The billy thompson band
After reaching the final of the Young Jazz Musician of the Year competitions in both ‘96 & ’98, Billy became an integral member of seminal English Jazz/Rock outfit Barbara Thompson’s Paraphernalia with Jon Hiseman on drums. Billy has headlined twice at Ronnie Scott’s with Paraphernalia and toured Europe extensively featuring on 5 albums. 2008 also saw a tour of Japan with these incredible musicians. Comprising of Billy on Violin, Ivor Aldred on harmonica, Neil Browning guitar and accordian, Eryl Jones on guitar, mandolin and vocals and Greg Robley on bass, the Billy Thompson Band are thought of locally as being the foremost gypsy swing band in Wales, if not the UK. Having first performed at Mach 1 and after a 5 year break, it's a huge pleasure to have them back at BIG Mach.

What they say
"Our Mission is quite simply to make people dance and laugh! If you leave a Shamus gig dripping in sweat & a huge grin on your face we consider it job done!"
Professional musicians Charlie James (guitar) and Sharon Chloe (violin) formed The Dorchester Duo in 2008 after meeting at a live music event; one of our first performances was in the stunning Dorchester Abbey in Oxfordshire – hence the name – and in the intervening years we’ve gone on to perform at festivals, concerts, corporate events, private parties and weddings throughout the UK. Classically trained, we share a love of all genres of music, combining classical pieces with rock and heavy metal, and our repertoire includes songs by Metallica, The Manic Street Preachers, U2, Shinedown, Led Zeppelin and others, which adapt well to violin and guitar. We perform on electro-acoustic instruments which enable the unique sonorous beauty of the violin and guitar to be heard at an arena-sized volume!
