Oxjam Beeston Takeover 2017, 19:00–19:40 Oldish Spice at The Star Inn
About Oldish Spice:
Eight male singers, one acoustic guitarist, sweet 50s 60s harmonies, regular crowd-pleaders, looking forward to our fourth year at Beeston Oxjam.
Already members of the brilliant West Bridgford Social Singers, some of the men's section narcissistically decided that the world wasn't hearing enough of their voices, and they didn't care if the world disagreed. So they met up one Wednesday night in the autumn of 2011 and sang "Dream". They sort of liked it and haven't really stopped singing since...
Having started by stealing slots in the concerts of the West Bridgford Social Singers (did we mention that they are excellent?) they went on to supporting a new community choir in Beeston (also excellent) and then onto gigs of their own. While they are now happy to sing to an empty rehearsal room if they can go to the pub afterwards, they also are happy to support charity events, sing at weddings or other celebrations, in pubs, clubs, festivals and, well, pretty much anything, really.
They cut their first album in January 2014 and their second will be available in autumn 2015. They start the world tour as soon as the millionth disc is sold.
