About the artist

Many of you will have been to a gig by the fabulous Gill Love Band, 7 dedicated musicians singing and playing their hearts out.

Over the last 8 years they have entertained the good citizens of this area in places like South Hill Park, the Cordes Hall, All Souls Church, the Memorial Hall in Holyport and many pubs and clubs.

After being a Member of the Sunningdale Savoy Chorus, Gill joined the South Hill Park Jazz Group as a vocalist, with her husband Tony on guitar, where they met the rest of the band. They started off by just jamming at home for the fun of it, and then in September 2014, to celebrate husband Tony’s big birthday, they hired Jagz (by Ascot Railway Station), where they played a 45 minute gig for 110 invited guests. The wheel had turned and they were transformed into a semi-professional band! They needed a name; initially they were called ‘Love& Us’, but somehow it didn’t seem to fit, so they became ‘The Gill Love Band’, much more straightforward!

Their first charity gig was for the British Lung Foundation at Cordes Hall in front of 120 people; and from that time on they decided that they would concentrate on playing for charity. They have performed for many high profile charity events, including a black tie evening for the Lions Club at The Windsor Racecourse helping to raise £6,500 for the Thames Valley Hospice, at Cordes Hall again for Mercy Ships and Youthline (I was there! It was brilliant!). Charities which have also benefited have been MIND, the local Air Ambulance, Thames Valley Adventure Playground, The Hope Trust, Inner Wheel Club of Ascot and the Rotary Club of Ascot. In all, in that short space of time, they have raised over £20,000 for charity.

The star of the show (although she disputes this) is vocalist Gill Love, a former BA Executive and a local Sunninghill resident of over 40 years; also in the band is Gill’s husband Tony, who taught at Charters School, and is heavily involved in the Rotary Young Musicians Competition. The other members are Christine (Tenor Sax), Barry (Lead Guitar), David (Tenor & Soprano Sax) and token Geordie, Roger (Bass) and last but not least Andrew Last (percussion).

The Gill Love Band is hoping to enlarge their engagement list, going forward, and would be happy to play for Functions, Parties (even after-lockdown parties) Lunchtime Jazz, providing a range of music, from dinner jazz to dance tunes. So do call Gill on 07845161342 or email thegillloveband@gmail.com if you have a private event in the offing. She tells me that they have their own sound system and lighting, full in-house technical support, and that everything is PAT tested. They have over 100 songs in their repertoire and play an eclectic mix of Jazz, Blues and Popular Music.
