Story / Media: During the first National lockdown 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.

Into the Sun were great and the responses from Rob were honest and accurate. The "collective" is a good business model, but does leave uncertainty as to who may be fronting the band. We did however have a few choices presented to us as Rob was already booked on the date we needed. The support and feedback from Sam was also honest and responsive, although most of the answers we needed had to come from Rob, so this additional line of comms was a little frustrating at times but understandable. All in all, the service provided by Sam and Encore was excellent and Into the Sun were top notch and we hope the band enjoyed the venue, booze and food provided on the night. We are happy to recommend Encore and Into the Sun for any future event, they were a big hit on the night! thank you.

We attended a 60th birthday party on Saturday 8th July at Thorpeness Country club, the band for the event was Into the Sun. The evening was a great success, the band were superb they had a great set list and had asked for a list beforehand of songs people wanted which was really good. They instantly get the ‘crowd’ going and the dance floor was filled, this was then the situation for the whole night. They kept signing hit after hit – the actual band performance was superb. A thoroughly enjoyable night I can not recommend this band enough, my dancing shoes were well and truly exhausted by the end of the night.
