Sound of the Suburb is a high energy rock'n'roll band playing a wide variety of crowd favourites primarily from the '50s to the '80s. We do play some material from the '90s and beyond and can also learn songs if requested. The songs we play are primarily designed to engage audiences and get everyone up and dancing, though we can also play quieter material or solo piano pieces if needed. We have a full sound PA and light show (PAT tested).
