ABOUT

Small 50s style rock and roll / rockabilly band with upright bass / vocal, guitar and stand up drummer.

Trying to use our 50s influences to integrate some more modern tunes in a rockabilly style, along with some original music into a mainly 1950s rock and roll set mainly for local pubs, clubs and festivals and events.

We just like the music and want to present it in a way that a modern audience can relate to at local festivals, pubs and social clubs.

Based Woking, Walton on Thames, Hanworth and rehearse in Sunbury..
