Public liability insurance of £5 million

With years of experience including ex military musicians and ex semi pros we are guaranteed to fill your dance floor. We’re a stylish quality band with excellent vocals and back line. We have a driving horn section of trumpet, trombone, saxophone, who really keep the music alive. Everyone can hold their own as a soloist and you will hear plenty throughout our performance. The band are willing to tackle live, some charts that are normally only played in the studio. Our repertoire is vast including all the traditional 2 tone numbers and quite a few new ones. We are not afraid to take risks and every session you will hear something new to the mix. We rehearse weekly so we are adding new charts to our repertoire constantly, and if you have a request, let us know when you book us and we are always happy to oblige. Largest crowd played to : 6500. Support to Bad Manners. “These guys are bloody brilliant, best thing to come out of Yorkshire in years”

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

We play cover songs with our own twist. We are a fun interactive band who love what we do. We don’t just perform we enjoy the night as much as our audience. 90% of our bookings in 2022 have booked us for 2023. It’s great to see familiar faces as our fan base grows.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We are the first band to have played pitchside at Castleford Tigers. Three times we have been to Tickles Music Hall, always a great crowd. The infamous Domino Club in Leeds Centre. The Irish Centre Leeds. Military reunions; Sapperfest and All Arms fest. The Box Manchester and YSA National Rideout to name a few.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

The Specials, Bad Manners, The Beat, The Selector, Madness, Prince Buster, The Bodysnatchers. All music that helped build Ska with passion.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

Being the first band to play pitchside at Castleford Tigers in front of nearly 6,500 people has to be one of the best!

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

We have our permanent band members who are our standard who you get on the night line up. As a professional band we have pre-auditioned deps that stand in for members, should someone fall ill or become unavailable. Our deps are of the same high standard as our permanent enabling us to fulfil bookings throughout the year.

Do you have different line-up options?

Our band line up is lead guitar and vocals, bass guitar, drums, keyboards, full horn section consisting of sax, trumpet, trombone and flute with backing vocals.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We try to be as flexible as possible so if timings change just let us know and we will do our best to accommodate.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Yes we can provide a DJ who works with us and compliments our music. This costs an additional £250

How much time do you need to set up?

We are an 8 piece band and have our own pa and sound tech. We do require access 3 hours prior.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

Yes! We aim to please and are more than happy for you to pick the set list that suits you.

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

We have a full up to date PA system and our own sound technician which is included in the price.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We are more than happy for you to request a song, as long as it is within the genre of music we play. If it is a song we need to rehearse there will be an additional £30 fee.
