Ian they sound excellent....but can they create a similar sound in a big tent on a camping field...?

If so I would say book them.
Alan...still plodding on....!

What would their set list look like? Cater for a range of tastes? Or are we in 'original material' territory?

Hi Ian

Very much a Newbie here, in fact don't get my Bongo until Monday, and can't wait.
May I suggest a great group for next years Bongo Bash?

Great cover band and although it says they're an indie band, they do lots of covers
and are great at getting a crowd going.

Cheers Tony

Can I make a suggestion? Folk/country/rock covers band, the Freight Train Runners:

They've played in a field at the VW Endless Summer event (but we shouldn't hold that against them ;))

I think they sound very good but I'd they don't do covers I think many people will be peeved.

I've booked Among the Echoes for Saturday night next year. They do their own stuff, AND they do covers. Examples:

Sweet Dreams (Eurythmics)
Atomic (Blondie)
Radio Ga Ga (Queen)
Pure (Gary Newman)
Lucretia (Sisters of Mercy)
Robot (Hawkwind)
I Ran (Flock of Seagulls) etc etc
