Rock duo
Classic Rock Duo packing a punch

Hello, My name is Hugh, I am one half of a classic rock duo looking for gigs: I play a self made hybrid drum kit with my feet whilst covering bass and lead lines on split keyboards. Tomm plays shredding guitar riffs and licks, whilst we both offer big rock vocals and harmonies. In short we are a rock band packed down to a duo.

What a fantastic band, I can’t believe the breadth of sound that you managed to make with just two guys. You made our night.
