Hampton School’s Rock Concert 2022 treated a packed audience to a diverse selection of music from Hamptonians across the year groups.
Ably presided over by Sixth Form compères Milo Heard and Johnny Evans-Hutchison, the Hammond Theatre was treated to an eclectic mix of music accompanied by dazzling visual and special effects that contributed to a spectacular evening. The show kicked off with Upper Sixth band, Atlanticus Oceanus, playing a stylish rendition of Catfish and the Bottlemen’s Longshot. Ben Francis and Ethan Willis each lit up the Hammond Theatre stage with their respective covers of Elton John’s Your Song and Lenny Kravitz’s Are You Gonna Go My Way?
Fifth Year Hamptonians Felix Von der Geest and Leo Sutherby took to the stage to perform their original song Do You Know who you’re Voting For? Next up, Junior Rock Band finished off the first act with a fusion of hard rock and grunge music with their versions of AC/DC’s Back in Black and Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit.
Intermediate Rock Band launched into the second half with a funky cover of Stevie Wonder’s Superstition, followed by a version of Wolf People’s Kingfisher. A highlight of the night came with Alas, No Moore’s cover of AC/DC’s It’s a Long Way to the Top. This performance featured a stunning bagpipes section, which was met with rapturous applause from the audience.
Upper Sixth group, Dynamix, played their impressive rendition of the modern classic Take Me To Church originally by Hozier. Senior Rock Band closed the show with an effective mix of contemporary and classic rock by performing Avoid’s Heat and The Cult’s She Sells Sanctuary. A brilliant evening of performances from Hamptonians that brought the Hammond Theatre to their feet. Well done to everyone who played!Back to All Articles
