Following the most recent government guidelines we have decided to postpone TRUNCH CONCERTS
The safety of everyone who visits TRUNCH CONCERTS is of paramount importance and as a team we stand firm in our support of all efforts to combat COVID-19/Coronavirus. In light of the advice to the public issued by the government on Monday 16th March it is with regret that we announce that planned performances at St Botolph’s Church in Trunch and St Nicholas Church in Swafield will not take place until further notice. There will be no concerts on Saturday 25th April (The Mynx Soul Band) and Saturday 16th May (The Roy Abrams Memorial Concert) but we will keep you posted on future events. We hope everyone stays well and hope to see you all soon.
The Mynx Soul Band
1960’s Memphis Soul Music
The wonderful 9 piece soul band will be opening the 2020 season of TRUNCH CONCERTS, playing 1960’s Memphis Soul hits, with some Blues and MoTown, as recorded by artists including Otis Redding, The Drifters, Etta James, Tina Turner, Sam & Dave, Eddie Floyd and Wilson Pickett. The Mynx Soul Band band traces its origins back to the late 1960’s when six friends were in a successful band in Essex playing Soul Music. The band had to disband for reasons including going to University and studying for professional qualifications. Over the years the members of the band lost touch with one another, but about seven years ago one of the members initiated a successful search for the other five original members. Two of these had emigrated (one to Jamaica and one to Australia), but the other four original members (John Lane, Derek Haynes, Jonathan George and John Orley) were reunited, and five younger members joined the reformed band.
