The Isle of Wight's Hottest Rockabilly Trio!

Two guitars and a tea chest bass is the band lineup.

directory of local bands
Formed in 2009 to make a bit of extra cash busking, we've gone on to do gigs for Bryan Adams and have supported the Pretty Things.

We've done christenings, weddings and wakes and are suitable for both a young and old audience.

We cover tunes by the likes of Big Joe Turner, Louis Jordan, Louis Prima, Carl Perkins, and Bill Haley, Elvis, Buddy Holly, to more obscure artists like Benny Cliff, The Robins, and Jerry Irby to name a few.

The genre of music we play is raw sounding.
The original artists would basically gather around a mic and record live, no high end production was involved.
Our sound is basically the same, we don't rehearse for hours on end, we simply just workout a tune's arrangement on the fly and perform it live in the street. If it goes down well and money is thrown in the guitar case, it stays in the set.
Improvising, and free flowing this way means the tunes we play are always fresh sounding and are never like we are just going through the motions.

We come in both acoustic and full PA formats.

The acoustic setup involves one busking amp for the lead guitar and a lot of hollerin'. Suitable for small gatherings, where the neighbours might not appreciate the full blast of our PA.
For larger get together's we have PA, mics and amps.
