Welcome to the Close to You website.
Close to You was an early number by Frank Sinatra and our drummer for the concert, Matt Skelton, has put together a concert around this single and others of Frank. Close to You is a concert that has toured Britain with Matt Ford as the soloist and we are very lucky that this now comes to the County Town of Kent – Maidstone. Many of the musicians performing are attached to the John Wilson Orchestra.
The concert is being staged as part of the mammoth fund raising effort required to repair and improve for the 21st century this lovely 14th Century church which is one of the finest examples of its particular architecture in the whole of the UK. Much is needed to replace the roof and repair the stonework tracings and surrounds to the wonderful stained glass windows as well as providing toilet facilities and the like.
I hope that you will support this concert and know that you will enjoy every minute of it!
