Say Hello to The Gherkins
Brothers, Glenn and Grant Davison each bring a unique character to their performance as The Gherkins.

When the Gherkins played at Jo’s funeral wake it lifted the spirits of everyone there. We had always wanted the event to be a celebration of life and an opportunity to talk and share happy memories. The Gherkins brought an infectious enthusiasm for music with songs that everyone both knew and loved. The songs they played were both well-chosen and performed and struck a chord with everyone, young or old, who was there. Both my daughter and I feel that their music, humour and energy made a massive difference to what everyone there agreed was a most memorable and positive tribute to Jo.P Cracknell
