We are Dr Butler’s Hatstand Medicine Band, a travelling troupe of musicological minstrels, peddling our unique good-time tonic to all four corners of the land. Made from a secret combination of early blues and jazz forms, a sprinkle of ragtime, a dash of hot swing, the essence of sweet spiritual, a pinch of the oldest of old-timey melodies and a teaspoon of Vaudevillian and Music Hall showoffery, all whisked together with the most esoteric of folk rhythms. The result is a surpassingly melodious music which is replete with tones of joy and fulfilment. This harmonic medicine is a natural aid to titillation and is a guaranteed restorer of vitality, vim and vigour.
Allow us present to you our good-time rags and reels, show stoppers and sight stealers; music for foot stomping and toe tickling that joins hearts with flesh whilst invigorating the thinking mind. We stand before you as harbingers of gentility, bearers of ingenuity, possessors of con...

It wouldn’t be unfair to say The Crutwell’s have been around a bit (musically speaking, of course).

Strictly no backing tracks, The Crutwell’s aren’t just keeping acoustic music live... they are keeping it alive, and God bless em’ for it.
You can book us as solo (acoustic guitar and vocals) or a duo (acoustic guitar, violin and two vocals) or even just the vi...

Birthday party (adult)
- Newcastle Upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear
I'm throwing a surprise 70th birthday party for my grandma on July 1st 2017 in Ponteland (Newcastle Upon Tyne) I'm looking for a soul singer who can sing Sam Cooke classics for me as he is her favourite singer for hour.
we have recently opened our Fanzone on matchdays, where we host live bands, I want to check if you are available for Saturday 19th December, this would be between the hours of 12-3pm, with 2 x half hour slots ? please let me know your thoughts, and also if available the costs ? this is Christmas theme day.
King Brasstards were quite simply incredible! They rocked our venue and entertained our crowd from start to finish. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending them and we are trying to think of a reason to have them back asap.
I'm so glad we booked jeremy and his band in July. They were absolutely amazing all day and made it the best day of our lives. Everybody thoroughly enjoyed it. I would definitively recommend this band to anyone who loves live music to suit all tastes and they are all very professional and give it their all,to make your day very special. Worth every penny. Thanks guys!

"Sound of the Suburb made our Dancing Party a great success. Everyone of every age from 20 to 60 plus danced away. All the thank yous after our party were to say what a brilliant band they were and how clever we were to find them!"
