a Musical Mélange at Dilton Memorial Hall

Story posted on

A true Musical Mélange will be held at Dilton Memorial Hall on Saturday 16th March at 7.30pm. Three live bands,  each delivering a very different style of music, will provide something for every musical taste. 

First up on the evening are Coyote Country who, as the name implies, share a passion for country music and with their easy-going style will be playing a mix of traditional and modern country music, blended with country rock and bluegrass.

Following a short interlude, The MilesTones will hit the stage. They are an eclectic group of individuals delivering an equally eclectic collection of songs from rock to punk. Their moto? “Get Up and Dance.”

Headlining the event are Jook Joint, a trio of highly experienced musicians, who will be playing mainly bluesy and country rock material, with versions of great old blues songs from the golden era; driving drums, robust bass guitar, fervent vocals and silky slide guitar!

One thing each of the bands has in common, other than a passion for live music, is they are made up of local performers, four from the village of Dilton Marsh itself.

The event takes place on Saturday 16th March with doors at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced at just £7.50 and will be available on the door or can be purchased in advance from Crowning Glory in the village. A bar serving wine, cider, beer, lager and soft drinks will be available on the night. 

Organisers say, “The hall trustees, the 13 band members, the sound engineer and the many volunteers who are working towards delivering a first class night of musical entertainment, look forward to welcoming you.

“Dilton Memorial Hall, built in 1921, provides a community hub to the fine people of Dilton Marsh and the surrounding villages. Its facilities provide a welcoming environment for an incredibly diverse range of activities. “
