Geocache Name:

The Tin Pan Alley Band (GC2C1NN)

Difficulty/Terrain Rating:

2.5/1.5

Why this is the Geocache of the Week:

Musicians and geocachers share quite a few traits. Namely, when they get together, amazing things can happen. One geocache maker has set out to prove this idea by creating one giant geocacher-powered band. And where better to recruit musicians than London’s Denmark street? This famous place is also known as the British Tin Pan Alley. Artists like Elton John, Jimi Hendrix and the Sex Pistols all have ties to this area. Whether or not the band will be headlining any tours or festivals this year has yet to be decided, but one thing is for sure: between the electric triangle players, backup singers, guitarists, cellists and percussionists, this band is going to top the charts for sure.

# of Finds:

2025

# of Favorite Points:

776

What the geocache owner, goldpot, has to say:

“I read every single log (which is almost daily!) and it gives me a great uplifting feeling to read them knowing that I have made so many geocachers happy and given them a geocache of a difference in such an urban location. As for the Favorite Points – totally amazed with the shear numbers  – go to show, the most simplest geocache, can create the greatest awards!

The best geocaches are those which surprises us geocachers, either by it’s location, history, scenery, challenges or the geocache originality – get them all and they’ll clock up the geocache Favorite Points!”

What geocachers are saying:

“What an amazing cache. A must if passing this location. gets a favourite.” – Pebbles&Co

“This is a wonderful cache and a definite favourite. Never seen one like this before and it’s excellent TFTC” – Tangled two

“Brilliant idea for a cache, first time I’ve seen one like this but worked out straight away what I needed to spot… and after a couple of minutes there it was! Thanks for the cache, this one gets the favourite point for the evening. Add another bass player to the band!” – BandMandAandA
