Waterman musicians a Smash-Hit at Construction Rocks!

Our Milly Bowen and Dan Kelly joined colleagues from across the industry to perform in supergroup ‘Change Control to Major Tom’ at Construction Rocks 2018, with the band taking home the coveted ‘Best Band’ trophy!

They took to the stage to perform 6 songs in a 15-minute set, seamlessly working through a medley of pop and rock tunes including hits by David Bowie, Queen and Whitney Houston. Milly and Dan teamed-up with Tiffany Jones (Chapman Consulting), Christopher Moore (Deloitte) and Chris Stourbridge (Putney Housing) to perform in front of a 700-strong crowd, impressing the judges with their vocal harmonies and multi-instrumental talents.

The event took place on Thursday 25th October at Scala in Kings Cross, London. The annual fundraiser sees professionals from across the construction industry rocking-out to raise vital funds for property industry charity, LandAid, among other charities and good causes. This year they raised a whopping £90,000.

Milly says; “We are over the moon to have won! It was such a fantastic event, with so many good bands taking to the stage that we never thought we’d be in with a chance of winning! It was an amazing experience and was great to see so many industry friends and colleagues in the crowd.”

Dan Says; “I’m still recovering from the shock of winning and I think we are all still up in the clouds! We were determined to do our best and raised our game in the face of fierce competition from some amazing established bands. We’ve won an awesome prize – a day’s worth of studio recording time, and we are now planning how to use this between us. The support of the company was fantastic, and it really spurred us on.”
