      EVENT DETAILS
      The Wedding Present

      The Wedding Present was originally formed in 1985 by vocalist and lead guitarist David Gedge. The line-up has changed over the years but these days Gedge is joined on stage by Simon Cleave, Terry de Castro and Graeme Ramsay. Their debut single Go Out And Get Em' Boy was released on a small scale, with only 500 copies being made and delivered to the distributors personally by Gedge. This down to earth attitude forms the foundation of the band and everything their music stands for. Their first hit was the single Kennedy from their 1990 album Bizarro. In 1997 Gedge began work on something completely new, Cinerama. This was a chance for David to indulge his love of film music and a new band of the same name was formed with then girlfriend Sally Murrell. In 2002, shortly after releasing their third Cinerama album, Torino, Gedge and Murrell split up. In 2004 Cinerama were re-formed as The Wedding Present. The final manifestation of the group is now touring with new and old material.
