Thunderball. Originally a hit for Tom Jones in the film of the same name. Thunderball (1965) is the fourth spy film in the James Bond series starring Sean Connery as the fictional MI6 agent James Bond too.
Well this is a particular favourite of our James Bond Tribute Band as it is sung so wonderfully well by our male vocalist Gavin. And that note at the end? Wowzers
Gavin has the smoothest, suavest approach to singing – his voice is like melted chocolate it’s THAT smooth! The way he phrases any line is so beautifully and skillfully done. Thunderball is a powerful and strong number and at the end is THE longest note ever. It was rumoured that Tom Jones passed out when recording his version as the note was so powerful and so long. Well at a recent event Gavin just took a breath in and held that note right until the end! Perfectly held and executed sir! What a vocalist!
It doesn’t just stop there. Gavin is also a James Bond film fanatic and has so many facts at his fingertips. He is a great front man who is relaxed and genial in his delivery, engaging the audience and keeping them entertained in between the songs too! So if you want to see Gavin perform this wonderful Bond theme song in person then you have to book the band! Contact us today for a fully inclusive and competitive quote for your event.
It’s not just Gavin that is amazing – the whole band totally rocks. Band members are exceptional musicians and every single one loves playing the Bond themes. Although band members perform in other function bands, as is the case with most, if not all professional musicians on the circuit, when a James Bond Tribute Band booking is on the horizon, every single member of the band is suddenly available and they dep out other events in order to do the Bond one! Band members are experienced, professional, fun and easy going. Each member takes a personal pride in ensuring the sound and look of the band/songs are just right and work hard on their own performance. The band only ever plays 100% live – there are never any backing tracks used – so you can be sure the performance and sound is always 100% and totally live.
Don’t take our word for just how good this band is – check our out videos or come along to one of our rehearsals and meet the members of The Name Is Band – Bond Tribute Band! Alternatively give our Miss Moneyspent an email to find out more!
