Strachan Central

Previously, The Strachan's, this talented covers bands have played Hose Fest and many local events and always get the crowd up and dancing

Faulty New Goods are an ever-popular local band playing some classic and some not-so-familiar covers. Now in their stripped back semi-acoustic version you can be sure of plenty of great songs to singalong to with a beer in your hand !   

Faulty New Goods



Jamie, Alex, Lawrence and Evan have been mates since secondary school, where 3 of them formed band 'Vacant Wave' and played at local gigs. They each went their separate ways, University, Apprenticeships, but always remained friends. 4 years ago Jamie met Christina, they formed Acoustic Duet 'Jamina' and have played local gigs and weddings since they got together. It made sense for the musicians to get together and share their love for music with others - forming the band 'Outnumbered'

Mike Hill

Vocalist Mike Hill will be joined by Chris and Debbie Green, playing jazz, bluesy and funky versions of The American Song Book. Chris and Debbie who form two thirds of The Groove Merchants, are regulars at Nottingham’s The Pelican Club and The Tilt Bar to name just a few of the venues that enjoy their playing

Ross Harding

Singer songwriter Ross Harding grew up in Long Clawson, but cut his teeth playing gigs and open mics while at University in Reading, before playing regularly in Oxford, London & Nottingham. His set list includes numbers from Bob Marley, The Beatles and Leonard Cohen, as well as a couple of his own numbers. Ross's main influence is Bob Dylan, so he may add one or two of these songs for you

And maybeanother band TBC......... so it's all a bit last will be OK........entertainment guaranteed !
