HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Hello 2018, Goodbye 2017!


Last year was our busiest year yet with gigs across the country from Derbyshire to Cornwall, North Wales to Essex including performances for weddings, birthdays, corporate events and the odd celebrity bash!

 

Although gigs are slow in January its very busy behind the scenes with bookings coming in for functions, festivals, flash mobs, marriage proposals (shhh!) as well as dates in the bars and clubs around us here in Bristol.

 

 

Its also a time to update our repertoire and keep things fresh so expect to hear some new tunes in 2018 (as well as the old favourites) from amongst others Duran Duran!


 

BRISTOL INTERNATIONAL JAZZ & BLUES FESTIVAL 

We will be playing here on the last day of the festival, Sunday 18th March.

Catch our performance for free in the foyer along with the best of the rest of Bristol’s talented musicians.  

 
 

The LIVE DATES section will be kept fully up to date so you can see where to find us out and about.
