MUSIC: Boys have a bright future

West Notts College alumni, The Future Boys, tore up the stage when they played at The Diamond, in Sutton-in-Ashfield.

The quartet play a mix of rock, funk, punk, and anything else they can think of.

The Boys put on a lively stage show with catchy choruses, and a smattering of guitar solos. Their sound has been compared to The Clash and Jamiroquai.

Performing the kind of rock you can dance to – if the audience is anything to go by – The Future Boys just want you to have a good time, and the fifty minute set is over in no time.

“We’re all about fun, nothing too complex”, singer, Glenn Hudd, explained. When he’s not on- stage, or writing songs, Glenn teaches music to people with special needs. “It’s a good release to be up on stage”.

The Future Boys are singer, Glenn Hudd, guitarist, Joe Marriott, drummer, Christ Walton and bassist, Mark Footit.

The band first got together after studying a Popular Music BTEC at West Notts College, in 2006, where they developed their skills on stage.

After pursuing other projects, the Future Boys got together in 2012, and have been relentlessly gigging ever since.

The band have two more dates lined up for December, including The Clock, South Normanton, on 21st December and a New Year’s Eve gig at The Intake, Mansfield.

If having a good time is your thing, get down to a Future Boys gig while there’s still time.
