The WTF Band


The WTF band is the working title for a collective of over 10 outstanding musicians from around the UK, and are a bit like a box of chocolates - you are never quite sure which ones you are going to get! Musically however, you can be guaranteed to see a stellar line up, producing fantastic classic and not so classic tunes. For Chesil Rocks this year, the line up will be made up of the following possibles - Lee Worsley on drums, Steve Wilson on bass and vocals, Mick Taylor (former editor of Guitarist Magazine) strangely enough on guitar and Robbie McIntosh (former member of the Pretenders) on guitar and vocals.

The London Gay Men's Chorus




Seren are a country/folk duo who play a mixture of their own original songs with a few memorable covers performed in their own unique style.

Kerrie and Simon have worked together for over 20 years, in local band The Dolmen, and some conceptual music with Taloch before forming folk trio Coppertongue.

Seren is a newer venture, and they have added a slightly country style to their music.

Kerrie is the vocalist, guitarist and flute player, whose songwriting skills and melodic voice give Seren their unique sound.

Simon plays bass, a beat box and backing vocals and has brought some songwriting ideas to the music.

Portesham Ukulele Band

In November 2013, a Ukulele club started at the Kings Arms in Portesham, hosted by Lucy Brodle and with just half a dozen attendees at their first meeting.

With some complete beginners, and a number of more experienced players, the club has steadily grown under Lucy's superb tutelage and on occasions has had more than 30 players in attendance. The band are keen to emphasise any perceived ink between the initials of the band and the location of where they meet weekly, is entirely coincidental.

Members of the group opened Chesil Rocks in 2014, played again in 2015 and this year have moved up the order!

Catch them in the marquee during the evening.
