Lisa Simmons sat in for Bob Dainty on last week’s Tuesday Night Project and spoke with Claire from local Banbury band, The Uninvited ahead of their performance at Bodfest 2017, and Ian Keith a committee member and organiser of Bodfest.
Claire joined the band in 2002, and sits alongside Susan (vocals), Bungi (drums), Josie (guitar) and Paul (bass), having previously provided backing vocals for Brassed Off. From a young age, Claire was inspired by music, playing guitar and keyboard whilst growing up and her singing career expanded from here.
Now in its 17th year, Bodfest takes place over Radio Horton’s 53rd Birthday weekend, and Radio Horton will be compering in the main arena. Ian Keith described the hashtag #somethingforeveryone, promoting the fact that the festival is a family-oriented event, which is about more than just the music, with activities including touch rugby, bubble football, and go-karting.
