Dan Sealey joins his father to recreate the music of Cosmotheka
Dave Sealey, the remaining member of the renowned music hall duo, Cosmotheka, is joining forces with his son, Dan to recreate some of the old musical mayhem for which the original duo was so famous.
Dan Sealey, having grown up with the songs, has his own take on the material. An accomplished professional musician, as bass player with the rock group Ocean Colour Scene, he is no stranger to the big stage. You can hear Dan's own music here on his MySpace page.
Dan's guitar skills and dry wit introduce a compelling new dimension to the collaboration. As instigator of the new venture, Dan is determined to drag his crusty, ancient, musical relic of a father shouting and bawling into the twenty-first century. So far, he's winning hands down. What on earth would Harry Champion say?
Dan & Dave will be performing "a lot of the old songs, with a new twist" at several venues and festivals across the summer of 2010. Visit the Gigs page to see where you can find them.
After a highly successful performance at Cookhill Village Hall (a popular venue in Dave & Al's day) on 2nd July, a short video of clips from the performance has been created by MPL Productions. Click here to have a look - and watch this space for more footage soon.
