The Bees' return 'was important for Isle of Wight music'

Music on the Isle of Wight will receive a boost from the recent gig on the island by local boys The Bees.

In his review of the Isle of Wight band's recent show at the Ventnor Winter Gardens venue, Dave Champion stated that their return was one of the most important events to take place on the island for a long time.

Writing for VentnorBlog, he said: "The evening as a whole was a resounding success with one of the best atmospheres of any island event in recent times."

Mr Champion also had praise for support band The Shutes, who are also from the Isle of Wight.

He said they performed their role of getting the crowd worked up for the headline act of the night admirably.

The Bees have so far released three albums and are perhaps best-known for their hit single Wash in the Rain, which reached the top 40 of the UK chart when it was released in 2004.
