Our own top man Tommy Loose supported by two popular and
accomplished local musicians Amy Palmer and Mark Allington

Tommy Loose
Many of us have seen Tommy playing over the years and are constantly amazed at the quality of his music.  Whether it's his own material played on that special harp guitar or with metal band Smokescreen, you always know it is going to be first class entertainment with this multi-talented musician..

"Growing up in a musical family, Tommy has been surrounded by music his entire life. He started out tinkling on the piano at the age of four, progressed to the Tuba at age 11, and went onto the guitar at 13. Music has been his main passion now for over a decade, which has resulted in him becoming an accomplished musician, playing both solo and with various musical outfits all over the UK, as well as in Poland, France, Germany and Holland.

Tommy continues to play live gigs whenever he gets the opportunity, pursuing both his solo career and continuing his collaborative work. Tommy is also a dedicated music teacher, tutoring his student in a variety of instruments."

4th Labyrinth

4th Labyrinth live at the Elme on February 26th
A rocking treat for the ears and the eyes

4th Labyrinth started life as a group of musicians who became friends, long before the name appeared.  They create an energy that is hard to find in this world of manufactured bands and artificial stardom.  You‘ll find their music somewhere between Queen, ELO, The Beatles,Radiohead and The Foo Fighters.

A sound that goes back to basics, a bit like it used to be-but then again-not really...

Things don‘t always have to be reinvented.  If you hear a familiar sound, it‘s not because somebody said it sells, but because it sounds good. The band believes, selling records should be a result of but never the reason for making music. 

A melody, a message and sweet harmonies is all it takes.  It‘s right when it‘s beautiful, and beautiful it has to be!

Marcel - keyboards/vocals Marcel Kunkel (vox/keys) started playing the piano at the age of six and began singing in his early teens. Marcel has vast experience in almost anything that involves creating a record.  He has worked for many years as a professional live sound engineer working in almost every genre.  Now he takes the stage himself to see it all from the other side. John Harper guitar/vocals
John Harper (guitar/vox) has seen and experienced things that other guys in their mid-twenties only dream of.  That‘s what you hear when he plays the guitar. Mixing his influence into the sound of the band is what makes 4th Labyrinth rock or weep but, more importantly, it always makes it true.
Claudia McKenzie bass/voxClaudia McKenzie (bass/vox) is one of the most sought after bassists in the Cambridge area.  Her energetic and mesmerising stage presence never overshadows her amazing skills on the bass guitar.  Claudia has also
played on a number of records for others in all kinds of musical projects.
Tom Winch (drums)
Tom Winch (drums) is a well established musician on the Cambridge music scene.  Originally starting with piano from a young age he discovered the drums later in life. With the distinct advantage of being able to read score and already speaking the language of music, he soon mastered the new instrument to the point of teaching others.  Together with Claudia he provides the solid rhythmic backbone of 4th Labyrinth.
