van-cand-logo.jpg ‘The Vanilla Candy Girls’ History 
The Vanilla candy girls have been working together for 6 years, and have enjoyed performing at a number of functions, parties, weddings and venues. Here are a handful of things we have done together!
First met and decided to form an acoustic duo. We performed at ‘Expression open mic’ when it was at The Arts Bar in Wokingham, and we played ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ by Journey, ‘Umbrella’ by Rihanna and ‘Keep this fire burning’ by Beverley Knight.
We joined up as a 4-piece band with Stef (Drums) and his friend Phil (Bass)
We play as a band at Noctors in Maidenhead, and in a few pubs in Bracknell
We performed at the Hambledon Beer Festival
Phil leaves the band to go on tour with a big Hendrix tribute.
VC perform as a trio and a duo.
Mike and Jim join the band on Guitar and Bass.
The VC girls perform at a charity launch supporting X Factors Danyl Johnson.

Simon joins the band on Bass.
We perform at Nikki and Joe’s wedding at Wellington College, Crowthorne
We have a few gigs at The Bull and Butcher in Turville
The VC girls perform at Oxford Pride on the main stage supporting Baby D from the 90’s!
We play at the Lion’s ‘French night’ a charity night
Our band had a Christmas party  at The Prince in Crowthorne. We particularly enjoyed singing

We play as an acoustic duo at The Three Frogs in Wokingham again!
We joined a Disco band called ‘IN TOO CHIC’ and we all ready to gig with this line up!

This is us! (please note – Stef is usually on full drum kit, but used his cajon in the smaller venue on the video clips)


This is a section devoted to those who have served in VC, but for one reason or another had to move on. They all bought something new to the band, and we have enjoyed working with them all in different ways. Some of them still help VC in times of need.

Stef 2010 – 2015

Stef still performs with us from time to time, and he founded the band name alongside Gaby and Rachel. Performing with us for 5 years, we really built up our repetiore together and performed at a lot of functions and venues. We started off at Noctors in maidenhead and ended up performing at some very nice high end wedding venues around Berkshire.

Jim 2011-2015

Jim is an amazing bass player and still reps for us from time to time. We have appreciated his bass solo’s over the years, and he has helped us develop our set. A very popular pro player. Thanks Jim.

Simon Windersh 2013-2014

A brill bass player that was a VC member for a year. We loved practicing in his ‘shed’ and his original song ‘ Rain it down’ was a brill song to cover! We are very grateful to Simon for the work he put into VC. Simon now plays bass for a very busy band called Solace.

Simon Win

Simon Williams 2013-2014

Simon played lead guitar for VC, and his most memorable solo was ‘Knocking on Heavens Door’ and he bought an rockier edge to the band. A very skilful player, and we loved having him in VC. Simon now plays solo at functions and in venues. His solo career has taken off, which isn’t surprising!

Mike Kirkland 2011-2013

Mike played acoustic guitar for us, and bought new songs, gigs and a new energy to the band. We still do some of the songs he brought to the table today. Mike was a huge influence on the band, and for that we thank him. We remember him the most for his guitar introductions!

Phil Tidy 2009-2011

Phil was our first bass player in VC and we really loved working with him – he was a legend! Unfortunately he had to leave us as he went on tour with a big tribute band.
