Strong Medicine all met up when playing with the Norman Roy Big Band about 5 years ago. All having a lifetime of experience in a huge variety of genre, and love a good laugh. They always arrange our material in their flavour, including songs from 1920-2018, to get that sassy jazz vibe. Loving a good costume and Thomas does his acrobatic bass climbing thing.
They try to have a little something for everyone…and are looking forward to a rerun of the Roaring 20s!!! Alison sang in competitions as a child, with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic for 7 years, and has fronted a number of long lasting band line ups, including The Final Nails (Americana), The Third Man/ceilidh band, as half a folk duo who ran and hosted a number of folk clubs, and Strong Medicine.
Alison also composes and arranges music for theatre productions, including Much Aado About Nothing, As you Like it and Of mice and Men.
Alison loves singing and dressing up! Thomas, her German husband, is in love with his Double Bass, which he has been playing since he was 11. His background is mainly in Rockabilly, including 2 years touring with The Brian Setzer Orchestra, and later with The Dick Brave project which was a rockabilly musical.
He has played in big bands and currently also plays with The Cheesecutters and The Swinging Bricks who are signed to Raucous Records. Dennis is a wonderful guitar player and a good laugh! Past credits include Farrons Flamingos, Abba now, Norman Roy Big Band, and his solo act Just Dennis.
Always rehearses hard and never misses a trick. Strong Medicine provide sound and lighting, costume and Bass acrobatics and walkabout. God Bless radio Mics!
