We are a band of four senior musicians playing REAL old-time rock 'n' roll and country, singing in three- and four-part harmonies. (A list of country and rock 'n' roll song examples is below.)

I myself – bass guitar, keyboards, backing & harmony and some lead vocals, composer – am living in Esher, Surrey. I am in my sixties, and also the other members (lead guitarist, rhythm guitarist, drummer) of the band are great, mature citizens. We all are very friendly, nice and funny guys. We are a happy band.

We started from scratch and have been rehearsing very systematically for about 10 months building our repertoire.

Our devoted lead singer had to very reluctantly leave us because of family issues, so now we need a LEAD SINGER. If interested in singing rock 'n' roll and country with us, please kindly post a reply or send me a private message.

We are serious and are going to gig (pubs, weddings, parties, anywhere) a bit later. We have been practising once a week, mostly in Esher, Surrey, and that's how we are going to go on. Even though we are serious and very disciplined, we are having great fun and enjoying every minute we are together. Come and join us.

As hinted above, please notice that Kingston upon Times is NOT where we are. StarNow only does not let us set the location more precisely. But we hope that YOU are somewhere relatively close to Esher, Surrey, for example in Kingston upon Times or anywhere else not too far from Esher for you to be able to come to Esher weekly.

To make it clear: We have chosen our style and are glad to stick to it. We play traditional rock 'n' roll and country songs with harmonies. Nothing else. Everyone (including me) has his (her) favourite pieces of music of other styles, but this band will not play them.

By 'country' I mean songs like There Goes My Heart, Before The Next Teardrop Falls, When Rita Leaves, She Thinks I Still Care, King of the Road, I Fall to Pieces, Sixteen Tons, Jambalaya, Me and Bobby McGee, Harper Valley P.T.A., Tennessee Waltz, Folsom Prison Blues, Act Naturally, Lucille (Kenny Rogers), On The Road Again, Always On My Mind, Settin' the Woods on Fire, Red River Valley (for example Michael Martin Murphey), I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry, Hey Good Lookin', Tear Stained Letter, Walk On By (Leroy Van Dyke) and There Goes My Everything.

By 'rock & roll' I mean songs like Blue Suede Shoes, Ready Teddy, Shake, Rattle and Roll, Rock Around The Clock, Tutti-Frutti, Jailhouse Rock, Johnny B. Goode, Hound Dog, Long Tall Sally, Shake, Rattle And Roll, Good Golly Miss Molly, Don't Be Cruel, Rock And Roll Music, Roll Over Beethoven, Sweet Little Sixteen, That's All Right, Lawdy Miss Clawdy, Old time rock and roll (Bob Seger), Memphis Tennessee and C'est la vie.
