If you've been tuning into Haddenham's excellent local radio station Summerfest Radio over the last week or so, you are likely to have heard Alex Grout, one of the presenters, contributing his time and finely honed skills at the microphone.

It so happens that Alex also plays guitar with local band 'The Occasionals' and, if you went along to St Mary's Fest at the C of E School on Saturday 29th June, you will have enjoyed The Occasionals' gig.

As Alex has written in the Share & Chat section of this website:

"We are six middle aged men living in Haddenham (okay, one of us is a foreigner, living in Kingsey!) making music and having a lot of fun. We play your favourite songs from decades ago up to today's charts and are available for any parties — especially if they are in Haddenham as we can all stagger home afterwards. If you are interested find us on Facebook facebook.com/occasionals or via this site."
