It all started in September 2000. Seven musical
hopefuls got together in someone's kitchen - and didn't sound
bad at their first attempt! Since then, we've delighted sun
scorched festival revellers and warmed the hearts of frozen
Christmas shoppers, lifted the feet of dancers by moonlight
and charmed the ears off old folk's clubs - then there's the
theatre variety shows, ceilidhs, parties...the list is in
crescendo...and so are our numbers! We like to keep it sociable
too. We've had our own parties, canoe trips, walks and
barbecues, and there's plenty more to come.
Ffonic's founding leader, Kitty Greenwood led the band for over 12 years, selecting our repertoire, writing our brilliant arrangements and giving our musical efforts help, enthusiasm and encouragement. She has left us with a fantastic foundation from which we are developing and building our own exciting ffonic future.
Whether you bang together two sticks or personally
taught Vanessa Mae, you are welcome to join us. Phone Geoff on 01686 626082.
You're welcome to watch us practice. Come along to the
Monty Club, Broad Street, Newtown, Powys. Wales - every Monday
evening 7:30 - 9:30.
We're here for the beer, not for the money and that's
good news for you, because we're more reasonably priced
than commercial bands. BUT! We're just as good and have
a selection of dance callers to choose from. We'd love to
add a bit of magic to your wedding, charity event, garden
party, or ceilidh dance. You can book us using our enquiry form
