We; the band members, are all really good friends and really enjoy gigging together.

THE PAUSE

I met Hannah through the Vicious Kitten band. Together we created a side project, playing acoustic versions of pop and rock songs. Although we started out playing in pubs, we now frequent some beautiful wedding venues while we provide music for wedding ceremonies, drinks receptions and early evening entertainment.
