Tango in the Night is now in its 7th year, and makes a welcome return to the Arts Centre for 4 nights!
The band has evolved into the perfect Mac tribute, and all the main Mac characters are there, with the very welcome return of Esther Baker to the fold, she is literally the Stevie that Stevie Nicks would like to be and the reason I created the band in the first place!
With a sublime vocal quality that cannot be surpassed, Esther woos with Dreams and Rocks with Gold Dust! Bob Seymour is very well known and respected throughout Cornwall as a stand out solo artiste, but he joins us as our Peter Green and vocally absolutely nails it!
He trades the blues guitar licks superbly with myself and also plays session guitar and backing vocals throughout the show. Our Christine McVie for the last several years, Amy Bellis, has recently had to step down due to having her second child, and naturally enough, sadly could not commit to the rehearsal and performance schedule needed for a show like Tango. We all wish Amy the very best with her fabulous new family and maybe see her back sometime in the future! Fingers crossed!
And so, we welcome back Esther’s sister, the superbly talented Rachel MacDonald for this performance! Rachel last performed with us in 2012 and is a great keyboard player, singer and Christine McVie! Steve Yendell is our John McVie and another original member who works tirelessly to emulate John’s bass style and sound, he looks and plays the part so well! Steve has played in many bands in and around London and Sussex, and has been a London studio session player. Kev Dodd is our Main man Mick Fleetwood and a former decorated Royal Navy aircrew officer. His technical ability, style and feel and just plain enthusiasm for the drums is inspiring!
It may well be his military background that provides his obsession with getting things just right, but whatever it is he’s obviously the perfect man for the job! Our two lovely backing singers Kim and Yvette were part of a fabulous vocal harmony quartet who recorded in our studio over ten years ago, and have years of experience in harmonising, and it shows! Ritchard Jones is our great percussionist and has performed with us many times before and is one of the very best around! I’m Kenny Barnes and responsible for this lovely bunch, and I play the role of Lindsey Buckingham. I trained at the RNCM and also run the studio. John on Sound and Caroline on Lights make sure the whole show looks and sounds great!
