All About Us

Origins of a Musical Collaboration

We are an accomplished, experienced, and versatile Weddings & Events Band, pleasing guests from the far north of Scotland to the south of England and their guests since 1998. However, our story as a musical group began much earlier, listening to songs together and coming up with our own variations to practice and perform. We knew our lives would be dedicated to music and performing for live audiences, and we couldn’t be happier to make a career out of playing a variety of musical styles and perfecting our performances.

 

Band Members

Who’s Who

Our band works together day and night preparing for performances in order to make sure whichever client we work with is happy and completely satisfied with our live performance. Check out the faces that make up our band and contact us to learn more.

 

Mitch Farmer

Vocals - Keyboard - Accordion

A band wouldn't be complete without a dynamic footstomping keyboardist, with ripping vocals, and a thrillingly masterful but delicate self styled playing accordionist, and we couldn’t have asked for a better one than our very own Mitch Farmer. Mitch Farmer does everything to guarantee we’re doing our very best in rehearsals and reaching our full potential.

Grant Budge

Guitarist - Vocals

Grant Budge has been with us from the very beginning. As our Guitarist he takes on quite a lot of responsibility, from fine-tuning our overall sound and playing an important factor on the musical arrangements of our songs. He also has a vocal style that compliments the band producing the full sounding 3 piece harmonys. He's our very own lighting engineer and always on hand assisting the other bandmates in perfecting their performances. 

Murray Farmer

Drums - Vocals

Murray Farmer is truly a shining star. Crowds always love seeing him in full performance mode hammering his beat out loud and proud, younger brother of Mitch he was also in the band since the very beginning. A dynamic vocalist with a huge range and unique voice. The band couldn’t be happier to have such an incredible drummer up on stage with us pounding away like his life depended on it.

The band have been together since 1998. Same line up since the very beginning. The boys played their 1st gig at Wick High School back in the summer of 98. They have stuck together through the highs and lows of life on the road, and will continue to do so forever, because.....
...........Just because 😁
