Redemption Brothers are a 4-piece band formed in 2017, bringing together Richard, Hywel, Dave and Stuart who met as regular players and hosts of the local Folk Club. With a desire to be a little bit “different from the norm” and a keen interest in building and using DIY instruments as part of the performance, they bring a unique style and sound to their eclectic mix of classic pop and rock numbers from the last few decades.
Please, describe your act or business in on sentence:
Acoustic Folk Rock band with a twist.
What are the highlights of your career?
Playing at the Annual Fuse Festival in Lichfield.
What is your competitive advantage (special features)?
More unconventional than the standard instrumental setup which provides a more unique sound.
What kind of events do you usually serve?
Festivals. Folk Clubs. Private Functions. Weddings.
How long do you play for?
Very flexible as to how long we can play. From thirty minutes up to the standard 2 x 45 minute sets.
Do you have your own PA and lighting?
We have our own PA. QSC Digital Mixer with Yamaha Speakers.
How much space do you require?
There's four of us but we can be pretty compact as Dave the Percussionist doesn't use a standard drum kit which would normally take up the most space.
My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
If we were given about a week's notice before the event, we could almost certainly provide a worthwhile representation of a requested song.
How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
We'd generally take a half-hour break in between two 45 minute sets.
