The Skiffle Billys are a dynamic acoustic trio playing covers ranging from Johnny Cash to Nirvana in a style reminiscent of ‘skiffle’ bands who relied on a stripped back approach, using on snare drum and assorted acoustic instruments to fit int small clubs and bars.
Their energetic dance songs combine elements of rock, pop, country, blues and jazz and are sure to get toes tapping. Band members include Manfred Bruggler on double bass & vocals, Grant Withers on snare drum, vocals & harmonica and Bob Clark on acoustic guitar and vocals. These guys are tight and their particular brand of ‘musical arson’ will burn up the dance floor like a Christmas party in Kandahar.
We provide a 3 piece instrumental (double bass, guitar & ukulele) playing songs to suit the mood sugch as ‘Close to you’ – The Carpenters, ‘Your are the sunshine of my life’ – Stevie Wonder, ‘Till there was you’ and ‘Michelle’ – The Beatles and if the post ceremony needs a little lift we can also perform a selection of Latin instrumentals.
