Résumé of Bands
A popular local band and staunch supporters of local causes, often number 7 or more members with great instrumental variety.
They hail primarily from Bridport playing a varied selection of music from classics of the 50’s and 60’s to modern and contemporary covers that together embrace the decades of popular music. You will feel part of their act when invited to join in their warm embracing sounds.
Formed some four years by 3 accomplished Country Music musicians, play strong gritty Country sounds flavouring the like of Merl Haggard and fellow Country Music icons. If the Country Music feel of a bygone era is what you enjoy, then come and lay back in the sun and soak up this mellow sound usually only acheived by larger bands of this genre.
Since it’s revival, ‘Ukele’ ( Little Flea ) music has had a mixed reception often seen as uninspiring and somewhat limited, but local group ‘Bobby’s Gurlz’ have worked hard to dispel that myth with great harmonies both instrumentally and vocally. This is a great oppportunity to hear a ‘Uke’ played with feeling, purpose and passion complimented by sweet vocals. Definitely a band worth listening to.
Much acclaimed ‘Acoustic Rooster ‘ are Bridports premier Folk Band and are reported as ” an extremely talented Band with an extensive repertoire, they posess an excellence of vocals and instruments”. Comments such as this have made them a much sought after band for events and Festivals across the Southwest. Noted for their Charitable Fund raising they play a blend of Traditional, Irish and contemporary Folk music that gets feet tapping and spirits raising. A must see act.
