I Love Thunder are a band with a difference, in that most of them have some form of learning disability. Over the past 6 months they have been using their BBC Performing Arts Funding to jam with a series of performers from a variety of different genres. This show was a celebration of these encounters and some of the magic they all experienced along the way. The whole evening is being filmed and recorded by young film production company Oliver's Island. In fact the evening started off with the film you can see at the top of this page.

The evening’s line up featured the following acts performing on their own and then joining I Love Thunder to showcase some of the highlights from their work together.

Marianne Hyatt and Bob Collum with Phil Martin

Two shining stars on the London country scene, both hailing from Texas. Expect sweet harmonies
and authentic country tunes.

"…she is triumphant live; the men love her because they are Pavlovian, the women love her because she makes them feel like Calamity Jane" – Harpers and Queen
"..Collum's Anglophile Americana reaps subtle yet sustaining dividends" - Daily Mirror
