Tony Hassall and Jon Fellowes met studying Popular Music at the University of Chester, and immediately bonded over their shared interest in facial hair, fine tweed waistcoats and the collected B-sides of 70’s Swedish pop sensation, Abba.
Upon graduation, both embarked upon their respective careers as professional musicians. This lead to them playing in foreign and exotic countries, backing award-winning artists, teaching in public & private schools and playing on records receiving airplay all over the world.
Independently, they have played at venues like the Liverpool Cavern Club, London Hippodrome Casino, Manchester United’s Old Trafford Football Stadium, Cardiff Millennium Stadium, Aintree Racecourse, BBC Media City Salford and toured in the state of Minas Gerais, south-west Brazil. They have also shared bills/supported the likes of The Kooks, Paul Carrack, Peter Hook and The Light (Joy Division) and Albert Hammond Junior (The Strokes).
Now reunited, and playing a select set of their favourite acoustic pop/rock covers, they utilise all this collective experience (and healthy sense of humour) to make your event the best it can possibly be!
Available for Weddings, Birthday Parties, Corporate events and any other functions.
