'Alchemista', an originals band with a folk-pop flavour, has recently 're-grouped' with a new line-up, bigger and better than before. Rehearsals are going well and we should be out there soon! To put the cherry on the cake, it would be great if we could find a female harmony/backing vocalist to complete the line-up. We rehearse every week at Heart of England Social Club, Meriden, near Coventry. PLEASE NOTE: The recordings on this page were done with different musicians than Alchemista for my solo album. Alchemista's musicians are just as good but the way we're playing the songs is a little bit different - a bit more rocky but still easy on the ear.

A bit folky (but not too folky) blended with a pop/rock feel. There's a touch of blues and country in there too!

Although this is a new venture, we are all very experienced musicians, giggers and performers.
We have all the gear for gigging - full PA (and lights).
Join us at a new monthly open-mic starting Thursday 19th May, at the Heart of England Social Club, Meriden from 8.30 – 11.00. Monthly open-mics will continue on the third Thursday of each month.
Anyone who wants to come along and strut their stuff will be welcome - from solo singers to full bands.
Run by folk-pop band Alchemista, the usual sort of routine will apply, e.g. sign up for a slot on arrival (usually 3 songs), Alchemista will start the evening with three songs then it’s over to you. You’ll get a quick sound check, you’ll be announced on and off, and we’ll be on-hand at all times to support you and make sure that it’s a positive experience.
Just turn up on the night, or get in touch beforehand: Phone Colin on 07815 076775 or e-mail Caroline on firstname.lastname@example.org
Full PA, stage monitoring and experienced sound engineer.
Drum kit available for bands. Plenty of space on stage.
Here’s a link to a map of the location in Meridon.
Easy to find – just behind the duck pond.
Plenty of parking and very pleasant venue.
