Biography

Established in 2006. The group exists only to accompany silent films. We are recognised experts in the field.
We have played all sorts of venues including cinemas, churches, the Barbican Centre, a castle in Transylvania, outdoor events, the British Film Institute, but also village halls and community events.
We attract the very young through to the very old, film enthusiasts as well as those interested in music. Our sound is unique, theatrical, with no pre-recorded sounds or effects. A vintage film and a very live show!

Experience

The show is equally visual and musical. It does require a venue suitable for blackout, or near-dark. We bring and engineer all sound equipment and can provide projector if necessary. Our PA system is state-of-the-art. Audiences are surprised at the "immersiveness" of the experience.
