The Entertainers

The Entertainers

The Entertainers is a new group being formed within U3A Vall del Pop with a mission to perform classic pop ballads and up-tempo hit songs that you all know (unless you have lived your entire life in Outer Mongolia), with a special emphasis on fun, entertainment and audience participation.

We currently have a line-up of seven main singers, with room for expansion at some of the bigger venues where there is room to include new members who have the itch to sing and move to irresistible melodies and rhythms ... from Latin to Rock to waltz-tempo Ballads.

Our musical director is David Rohl, who has worked in the music industry for over fifty years, starting in local bands in his teenage years, going on to become a recording engineer and, eventually, a top-flight record producer working for George Martin’s Air Producers Group. David records The Entertainers backing tracks in his home studio for our group to sing to. The objective is to perform great singalong numbers and, at the same time, to do so with lots of energy ... and a smattering of humour.

Our repertoire caters for a generation which grew up in the 1960s and 70s and is very much influenced by the music of that era. The primary aim is to entertain that generation with songs they are familiar with and which they can join in or dance to. But we also tackle some of the classic songs from the later decades – even tracks released as late as 2017!

The Entertainers is already in high demand to perform at charity events in Jalon Valley, even though we are only a few weeks in the making. We also intend to perform at U3A events such as assembly meetings and the annual Christmas meeting.

If you enjoy singing and would like to join us, we are forming a choir to support the front-line singers. No need to be pitch-perfect ... just sing the main melodies and move to the beat (no statues required!).  We charge €2 per session to help with the costs of equipment and general maintenance.
