Brendan has been brought up in the Folk/Celtic music circles having played & danced in many groups. He currently plays guitar with Rufus Return Ceilidh Band and Father Jack Celtic Band. Brendan also has an empathy for dancing having been a member of Chequered Flag Appalation step, Mary Rose & Royal George Street Dancers and many Morris Dancing sides. When the opportunity arose and Carly showed an interest in singing, Brendan jumped at the chance to play a different genre of music. Carly has been brought up surrounded by live music. Her uncle was a drummer in many bands and her father used to be a roadee! Her parents took her to see live acts around the Southampton area from a very young age, many of whom her parents were and are good friends with. As Carly grew up, she developed a love of singing. She attended local karaoke nights and later enjoyed recording various cover tracks in a studio as gifts to her parents. She even recorded her own first dance song for her wedding day as a surprise to her husband! Brendan and Carly met back in 2010 through Brendan's wife Jodi. They would get together at mutual friend's parties, BBQs and camping weekends, often ending up playing and singing around a camp fire or simply jamming in someone's lounge! Brendan was keen to start performing more mainstream songs, something a little different to what he already enjoyed with both Father Jack and Rufus Return. In 2014 he asked Carly to join him as a duo doing just that and Acoustic Roulette was formed! Since then Acoustic Roulette have performed at a friend's 50th birthday festival, a wedding of one of Carly's friends and at local open mic nights. Finally after lots of fun rehearsing, Acoustic Roulette played their first offical gig at The Anchor Inn, Eling on 6th August 2016! Acoustic Roulette are available to play at local public venues, festivals and private functions in and around the Southampton area! We cover a range of slow and up tempo songs to include artists such as Alanis Morissette, 4 Non Blondes, Amy MacDonald, Sheryl Crow, Green Day, P!nk, Bruce Springsteen, Rihanna and Tom Petty to name just a few!

A fantastic Sunday afternoon spent in the garden listening to Acoustic Roulette. A great set list with some unexpected but very sing-alongy covers. Looking forward to the NYE gig.

Thank you so much for playing at the new inn the past couple of times. The pair of you were brilliant and everyone loved the different range of music! Definitely recommend you to everyone who wants Sunday afternoon music or a Saturday night sociable band
