A Little Bit of Rock N’ Roll at Canary Wharf by L Katiyo

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA One of the lesser known aspects of Canary Wharf is that it is the venue for  a series of Free Drama and Music Nights over the Summer, these tend to be very popular with people who work in the offices and with Islanders.

Regular contributor L. Katiyo put on her dancing shoes and joined in the fun.

Last night, Canary Wharf rocked to the sounds of tribute band, The Rockerfellas.  The band played popular music by the Beatles, The Beach Boys and other great bands of the era.

They were followed by Summer Dreaming who opened with a song from Grease, wearing fabulous costumes from the 1950s.  It seems music from the 1950s and 1960s is still amazingly popular.

Even the teenagers who flocked to the Canada Square Park, probably dragged along by their parents, knew the words to most of the music.  The park came alive with non-stop dancing.  Fortunately, the weather was obliging.  Rain from earlier in the morning had dried up.
