Stage Parades started writing way back in 1974 under the name Theatre Exce. In 1994, we started to concentrate mainly on instrumentals and currently have 60 tracks in our portfolio. Special thanks to the Pet Shop Boys forum for A to Zephyr which received accolades and gained us many myspace friends. Avenues Of Variation is our new 14 track album for autumn 2008, promotional video slideshow on You Tube features Butterflyx. The 10 tracks are from various genres, eg Pop, Trance, Prog Rock, Film Soundtrack, Industrial and playing here, include A Country Mile and Enchanted Nights which are also available as an iTunes, Rhapsody and Amazon mp3 sites single. T New tracks from our 2009 project Through Sands Of Time are Heartland Rhapsody (Corton Denham remix), Be Someone (second non-vocal mix), Industrial Meltdown, The Valley Of Daydreams (first non-vocal mix), Lakes, one of 2 new remixes of our 2007 dance track Freeway Truckers, Parade With Pride and A Country Mile proving to be our most successful track to date. We like to vary the genres from track to track.
Why this name?
Stage Parades comes from a line 'parade me center of stage', from one of our Theatre Exce tracks 'Center Of Stage' written in the early 90's. It has proved to be a good choice.
Do you play live?
No, we don't play live.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Loads and loads. A favorite pastime spending hours browsing in bargain record shops is a thing of the past.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Chance would be a fine thing.
