Old Enough to Know Better


We are old enough to know better, we love turning out, tuning up and keeping it live.
Neil is the latest addition to the band and his incredible guitar skills will take us to an even higher plain.
We are all passionate about playing live and sharing our take on rock, soul and blues.

From mid-November 2015 we secured the velvet tones of vocalists Rachel Hill & Leah Carroll-Taylor, neither are strangers to the music scene. Equally happy to rock out, catch the spirit of the blues or cover the classics from the legends of soul, the acrobatic vocals of such seasoned performers are certainly worth an earful.

The ladies are ably supported by fellow Old Enough to Know Better musicians, Phil Edwards (drums), Steve Portman (bass), Neil Smith (guitar) and John Alder (guitar) . . and our genius sound engineer Sam Carroll-Taylor.

Whether you’re looking for a wedding band to get the dance floor buzzing, a party venue group for a pub or birthday boogie, check us out.
We’re well rehearsed and use top quality instruments and the latest digital sound gear and are happy to oblige.

A demo disc is available on request.
And finally . . . we’re up for a laugh (often at our own expense), short on ego and big on enthusiasm.
