Formed in the late 70’s, Nine Below Zero first made their mark in 1980, when they signed to A&M Records, released their debut album Live at The Marquee and headlined The Hammersmith Odeon supported by Jools Holland. The early 80s saw them gracing TV screens nationwide on iconic shows such as The Old Grey Whistle Test and The Southbank Show even appearing on thevery first episode of the ground-breaking comedy sitcom The Young Ones.
Over subsequent years and multiple releases the band supported the likes of Eric Clapton at Royal Albert Hall, Brian May, Chuck Berry, Bruce Foxton and Ray Davies and were signed by Sting and later Zed Records, featured on the soundtrack of the blockbuster movie Twelve Monkeys (which saw Bruce Willis perform with them on stage at the film launch) written albums with Nik Kershaw and played live with guests Glen Tilbrook and Alexis Korner.
Original members Dennis Greaves and Mark Feltham, today announce a Nine Below Zero acoustic tour and as DenMark release a Double LP of acoustic recordings.

In addition to joining The Rory Gallagher band and touring the world in the mid eighties he has recently worked with Jude Law on a stage play, teaching Jude the technique of playing the Harmonica and has played with a list of artists from George Michael to Nigel Kennedy.

This Grade I listed church, which dates from the mid 13th Century, overlooks the street in the centre of our village. The medieval architecture provides a spectacular backdrop to our musical events. The chancel contains an internationally famous collection of medieval brasses commemorating the de Cobham family.
The church is open daily during daylight hours and is well worth a visit in its own right together with the adjacent medieval College which was built by the de Cobham for the priests, who were appointed to say masses for the family members buried in the church.
