This trio of likeminded musicians formed in early 2017, and have already made their mark with their upcoming group.

What event planners say about our suppliers


Everything was perfect. The Band performed very well and especially Geoff did a really good job in entertaining the crowd and he supported me in an amazing way. I am not running the event next year but I will definitely recommend to book this Band again next year. It couldn’t have been better and the guests enjoyed the evening very much….thanks again for your help. Take care!


Many thanks to Steve for providing the entertainment for my birthday party. It was thoroughly enjoyed by all. It was a small party for about 40, which included kids. Steve arrived on time, set up and pretty much set the pace for the party. He was funny and very entertaining. Plenty of audience participation. I would 100% recommend him again. A great singer and musician. We had a great time thanks to Steve Roxton.


Blag played at our wedding reception and were fantastic, it created such a good atmosphere and everyone really enjoyed it!
