Drive 23rd - 27th

Er....going back a few weeks (where does the time go?) to look at who came in on Drive and we're just speaking to too many big names now - among them Camilla Kerslake the new classical star, who has - quite amazingly a voice of 4 octaves - with a register so high it's half an octave higher than the highest note ever written for the human voice! Camilla's new songs including "How Can I keep from singing?" - (the one off the Waitrose xmas ad). She's also covered Take That's Rule the World which is now on the Phoenix A list. She was very nice to speak to about how she got going in the business and how Gary Barlow signed her to his label. She's on TV a lot now of course quite rightly - but you heard her first on Phoenix! Kind of. To check out more of her go to www.myspace.com/camillakerslake

Also spoke to a good friend of Phoenix Mark Reed about BASLE - the association making sure that licenced establishments in Brentwood all work together to stop alcohol-related trouble - Sainsbury's has now joined in with the scheme which is great as it means if you're barred from a pub you can't go to the supermaket and get your alcohol there instead - or theoretically anything else - making sure Brentwood - which looks better and better with the new High Street - keeps its reputation as somewhere to go which offers something different.

Mark also popped in with the cast of the Twits wearing his other "hat" of the Brentwood Theatre - and it was great to speak to them all - they all agreed it was a brilliant story and play - borne out by the fact it's now the theatre's most successful production. Keep listening for our special offers on tickets - and info on how to book is on the events guide as always.
