We decided early on that we don’t want to be another ‘pub band’ playing every weekend. Nor do we want to play at weddings and other private social functions – too stressful! Frank and Bill decided that as they are the aging contingent they would need to save their energy for six to ten gigs a year if we wanted to do each gig justice... which we do! The other two (youngsters!) reluctantly agreed!
We tend, therefore, to play at events where there is some kind of ‘good cause’ involved. Previous gigs have raised funds for village halls, cancer charities, hospices and so forth. All we ask are reasonable expenses, the amount of which will depend upon individual circumstances.
However, there are no hard and fast rules for this and you should contact us to find out if your needs fit with our values. We also prefer minimal travelling (old geezers... see above!) so that is also a consideration. We are centred around North Oxfordshire in the Banbury, Bicester, Buckingham triangle. Anything North of Oxford should be OK for us.
We can accommodate any style of event and can tailor our sets to the preferred timing. We do not have stage lights, or dance floor lights, so you will need to bear that in mind when planning your event. As you can see from the videos on this website we are four sane, sober and personable individuals who just delight in the opportunity to play some great songs to appreciative people!
