About The Shambolics

Wedding band
Halesowen
Public liability insurance of £5 million
Peaky Blindin' Rock n Roll band. The hardest working band in the Black Country.

Based in the Black Country, the Shambolics were formed when a group of friends started an open mic night. Through this they met lots of talented musicians who bit by bit joined the band, creating a supergroup with 2 rhythm guitarists, 1 lead guitarist, a harmonica player, a drummer and a bass guitarist. With three part harmonies as standard and four different vocalists, they've become the professional function band they are today, well known all over the Black Country for their energetic live shows. If you like to sing, dance and have a great time, we are the band for you.

Customer questions

Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?

We have 4 lead vocalists who also provide harmonies.
