The Chevrons are a six piece soul blues band who rehearse in Bishops Stortford but play awesome soul tracks that you didn’t know you knew… at gigs you’ll be talking about for a long time.
They originally formed in 2014, with Kev singing and on guitar, Sean on drums and Graham on bass. Kev was probably born holding a guitar has never stopped playing, though he used to do the rock thing. Personally we think he suits soul better, even if he does have to wear a suit and cover those tattoo sleeves. Sean and Graham used to be in bands in their previous lives BC (before child). Graham with very girly hair by all accounts and Sean back in his home hemisphere of New Zealand but had both had hiatus’ of about 15 years before playing again with The Chevrons (“mind the gap”).
Dawn joined on the saxophone in January 2015 kind of by accident after a lot of haranguing by Kev (a mutual friend had mentioned she played….or used to 15 years ago, “mind the gap #2”). We did wonder at one point whether the band should be renamed to something like ‘It’s been 15 yrs’….but ‘The Chevrons’ works, even it was Sean and Graham’s brainchild, so we thought maybe we’d stick with it.
…now we have the wonderful (and apparently very good looking!) Chris on trumpet, the amazing Rose blasting out the female vocals and – even better – the fabulous Rachel has joined us here and there, so we can now make claim to being a 6/7 PIECE LIVE BAND!
Expect songs from James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding, Jimi Hendrix, Sam & Dave, Ike and Tina Turner, Janis Joplin, Ray Charles, Little Richard, Rolling Stones (…the list goes on but we don’t want to make your head explode) played loud, proud and the way they should be.
Plans for the next 12 months?
