What Type of Music?
The band specialise in the best tunes of the last 30 years - as an unplugged Acoustic Trio, or an amped-up three-piece band, they deliver extraordinary renditions from the genres of Indie-Rock, Pop, Rap & Hip-hop, plus a few golden oldies thrown in to boot.
Since 2005 the three bandmates have toured together as the powerhouse rhythm section behind several top UK tribute artists, bringing their recorded music to an extraordinary level of live showmanship. Diversifying into their own powerful covers act, and with Matt & Robin at the helm, the band have continued entertaining audiences from rock clubs to holiday parks, theatres to cruise ships, weddings and corporate functions to huge music festivals in the UK, Canada, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, Finland, Portugal & Poland. Our long list of previous clients includes global giants Versace, Microsoft, HSBC and Virgin, cruise lines Royal Caribbean and P&O, and hotel chains such as Intercontinental, Marriott and The Four Seasons.
