"We are a teenage cover band from Kent. Our set is diverse and packed with different genres as we all listen to a range of styles. We all like to bring different things to the band and we feel this gives us a unique edge. We have been together as a band for a year and a half but have been playing music together since 2008. This gives us a strong bond as a band which means musically we are tight." Ayo - Percussion. Eddie - Piano and Vocals. Frances - Vocals, Guitar and Ukulele. Josh - Guitar, Vocals and Bass. Louis - Guitar, Vocals and Bass. Sophie - Vocals.

Dave La originates from Liverpool and is now on the circuit in Kent after years of being absent from the music world. Daves's past history has taken him through some cool adventures in Holland, Belgium, France, Spain and Portugal as a duo called Calmer Waters with good friend Kelvin Barr. Dave also played in the Liverpool band The Urchins as bass/vocalist who's members have now gone on to play in the Pete Best Band (Tony Flynn) and Stacked Actors (Sean Prescott). Dave has experience of live radio where he played guitar and backing vocals for Andrea Marshall at the BBC as well as a highlight gig with over 3,000 people at Santa Pod raceway for the VW Bug Jam, No Worries Festival.
After years of working in dock yards and building sites Dave has decided life was too short doing a day job you don't enjoy. So, with this in mind Dave finally returned to the one thing he is most passionate about.
Dave now enjoys small to medium gigs playing live covers from the likes of Eric Clapton, Paul Weller, Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, The Verve, Sting, Oasis, Crowded House, The Kinks, R.E.M, Ocean Colour Scene, ETC, ETC........and invites you to come along to the gigs and simply sit back and enjoy the totally live sound without backing tracks.
Do you remember 20 years ago . . . . . in a pub opposite the Guildhall drinking beer whilst a bunch of people sang, squeezed their squeeze boxes, played their fiddles, banged on their drum things . . . and we all sang along . . . .
