Kel Elliott & Her Three Man Orchestra. The ‘Truth and Tall Tales’ Tour – great music, songs and fun.

Kel Elliott & Her Three Man Orchestra are a joy to listen to and true crowd-pleasers who guarantee an evening of great entertainment with their friendly fun and frolics.

Kel Elliott is a sassy double-bass playing singer who likes to tell stories: her own and other people’s. She spends a lot of time striking up conversations, and whenever she can, records them, turning the bits that inspire her most into songs. She then hammers or rather plucks them out on stage with humour, irony and a touch of mischief. The audience describe her performances as a journey of emotion, many laugh and a few tears shed, all within the space of a few minutes. Others describe it as a ‘Drama for the ears’. The band’s sound is varied and cleverly tailored to suit each song, allowing the lyrics to speak for themselves.

Joining Kel is song-writing partner Kelvin and two new multi-instrumentalists, Hugh (Kel’s hugely talented husband and inventor of the plastic trombone) and Adam (woodwind maestro for the Royal Shakespeare Company).

To match Kel’s velvety vocals and trademark double bass, this new show features an impressive range of instruments, from melodica and bass clarinet, to sousaphone, saxophone, accordion, ukulele and percussion.

This is very much a gig for grown ups and mature youngsters; great music with universal appeal from a fantastic band!

Following them on Facebook and social media is a good way to tap into the younger members of our community.
