We’re from the 70s.
Some of us appear on albums released on original vinyl - yes, we really are that old! But we’ll give your guests a night to remember! We’ve done the miles to be outstanding players.

We no longer play for the money, hence our ridiculously modest fee - we have absolutely no interest in the money! We’re doing this simply to be back out on the road again, expertly playing the soundtrack of our youth at ordinary peoples parties and at rock venues around London and the Hom ...

Biography

Just too much to say here. We are old, we were ‘there at the time’ when we were just bits of kids: and we’ve all done so much since. We are easily found on line if you want to find out who we used to be! Just look for - Below the Border rock.

But to give you a flavour; and not wishing to bore the pants off you . . . .

We all got started in music when we were about 12 . . .

The bass player Noel and the drummer Steve were both in a famous band gigging around the Birmingham circuit called Spellbound when they were 16, 17 and 18 years old. You can hear Spellbo ...

Experience

We left the music business professionally decades ago. We no longer play for the money, hence our ridiculously modest fee - we no longer have any interest in the money!
But we’ve always gigged, playing every type of venue over the years. From town halls to village halls, from tiny music pubs to iconic rock venues, from rock clubs on the continent from to big stage festivals during English summers. We’ve done the miles to be exceptional players.

Acting Experience

George Harrison once said,
“There are only two types of people in the music business, priests and pirates. The trouble is they often come to you wearing each other’s clothes”
So back in the day we learnt all about acting!

Modelling Experience

As amazingly attractive and stunningly good-looking as we all are, we’ve actually never done any modelling. That ship has probably now sailed!

Meet the Act

The agency ask us to wax lyrical in this section so readers gets an idea of our personality . . .
.
Well individually we all got started in music when we were about 12.
.
The bass player Noel and the drummer Steve were both in quite a famous band gigging around the Birmingham circuit when they were 16, 17 and 18 years old. You can hear Spellbound’s music by looking them up on the Birmingham music archive. The second ever gig Spellbound did was was supporting Georgie Fame in the Blue Flames at Birmingham‘s largest club, Barbarellas; when they were 16 and very much underage. ...

Additional Information

We have £1M public liability insurance
Equipment is pat checked.
We have a modern state of the art 1,000 wattYamaha PA but our instruments and backline amps are vintage and are worth more than our cars - we like the authentic sound of the 70s on stage. Our set up is very much old school.
