ABOUT

AVALANCHE - CLASSIC ROCK BAND

At AVALANCHE we are passionate about music and entertainment and believe a gig is not just about great music but also engaging the audience and everyone having a good time.

The band "AVALANCHE" was started by Lead Vocalist Glen Crook and was formed in the 1990's but with a different name and set-up. The band has evolved over time and changed name to 'Avalanche' around 4 years ago with new members having joined over recent years to the current line up.

The Band plays in Pubs & Clubs, festivals and occasional charity events around London / Essex (including Central London / Chingford/ Loughton / Harlow/ Braintree / Southend-on-Sea / Clacton-on-Sea) but not limited to these areas.

The band is also available for Weddings and private parties at competitive rates.
