We are a female fronted band with an average age of 13 and although we have spent our lives within a couple of miles of each other we didn't know each other until recently. We all attend the same school where friends of friends started circulating rumours about each of us being skilled in our own instruments and it was therefore almost inevitable that through our social networks we would be drawn together.

A common love of rock / indie / pop music solidified us as a group in late 2019 and thanks to understanding parents (and neighbours) we now get together to write songs and rehearse as often as we can.

The Blighters, are  a five piece indie rock band from Grimsby who's influence's include  The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Oasis, Arctic Monkeys and The Who.  The band enjoy  playing Indie Rock music for all with a  mix of their own material and a few covers thrown in for good measure.

A unique sounding rock/pop trio originating from Grimsby, currently based in Leeds. They have just started out on their musical adventure, and are ready to make 2019 the year they officially start gigging up, down and across the country!

The Banquets’ sound is a simple mix of rock, blues, and pop music, and they try to maintain the great tradition of British rock. The musical influences of the band stretch far and wide, and go right back to the early 20th century blues scene. Their sound is hugely impacted by the music that has flowed out of America over the last century, and like most British music, it reflects back that sound and rubs in some northern British magic. Although on the surface they might appear to be an acoustic outfit, they aim to make as big a sound as possible. Their sound often leans towards the ecstatic, and they pursue it at every opportunity. At the heart of the band’s music is the desire to make people happy. At the end of the day, they want to have a good time and want the crowd to have a good time with them.

This year is a big one for The Banquets as they have about 20-30 songs ready to go, and will be recording in early April, with the intention of putting an EP and eventually an album out. They will be gigging across the country as they try to raise their profile, and will be putting themselves across social media. They have already produced two music videos with Entheos Media Group, and will be looking to record some more with them in the near future. Watch out and listen!
