Since their debut performance in November, it's been a busy month of gigs for Composed band, No Idea.
The band performed a couple of songs at the weekly open mic session at Canterbury’s Black Griffin on 7th December. They performed with such confidence that you would never have guessed it was only their second performance. It takes a lot of courage to get up and sing your own songs in front of a pub-load of people at an open mic night, but this did not phase Harriet and Rebecca one bit as they delivered “She’s in Denial” and “Summertime is Here”. They were ably backed by Frank on drums, Naomi on mandolin, Yiannis on acoustic guitar and Nelly on percussion. Nelly provided some great dancing throughout which highlighted just how much they were all enjoying themselves. Afterwards, one person in the audience described it as “a beautiful moment”!
No Idea have been a very busy young band. On Monday 11th December they were invited along to St. Nicholas School in Canterbury to perform a set for the students at the school as part St. Nicholas’s end of term Christmas celebrations. Harriet, Rebecca and Frank, accompanied by Yiannis on guitar, played to their largest crowd yet and had everyone cheering and swaying from start to finish.
Arguably, the biggest cheer came when Frank decided to seize the moment with a spontaneous drum solo which he performed with such energy that, for a while, it seemed like the spirit of Keith Moon had taken the stage! Isabelle Walsh (Frank’s Mum) said “The concert was super! Frank is gaining so much confidence and wellbeing from music”. Expect to hear a lot more from No Idea in the new year!
