    Description: ICONS - Concert 1

    ICONS, concert 1

    The first night of two consecutive concerts at St Georges, which we now hope is standard for our annual gigs.  This year's theme was LGBT Icons, where we paid tribute to our favourite singers, songwriters and human rights advocates.

    Although not quite a sellout, the audience was as enthiusiastic as ever and cheered every song.  

    We opened with the haunting Stevie Wonder classic, 'They Won't Go When I Go', also covered by our first Icon George Michael, with Bashema singing the solo.  With our sharpest moves to date and complex harmonies on many of the songs, this was our most challenging performance, but judging by the audience reaction, we nailed it.
