The Sheratones
The Sheratones, winners of the GBF Music Competition 2017, and playing Fri 2 June at 8pm

Live music at the Guildford Beer Festival, 2017

The Sheratones

The Sheratones attended the first of the GBF’s Audition Nights and were immediately regarded as a top favourite. Formed in 2013, they deliver a driving and catchy brand of rock and have gone from strength to strength, thanks to their unique sound based on the song writing talents of vocalist and guitarist Matt Smith. Matt explains that it is really hard to narrow down what inspires their music, as the group have such diverse and wide spanning influences – “a cocktail of different genres”. Staying true to their music is their passion and love, which is palpable as you watch them perform.

Our winners of the GBF Music Competition, 2017, will be playing at 8pm on Friday evening, 2 June.

Luch Stefano

Luch is a singer / songwriter who was born and raised in London. His musical influence started with Michael Jackson when he was 6 years old and then Eminem being a major role when he was just 12 years old after moving to Eastbourne.
Ed Sheeran became one of his biggest inspirations. From then on it opened his ears to music as a whole and he started writing in school when his music teacher encouraged him to sing in front of the class. Since then he has launched a 17 track album at Ronnie Scott’s with a live band for his iTunes and Spotify release, performed for Apple at their store launch on Regent Street as well as gigging and selling CDs trying to get as many people into his sound as possible.
