A MUSICIAN who runs an open mike night at the Lord Eldon is to support Elton John at the singer’s New Year’s Eve party.

Guitarist David Boardman, 35, and his band Sealife will play on the same bill as the pop legend in front of 20,000 people at London’s O2 Arena.

“I thought it was a joke at first,” he said.

“It’s pretty hard to take in. Elton John’s such a massive name and I’ve personally been a fan of his for years.”

Sealife, formed in the autumn, have played five gigs in London and their performances were enough to convince the management company that they could support Elton John, who has enjoyed more than 50 top 40 hits.

“He’s not been to see us, although apparently he likes the music and he’s been taking a keen interest in what we’ve been doing,” said Mr Boardman.

“Our music is very anthemic. It sounds like the sort of music that should be played in an arena so it ought to sound good.”

Sealife already have 5,200 friends on social networking site Myspace, and they will play at a music festival in America in March.

Sealife EP (iTunes USA)



Songs that touch the soul, aching melodies delivered by a voice that bears all the hope and melancholy of a man who once played 300 funerals in five months as a crematorium organist.

Like a harder-edged Doves who've poached a hungover Tim Booth from James, soaring Bunnymen guitars glue themsleves to insistent rhythms. Words that speak to everyone that finds hope within adversity, floating on tunes which stick in the mind long after you first hear them.
