Story / Media: During the first National lockdown in March 2020, a group of talented musicians and teachers from Essex, Suffolk and London collaborated to create the #LockdownCovers project, which was released online over the summer months. Rob Radley and Karl Younger coordinated the initial project to help promote the cause #LetMusicPlay and support the industry at a difficult time. The final video of the #LockdownCovers series signals the start of another nationwide lockdown. We would like to showcase the hard work that went into this cover version by promoting it to the wider public and supporting the fantastic charity YoungMinds.

We had in to the sun play at a 40th birthday party and they were FANTASTIC! Everybody had a wonderful time and they were brilliant with reading the crowd! My father in law even got up to sing with them and they all took it in their stride! Would definitely recommend and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again. Luan
