We’re really looking forward to performing at The Verwood Hub. We will be performing a lot of rock and roll and hits from the sixties. Our shows have been going down so very well all over the country and abroad.
I have been into music for as long as I can remember. My father bought me a banjo so I started from there. I lived and breathed music. I left school when I was 15 and have been in bands ever since. The 1960s was such an exciting time. The music was just great and was wonderfully written. We promise them (the audience at The Verwood Hub) a really good night. We perform a lot of numbers so hopefully we will have them buzzing in their seats and dancing in the aisles
