Ely band For The Hornets played their first gig in over a year following the Covid-19 lockdowns.

The socially-distanced, reduced-numbers concert took place on Saturday night (June 26) at the Ex-Servicemens club in Cambridge.

Bass player Lee said: “It was amazing to be on stage again, even though the audience had to stay seated it was the first time they’d heard full-volume live music in over a year too.”

The band, who have played at both Ely Pride events, have just released their new single ‘All The Worlds A Stage'. It is available via Spotify, iTunes and Amazon.

The track was so well-received there have been three remixes released since, featuring guest vocalists, a dubstep remix, and a recording with a 96-piece orchestra.
