchell – Howard Rigby
In the Summer of 2014 Martin Milnes (Left) created a “bolt on” horn section with two other musicians, Claire Mitchell and Howard Rigby. This addition is a rare treat these days and has transformed the sound from action packed to sublime.
This talented band of musicians and performers provide a brilliant, mixed playlist which has wide appeal and they deliver every song with maximum energy and impact. Combined with some considerable humour and a strong storytelling element (enhanced by the use of various props and costumes!), they really hold the crowd’s attention and keep everyone dancing and begging for more.
