What was once a group of marines, who happened to be musicians, has now become the increasingly successful ALPHA CONNECTION.
Nine years ago four Royal Marine musicians formed a band called ALPHA CONNECTION and performed at the odd holiday camp and at a few dinner dances in and around Portsmouth. Soon after they added the brass section to the band, completing the current line up of ALPHA CONNECTION.
ALPHA CONNECTION took the initial gamble to leave the Royal Marines and there after steadily built up a reputation for quality and reliability. Now as a fully professional seven-piece unit, ALPHA CONNECTION has achieved international acclaim as one of the most exciting and fresh new show bands to emerge from the UK, having performed at over 2000 venues worldwide and covering some 500 thousand miles in the process.
Nine years on ALPHA CONNECTIONS date book contains more famous London hotels than a visiting oil sheikh. Such is the bands reputation, ALPHA CONNECTION now plays more that 200 gigs a year and turns down just as many. Much of their work includes major corporate functions, society events and balls such as the Water Rats Ball, Henley Regatta Ball, the Conservative Party Ball and the Variety Club of Great Britain. Premier league football clubs like Manchester United, Arsenal and Blackburn Rovers have also caught on to the bands mass appeal.
ALPHA CONNECTION has also performed at numerous Royal occasions in front of the Queen, the Queen Mother, Prince Charles, the late Princess Diana and the Princess Royal. They have also appeared several times on T.V over the past nine years including the last four series of "Jim Davidson's Generation Game".
More recently the band has got together with an expert production team from London's West End Theatres and put together an unbeatable combination of classic party music, slick staging, dazzling costumes and high energy dance routines in a ground breaking show that exceeds all expectations with a band of this kind.
ALPHA CONNECTION are a highly entertaining and visual band who have the talent to satisfy a wide cross section of the public, and a musical repertoire so diverse they are able to perform music that covers at least five decades, from fifties swing to todays club dance music.
