(Formerly True Grit band), we hit the road towards the end of 2014, and have since built up a reasonable size fan

base through their music, which consists mainly of 'covers' from the 60's/70's Pop/Rock/Soul & Funk genres.

But played with a hard edge and a little 'attitude' . (No Heavy Rock or Grunge).

Current members are :-

B.B. (BillyBoy) Smith, - Lead Vocals and Guitar.

Mont Rose, - Guitar / Backing Vocals.

Joe Bago, - Saxaphone / Backing Vocals.

Dave Micklethwaite, - Bass Guitar / Backing Vocals. 

Tony Corish - Trumpet / Backing Vocals

Lawrence (Lol) Higgins - Drums


We are self contained - (i.e.  carry own lighting and P.A. system) and can perform at most moderate size venues. We also have current liability insurance and P.A.T. test certificate. Very affordable entertainment for your event/venue. accomplished musicians with many years experience.
