UK: Dilemma, England's Youngest Rock Band, Performs FEBRUARY 25th in Essex

Dilemma, England's youngest rock band, is back for One World Beat 2005! Performing on February 25th at The Hermit in Essex, starting at 8pm, these Battle of the Bands winners will amaze you as much with their musicianship as they dazzle your ears with original tunes and covers of songs by Nirvana, Guns 'N' Roses, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Metallica, The Beatles, Queen, Santana, Eddie Van Halen, and more. Filmed by Sky One for a documentary called "The Secret British Stage", and twice appearing on BBC-TV, Dilemma has supported the likes of Midge Ure and Gerry and The Pacemakers, and has performed live in 50 concerts, including a One World Beat gig for 2004. Ben, on lead guitar, is 12, and has been called "the new Van Halen"; Laurie, on bass, is 10; and Josh, lead singer and drummer, is 11.

Getting a Friday night gig at The Hermit--a prime music venue--is an honor, and Dilemma has already played there on many occasions, as well as to a crowd of 8000 at the International Scout Jamboree in 2004. See more about them at their website (, and check out a show you've got to see and hear to believe. Their press materials describe them as "ordinary kids", and while they may be in some ways, in others they are extraordinary. We are proud to have Dilemma both as a participant and official supporter of One World Beat, using their immense talents to help children in need around the world. Youth helping to make a difference for other youth through the magic and power of music...that teen spirit truly rocks!
