Our main show is a Tribute to the Golden Era of Pop ( 50's ,60's 70's and 80's) playing classic tracks that every age group seems to know!.... but we can also perform songs from more recent decades (eg Ed Sheeran Coldplay Stereophonics and The Killers). We are also happy to learn any particular song for the occasion, if it isn't already in our repertoire. We have released 3 albums and 5 singles ( available on itunes through Cherry Red Records) The band has 4 lead vocalists. During the breaks we use an mp3 with varied play lists to suit any occacsion. We carry an excellent PA and Lighting ri ... g. If you'd like to get in touch I would be happy to discuss tailoring our performance to your requirements. We also do gigs as a solo / duo / trio .
The band's passion and obvious joy in the music is clear in their live act and their recordings. In addition, all of the band members are lead vocalists, enabling them to offer a range and depth of material that few other bands possess. In recent years, Go Go dancers have joined the band on stage, giving an exciting reminder of why the music of the 50’s , 60s , and 70s provided so many people with so much pleasure!
The current line up is: Paul Aitken (drums and vocals) Ben Grove (rhythm guitar and vocals) Steve Morley (bass guitar and vocals) Gordon Sellar (lead guitar and vocals . We car ... ry a high quality PA and Lighting system as standard.
The band has played Festivals , Corporate Functions , Clubs , Weddings , Birthday Parties , Universities and Colleges in venues large and small.
