The Happy Maureens THE HAPPY MAUREENS (band)

I joined this fledging band of rockers in late December 2017 and we've already got a few gigs under our belt in Hastings and Bexhill (East Sussex). The Happy Maureens cover good-vibes classic rock songs - a typical set list includes: Summer of '69 (Bryan Adams), House of the Rising Sun (The Animals), Valerie (The Zutons), Proud Mary (Tina Turner), Black Velvet (Alannah Myles), Coz I Luv You (Slade), Roadhouse Blues (The Doors), Addicted to Love (Robert Palmer), Whole Lotta Rosie (AC/DC), Gimme Some Lovin' (Spencer Davies Group) and Rockin' in the Free World (Neil Young).

Danse Macabre DANSE MACABRE (band)

DANSE MACABRE was an earlier foray into live music, this time playing mainly original songs. The band took its own brand of folk-rock, halloween-pop cabaret around London and beyond, including sets at the 2008, 2009 and 2010 Worcester Music Festival. The Danse Macabre Archives page has a brief history, some photographs and more...


The Carlisle pub in Hastings, down on Pelham Beach seafront near the town centre, is a well-known rock venue in this damn fine town in East Sussex. I mention it here as you'll usually find me there every other Wednesday evening at the pub's classic rock and blues jam night, playing bass (often badly) with a friendly bunch of local musicians. If you're in the area and fancy a jam, come along (check the Facebook page for dates)... Steph.

The Cheese Factory THE CHEESE FACTORY (band)

THE CHEESE FACTORY is a small but perfectly-formed covers band, playing party pop, soul and rock tunes, from classic tunes of the 1960s to current hits. Gigs happen now and again whenever the feeling takes us or when someone comes along and asks us to play. If you're interested, The Cheese Factory page has a sample set list and contact information.


Prozakville Records is very much a home-based cottage industry to distribute DANSE MACABRE recordings, using a MacBook, a pile of printable CD-ROMs and a lot of trial and error! Titles available from the Prozakville Records Shop include DANSE MACABRE's The Golden Age Of Ballooning (EP) and Worcestershire Sauce (CD single).


KILLER SQUIRRELS: THE OPERA by Steph Bennion and Sarah Taylor
A horror comedy musical inspired by the Danse Macabre song Killer Squirrels, set in Baird's television studio in Crystal Palace Park, South London, November 1936. Strange creatures roam in the night, the mutant creations of the megalomaniac Doctor Drey who plans to use an army of killer squirrels to hold the world to ransom. However, she is not the only one with devious deeds afoot: a musichall star is stealing Baird's secrets for the BBC, an agent from the RSPCA is also on Drey's case and even Drey's own henchwoman Zelda is out for revenge...
