[WAM] Exposure Week 81 (18/02/21) ( click here if the below audio button doesn’t work)

Welcome to [WAM] Exposure, five years after the tragic loss of the band Viola Beach, comprising of Kris Leonard, Jack Dakin, River Reeves, Tomas Lowe and their manager, Craig Tarry, we pay tribute to the boys that sing with a playback of their self-titled number 1 album, released on 29 July 2016.

After the album got to number one, the families of the band said: “The tragic circumstance that met Viola Beach and their manager Craig that fateful night in Sweden will not now define their lives. What will now define their lives and what they will be remembered for, forever, is the music they were so passionate about making together. For that, we will be eternally humbled and ever thankful to every single person who, by buying this glorious album, has invested in their lasting musical legacy.”

It was an absolute honour to do this show and it’s evident from the tracks we played that they were a band with some amazing talent. That is why we got a dozen musicians together from the town to record our cover of ‘Swings and Waterslides.
