Marc Gallagher

Starting out working out the Crazy Frog theme song on piano at the age of 12, I swiftly expanded my musical repertoire over a handful of years. I can now play 10 instruments (Guitar, Bass and Ukulele being my strongest), and with a shameless musical upbringing of Queen and NOW CD's, I swiftly started writing mostly Pop songs, spanning a variety of topics and emotions. As a cover artist I pride myself in my versatility. Whether the crowd want to dance on tables to pub-rock, laugh with nostalgic fondness over underrated hits of their childhood, or absorb gentle background ambiance, I adapt my set to whatever the gig demands. With over 10 hours of material, I guarantee something for any kind of event or genre. Gigging is a word somewhat synonymous with me, due to an extensive catalogue of previous performances, especially in 2016. A crusade of playing every single day for 3 months saw me playing gigs and festivals in Crewe, Nantwich, Live...

Thomas Brian

Hi my name’s Thomas Brian. I’m originally from Leicester but I’ve lived in Greater Manchester since 2007 when I moved up north to study music at Salford University. Since then I’ve been very active in the Manchester music scene, playing in a variety of function bands, originals bands and acoustic ensembles. in the summer of 2015 I spent several months as the resident guitar vocalist at Caldera Palace, a 5* Thomson resort in Crete. This was a big learning curve for me as it allowed me to improve my playing, having to perform up to four sets a night, six nights a week to a widely varied audience. Alongside playing function events as a guitar vocalist, I'm also the bassist in The Robbers, a three piece function band based in Manchester.
