Good Morning Boys & Girls..

The Band had a successful run of shows down south last weekend and it’s looks as tho the word is rapidly spreading about the band and the reactions have been sensational to say the least..


The band kicked off their first of three shows with Snakecharmer in Edinburgh and went down a storm, performing a short but powerful set of music from our debut album with a new song thrown in as well. 


Last Friday we headed to London ULU and again blew the roof off the place and performed to satisfied fans of both us and Snakecharmer.

Last but by no means least we played The Stables, Milton Keynes on Sunday evening, performing a slightly shorter set but didn’t stop the fans getting right into the songs and singing along so all in all, three great shows and we would like to thank Snakecharmer for asking us to open up for their shows.


Next up for the band is the Winterstorm Festival, Troon which will probably be the biggest gig for the band this year, sharing the bill with some fantastic artists and the guys are ready and raring to go.


Thanks again for everyone’s support and hope to see many of you there on the 23rd November 😁



13/10/18

The guys are very much looking forward to the shows and hopefully they will attract some new fans along the way.


Rehearsals begin next week for their 45 min set which will consist of their best songs from the debut album Vol.1 and possibly some fan favorites time permitting :)



25/09/18
