Focus – Sylvie
Exciting news that legendary rock band Focus will headline Wokingham Festival this year. The band, who recently celebrated their 50th anniversary, played a brilliant set at Wokingham Music Club in 2018 to a sold-out crowd, so we can’t wait for them to return to the area for day three of this year’s festival on August holiday. Monday August 29.
This song is from their album Focus 3 and when released as a single it reached number four on the UK Singles Chart – https://focustheband.co.uk/
