The Noel’s Arms: ‘Tara Simms’ 4pm

 ‘Tara Simms’ from her background of touring with show bands and tribute shows at holiday parks and Royal Caribbean cruise lines, now gigs every weekend somewhere in the East Midlands. Sunday, as part of the Sunday-Funday, She’ll be playing a good mixture of rock and pop covers, everything from Bon Jovi to Dolly Parton.

Tara brings with her a wealth of experience as a performer – appearing with numerous show and tribute bands over the last 15 years in the UK and Internationally. More recently turning her attention to solo performing, utilising both her vocal and guitar skills to deliver both ‘Live Lounge’ style sets and full electric party sets with quality backing tracks for audiences throughout the UK. Covering popular songs from the 50‘s to present day – everything from The Beatles to Lady GaGa. Tara loves to involve her audience, using her warm and humorous style to ensure everyone becomes a vital part of the entertainment.

I’m often asked for recommendations for acts, and solo musicians. I booked Tara myself for my 50th Birthday party a few years back now. So hopefully that is recommendation enough that you should check her out.

Is it Sunday Yet? (PW)
