 Stroud, England, GBR
BandR&BFunk

The best band in Stroud and therefore THE WORLD!
Entertaining Classic Rock with delicious dance grooves.

Biography

I have written 6 CDs of original songs covering such genres as rock, pop, funk, soul, folk, blues, hip-hop, religious.

The band boasts the cream of the musicians community in Stroud, which itself is a well-know musical magnet for all kinds of performers. All the guys (and girl) have been performing musicians for many years and are still in a number of other bands being as they are in such demand.

The over-riding aim of the band is to entertain, it is not to impress, amaze, provoke or any other ego-driven motivation. We do this by writing and performing songs which people want to dance and sing to.

Lyrics

The SIgns

Written By: M. McSweeney

AND YOU DO IT TO ME
AND SHE DOES IT TO HIM
AND THEY DO IT TO US
BREAKING OUR HEARTS ‘TIL WE ALL FALL DOWN
SLAMMING THE DOOR AND RUNNING INTO TOWN.

NEW TO ME BUT WHEN THEY MEET
HUGGING EACH OTHER IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET
SEE MY FRIENDS LIFT UP MY DOWN
STRAIGHTEN ME UP WHEN I’M SPINNING AROUND
JUMP FOR JOY WHEN I HEAQR THEIR SOUND

SO BIG IN MY LIFE ARE THE FRIENDS THAT STICK AROUND
THROUGHOUT THE YEARS IN THIS SMALL TOWN
IT’S THE TREACLE MADE OF SEA
THO’ IT’S WHAT YOU MEAN TO ME THAT COUNTS.

LIFE TAKES ME HERE AND TAKES ME THERE
SPITS IN MY EYE AND PULLS MY HAIR
SMILES AT ME AND SLAPS ME ON THE BACK
GIVES ME A KISS THEN GIVES ME A WHACK
I’VE SEEN THE SIGNS ‘COS I’VE HAD MY SHARE.

SO BIG IN MY LIFE ARE THE FRIENDS THAT STICK AROUND
THROUGHOUT THE YEARS IN THIS SMALL TOWN
ACROSS THE JOY THE FUN THE STRIFE
THAT SEVENTH WAVE COMES OVER ME
IT’S THE TREACLE MADE OF SEA
THO’ IT’S WHAT YOU MEAN TO ME THAT COUNTS.
