Two words to best describe what Spunyboys music is all about would definitely be those on their record : Rockabilly Legacy. Formed in 2006 in northern France by the brothers Remi (Double bassist, singer) & Guillaume (drummer), the trio gets his definitive line up in 2011 when Eddie (guitar) join em. The Spunyboys use the same ol’ ingredients, such as Hillbilly music & 50’s RNB/Rock N Roll, to make that explosive cocktail called Rockabilly. The Spuny boat ain’t sailing only the Mississipi (New Orleans, Memphis, +Chicago) to get influenced, since he reach the River Thames, surrounded by british rockers too. That is why you can find some Cliff Richard / Crazy Cavan / Flying Saucers covers… in their set right after some Carl Perkins / Ronnie Dawson / Little Richard or Johnny Horton gems between Spuny songs.
Already 800 gigs in 2016, the Spunyboys spend most of their time on tour (through 15 countries in more than 300 cities). Fulfilling their dreams, sharing woods with their idols (from 50’s to 90’s) in their favorite rockNroll weekenders festivals such as Hemsby/Screamin’, Wildest Cat In Town or Viva Las Vegas in 2017!
The band was born and raised on stage through bars and festivals (everybody will get the feeling in their songs “Don’t Ring The Bell” or “Honey Hides The Bottle”), surrounded by wild rockers. That is why Spunyboys has to be approached first as a live experience. Three rockin’boys connected on the same motor called rock N roll share their passion with the audience and no one will be immune cause the Jive is infectious. Check their song : “Bop For Your Life”!
The frontman Remi hit the stage to wake you up and you may see him running behind you during the show while his partners set the woods on fire : “Trouble In Town” (“and the gang’s to blame!”)
We are hopeful that the March events will go ahead at Unity resort. However we do expect the next few weeks to be very difficult until the vaccine rollout gets going, with the country in lockdown. Therefore anyone not comfortable paying balance due in early January can defer until 23rd February, without incurring any late payment fees.
We are also hopeful that this event will take place and are in contact with the Guesthouse.
It also depends on the speed of the vaccine rollout. A final decision will be made by early March.
Events at Durrant Hotel and Unity resort for 2021 will go ahead as planned with a different schedule of entertainment (number of acts will not change).
Unity will feature a festival all-dayer style with bands at 2.30pm, 4.00 pm, 5.30pm, 7.00pm and 8.30pm.
Durrant Hotel will begin with evening meal at 6pm.
We have proved with our Elvis week at Hemsby that events CAN operate in the current climate very successfully.
If you do not wish to attend for ANY reason we have no legal obligation to transfer or refund deposits as the events WILL be going ahead.
We have spent six months transferring deposits and cancelling events and are not in a position to be as flexible as we would normally be, therefore transfers and refunds are NOT possible. Unless you can prove you were part of the original group advised to shield by the government in March, are infected with coronavirus at the time of the event, or are in a local lockdown area at the time of the event that doesn’t allow travel on holidays (most do). In these exceptional circumstances we will look at bookings on an individual basis.
As the 10pm curfew looks a mid-to-long term policy we will all have to learn to adapt and we are certain that our events will be a great success
Hopefully most sensible people will recognise this situation is not of our making and understand our decisions designed to protect the long term viability of our business and livelihoods of the professional musicians we employ.
The above is subject to change based on any government change in its policy.
