Description

Price from: £250

Below the Border are a four-piece rock/blues band who individually had notable musical careers in the 70s & 80s. Some of us had record contracts and appeared on vinyl albums - yes, we ARE that old!

Now we play for fun - in London music venues, in pubs, or at your party.

We cover our favorite classic rock & blues artists : Cream, Free, Rory Gallagher, David Bowie, T-Rex, The Kinks, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Faces, Steppenwolf, Steve Miller, Wilson Picket, BB King, Led Zeppelin, Canned Heat, The Who, Joe Cocker, Van Morrison, Gary Moore, Atomic Rooster, The Spencer Davis Group, etc., and we choose material that gets people dancing.

Our fee is inexpensive. We’ve had grown-up careers for decades. We do this for the playing and the reward of seeing audiences enjoying the band . . . so YOUR party could be night to remember!
