Hear the Music
Crimson Shadow perform well-known pop and soft rock covers from the '60s to the present day. We are based around Cambridgeshire, Essex and Hertfordshire but are willing to travel to other areas for special events. We play at charity functions, fund-raising events, corporate entertainment, weddings, private parties, pubs and clubs.
We have been in existence in one form or another for over 25 years. It all started with a local fete in Widdington, Essex, back in 1995. The band was formed from local residents and friends and named Velcro Elk (not sure why)! After what proved to be a great success we decided to carry on and the band was renamed Crimson Shadow (as we always did cover versions of songs by prog rock band King Crimson - google them, they are still going)!
Fast forward 25 years and we are now a six piece band doing all sorts of popular covers, from the 60's onwards. They say that nothing worth doing is easy, so we rehearse regularly at Fairycroft House in Saffron Walden which is a fantastic Arts and Media centre run by musician Tim Atkinson. Practice makes perfect they say, so we keep practising!
We perform at private parties, public events, pubs, clubs and charity/fund raising events. Despite being a six piece band we have played in living rooms right through to large stages, so location is not a problem!
Over the years we have performed at many charity functions. Just a few of those are listed here.
