STREETLIFE PLAY THE
KINGS HEAD in ROCHFORD
ON SATURDAY 22nd DECEMBER
KINGS HEAD ROCHFORD
The incomparable STREETLIFE played at The Kings Head in Rochford Square, Essex last Saturday night. A first for the band at this particular ale house which hosts live music at least 3 nights a week. Many thanks to Sandra the landlady for her hospitality and to all those that came to see the band , a small but perfectly formed audience.
After the first few songs the band were just getting into their stride when a fight broke out in the back bar. Inside information suggests it was a dispute concerning a young lady who had come to the pub with her boyfriend only to find that her boyfriends other girlfriend had popped in for a pint also. The landlord dealt swiftly with the situation and the trio were ejected from the pub where they continued their brawl in the Square.
Order was quickly restored and STREETLIFE played a few new songs as well as a lot of old ones and members of the public swung their hips and tapped their feet whilst drinking alcohol and singing simultaneously .....as did most of STREETLIFE. All in all a very successful evening.
A friend of the band with a nice camera and an eye for a good picture was on hand at the gig and hopefully took some of the gang in action which ,I will, with his permission , post here in the not too distant future.
oohhhh how about now!
Many thanks to Russel for taking the pictures and giving the band permission to use them on this website.
Rumour has it that the band are set to play the Kings Head again before Christmas . Keep your eyes peeled to the site and I will let you know about it as soon as I do.
Meanwhile... STREETLIFE are set to play The Lodge en route to Woodham Ferrers on Friday the 14th December.
This will be their final gig of 2012 and if previous gigs here are anything to go by this should be a great night.

THEY DID WELL IN CHIGWELL
STREETLIFE played at The Prince Regent in Chigwell last weekend. The event was a charity gala to raise money for The Royal Marsden Hospital.
Here's the story.........
Sam Cook fought a brave two year fight against ovarian cancer. She was just 25 years old when she lost her battle.
Whilst Sam fought her own battle, she organised fetes, sponsored walks and gala dinners to raise money and awareness. She continued with the charity work right up to the point she could no longer physically carry on due to her condition.
Her good work continues to this day with family and friends continuing her legacy.
This year to mark the tenth anniversary of Sam’s passing a celebrity gala dinner evening with music and entertainment has been organised in November, taking place in the banqueting suite of the Prince Regent Hotel Chigwell.
This was a fantastic evening and STREETLIFE were pleased and
proud to be part of it. Jonathan and Charlotte of ' Britains Got Talent'
fame opened the show , followed by a Frank Sinatra tribute act
through the meal and then STREETLIFE played until the end of the
Fantastic crowd who danced the night away and STREETLIFE
even managed a new song . well , new for them anyway
You Can't Hurry Love in the style of Phil Collins without the bald bits.
The band would like to thank Karen and Val for their hospitality and
Bacon rolls .
Jonathan and Charlotte were excellent as was the Frank /Dean tribute,
Streetlife did what they do best and kept everyone on the dance floor
and the staff at The Prince Regent were excellent.
All in all a top night.

WE RECKON'EM IN BECKENHAM
Congratulations to Tom and Collette on their wedding day. The venue looked
amazing and the guests were probably the liveliest bunch of revellers STREETLIFE
have had the pleasure of playing for this year. The Hog Roast was pigtastic despite
the caterer running out of rolls and the DJ played some great tunes before
STREETLIFE took to the stage. Special thanks to the Groom, Tom who, came up to
the microphone at the end of the party and thanked all of the band personally.
Much appreciated. Great night!
STREETLIFE GO BACK TO SCHOOL
Relaxing in the classroom which doubled as the bands
greenroom for the night, here are that finely
tuned bunch collectively known as STREETLIFE waiting
to go on stage at the Westcliff PTA end of summer ball.
Big thanks to Petra for looking after the band as always.
The Band played a great set and much dancing was
done by the revellers.
DON'T FORGET THAT THE BAND ARE
PLAYING AT THE KINGS HEAD
IN ROCHFORD SQUARE ON
SATURDAY 17TH NOVEMBER
STREETLIFE played The Tower last weekend to an audience that had
completed a triathlon only hours before. Luckily some of them still had the energy to dance .
The event raised over fifty thousand pounds for charity
with something like two hundred people taking part.
The band would like to thank the organisers for a lovely curry which was
served on their own table with all the guests. All in all very well looked after
Band trumpeteer and photographer Graham took a few pics of the band
which can be seen by clicking on the photo below.

END OF THE SUMMER
LATEST NEWS JUST IN
Okay I hold my hands up in submission. When I
was out having fun and enjoying my summer holiday I should have been at home updating the STREETLIFE
website. They have of course played a few gigs with new Bass player Warren , who by now isn't so new,
and I also have picture of the man himself to add to the gallery.
The Kings Head in Rochford, Essex. Map and details
This is new venue for the band and a bit closer to home. Hope to see you there.

OUT WITH A BANG
It was blowing a gale on the last gig of the year for STREETLIFE when they played at Rochford Hundred Golf Club to celebrate the wedding of Cat and Dan. The Bride and Groom looked repectively beautiful and handsome and a great night was had by all,
Darren, the bands bass player dropped a bombshell at the end of the evening to say that was leaving the band to pursue his first love- playing the guitar.
And so with heavy hearts the rest of STREETLIFE wished him well for Christmas and the New Year and waved him off through the mist that had suddenly sprung up.
Fortunately for the band another bassist who has played the set a few times steppped into the breach and after a couple of rehearsals is ready to do his thang!. You can see STREETLIFE perform with their new bass player , Warren, at The Lodge on Friday March 16th. Pics of Warren will appear on the site soon along with some revealing facts about the man himself.
NEXT PUBLIC GIG at The lodge on FRIDAy 16th March
IN the summertime when the weather is hot........
By Buster on 12th September 2011
Ok , so it wasn't that hot this summer.
The band played their penultimate August hols gig at Mikes 50th
at the end of July and the weather was amazing up there in Norfolk.
Guests of the party and the STREETLIFE crew all dressed up seventies
styley ( though there was a nod to the eighties dotted around the place) and everyone danced themselves dizzy in a gaudily decorated
marquee. No Party Sevens or Martini though. (if you have to ask what
they are then you are too young).
The band would like to say a big thank you to Mike for his hospitality
and to wish him well in his 50th year.
The bands fancy dress costumes were awe inspiring , some of the band actually thought Cliff was Don Johnson from Miami Vice.
Top outfit goes to Lyn , great dress, stunning boots and the wig and glasses finished it off nicely. Close runner up was JB with his 'Ronald Macdonald on amphetimines with Elvis glasses' look. Which actually
sounds like a first course in a Jamie Oliver restaurant.
Finally the band would also like to thank Paul for standing in on keys for this gig and also helping the rest of the band give Cliff some well deserved stick.
Here are some pics to give you a flavour of the night. You can see
some more HERE if you really want to .
Don Johnson or David Van Gay?
NEXT PUBLIC GIG AT THE LODGE on FRIDAY 15th JULY Free entry
Have to say that the PTA crowd know how to enjoy themselves and
the dance floor was rarely empty.
As you can see above the band were all ship shape and bristol fashion and the brass section didn't make a boob all night.
Big thanks to Charlie for the replacement speakers delivered at the last minute, a nice set of subwoofers make all the difference.
Next gig is at The Lodge on Friday 15th July. Go on you know you
want to. Entry is FREE and STREETLIFE start their first set at 9.30.
Although Manchester United lost to Barcelona on Saturday night,
STREETLIFE definitely scored well with the crowd at Blackmore
Village Fayre. After a slow start which the band attribute to the 62"
wide screen TV showing the game in the beer tent, things quickly speeded up in the second half of the evening with plenty of
audience participation and much dancing.
The band would particularly like to thank The Prince Albert public
house for their generous supply of the bands dinner served by their
gorgeous bar staff and to Pink Scaffolding for the excellent stage
and cover. Blackmore Village Fayre is a brilliant event and the band
hope that you ask them back next time .

Oh the okey cokeyBy Buster on 12th May 2011
In out ,in out you shake it all about .
After getting all excited about Paul joining the band it has come
to my attention that he has decided to leave again. Sadly with all
his other musical commitments joining STREETLIFE has proven
to be his undoing. The band are very busy this year and he just
can't fit it all in.
There are of course some members of the band who believe that
he resigned after finding out that he would have to stay until the end
of every gig and help pack away the PA :)
Matt is still on the case so you can see the band in all their glory
at The Blackmore Village Fayre on The Green on the evening of the
28th May DETAILS HERE . This is a lovely place with some proper
ale houses and hot food . As a bonus you get to see the wonderful
STREETLIFE in action. Come on down and join in the fun.
