ABOUT

I run a tight band doing interesting covers that nobody else does. We like to take good songs that don't get enough attention and make them our own. Some well known, some obscure. Pretenders, Bowie, Patti Smith, Foo Fighters, the Who, Stereo 360, Cracker, Midnight Oil, The Strangeloves, Turbonegro are among the artists we cover. Goal for this project is to do event-based shows. One 90-120 minute headline set, or a 60+ minute opening set. I have put together two and three-act bills for promoters to work with. Will also do the odd bar gig.
