Galeforce BandGaleforce : A force to be reckoned with.

Taking this meaning on-board the band have selected a repertoire of only the strongest hits that have, or are currently taking the world by storm.

Having moved on from “The Clowns” the musical force of the band Mark Gales and Chris Orr have joined forces with young drummer Simon Batley, who has the energy of a teenager combined with the touch of a seasoned professional, to create a great feel and sound on stage.

The Galeforce repertoire consists of a wide range of styles from early Blues/Soul and Rock and Roll through music’s evolution into Rock-Pop and R&B.

Suited to the most up tempo parties, bowling clubs or laid-back Sundays Galeforce are sure to blow you away.

“We concentrate on the songs and artists that really took the world by storm”
