If you plan to spend this weekend taking it easy, spare a thought for busy musician Chris Wong.
Not only will Chris be performing with Toyah and the Humans at Chatham on Sunday, but before that he will be multi-tasking on drums and percussion with blues and rockabilly trio Scarlett Rae and the Cherry Reds in Broadstairs on Friday, April 17.
Chris is mainly known as Toyah’s guitarist/bassist but, in this latter line up, he and frontwoman Andeecorr Price, otherwise known as Scarlett, form the driving rhythm section.
Neither is talented Chris any stranger to the world of theatre: for the more than 17 years he has been musical director for the Marlowe Theatre pantomime in Canterbury and, in addition to conducting other shows, he has toured as a guitarist/bassist on a number of other shows including Joseph, Grease and Hot Shoe Shuffle.
On Friday he will perform alongside Andee and Scarlett and the Cherry Reds’ third member, Dudley Ross.
The band’s gig at the Wrotham Arms in Broadstairs is free. Music starts at 9pm.
