Rock, Blues and something a bit Funky!
Covers band available for pubs, clubs and functions
If you are looking for a good mixture of rock, blues and some music to dance to at your function, then that’s what U-Turn do. We also have a specialist U-Turn Blues Band if you want specifically blues.
Formed by Neil Rigby (lead guitar) and Chris Bampton (vocals/rhythm guitar) with Tim Veysey-Smith (vocals/blues harp) – all of us regulars at the Gun & Spitroast Wednesday jam sessions. Playing at least six songs each week with many new ones, we are accumulating a large repertoire of tried and tested songs. We debuted as U-Turn at Marden Village Club on 22nd September 2018.
U-Turn have regular rhythm sections we use and play with weekly. Our gigs often feature guest musicians to add a bit of spice and specialist skills.
We are currently honing up our set list and play rock, blues and funky covers. We also offer a U-Turn Blues Band if blues is your thing. Generally we play two sets of an hour each – the first to listen to and the second to dance to. We also can do a 45 minute gig if required.
We have all our own equipment and only need a space to play and power. Full details on our Equipment page.
