The Price Of Love – The Sneaky Little Band

The Price Of Love – The Sneaky Little Band

The Sneaky Little Band manages to play a wide variety of music genres because they have a good mix of instruments and vocals. After commencing with their title track The Price of Love, the band took us on a musical journey featuring each section. The three female singers (all in red) that fronted the ensemble, Caroline Fioravanti, Celine Daniel, and Helen Wheadon, did justice to the many songs they tackled, from such hits as Silly Love Songs, Sky High, Heart of Glass and Son of a Preacher Man to the lovely Landslide.

The brass section, consisting of Andrew Edgeworth and John Nicolson both on trumpet and flugelhorn and Nicole Molloy on saxophone, clarinet, and flute showed its colours in numbers needing more punch, like Love Shack, Got to Get You into My Life, Hooked on a Feeling, Rosana and more.

BJ Peake on the keyboard did double duty on vocals, showing his style in numbers like Oh What a Night, Signed Sealed Delivered, and others. Of course, all of this was expertly accompanied by Jeff Wojtiuk (lead guitar), Augustine Paul (bass), and Marty Holmes (drums). The group is completed with Lance Jones playing guitar and harmonica as well as vocals. Jones also provides narration for the evening.

The sound is good, or as good as you will get in the Prospect Town Hall – a hall whose acoustics were not designed for musical performances of this nature. In a varied selection of twenty-two songs, they covered many artists and provided a pleasant evening of music, with some fine performances. The girls finished off the evening with a great version of I Will Survive.
