London Calling
London Calling was formed in 2004 as a one-off gig for charity and to celebrate the life of Joe Strummer After playing the short (12) song set we were asked to play the whole set again, with half the audience joining us on the tiny stage. We decided to sharpen our act and play regularly from that point. We then were caught up in the infamous texting scandal, in which our then bass player was question by Special branch under suspicion of being a terrorist

After a few years off and several line-up changes, its now settled down to: Reg Shaw aka Joe Strummer, Dave Devonald aka Mick Jones, Joe Guatieri aka Paul Simonon and Shane Tremlin aka Topper Headon. We Have played in the USA and Europe and been in the Julien Temple directed Joe Strummer film biog, The Future is Unwritten. Recently we have enjoyed rave reviews and have been playing to increasingly bigger audiences across the UK.

The Ramonas
As the name suggests The Ramonas are an all female tribute to the iconic New York Punk Rock band Ramones.

Originally conceived back in 2004 with multiple different lineups, The Ramonas have evolved into a fully fledged, razor sharp live band in their own right!

Touring, Touring is never boring and these girls are guaranteed to play high energy, full throttle one hour shows that'll leave you buzzing for more of that 1976 spirit. These four lovable cretins rarely even stop for a quick sip of water and a hello…. It's 1234 and they're onto the next hit, and the great thing is that they do it all in their own unique way…. wherever they play, from the UK to Europe to the USA!

Some say playing the Ramones tunes is easy, but capturing the vibe and essence of such a well loved band mixed with the required speed, stamina and endurance is no mean feat.. Cloey, Pee Pee, Rohnny & Cammy are definitely here to stay! Gabba Gabba HEY!!!
