With spring soon upon us, thoughts of a “great line up” will be crossing many a committee and promoter up and down our green fair isle.
Every Village, City and Town is joining the trend and benefiting from the enthusiasm and popularity of a Festival, all with aspirations of growing popularity year on year, from small acorns and all that!!
But what makes a Great Festival Band?
Bands that appeal to a wide range of people, lively, fun and good to sing along to. Something a bit different to add some diversity to your event. With budgets in mind, the size of band will make a difference.
*Warning* Biased opinion follows!! 😉
Every Festival needs a great Rock n Roll Band!!
Wild are a Revved up 50’s Rock n Roll Band, like a “Now that’s what I call Rock n Roll” Album, every song is hit with the crowd, From Elvis to Buddy Holly and The Ramones to The Stray Cats, with even a bit of Glam Rock thrown in. There is plenty to entertain.
With Cool 50’s styling, that great Gretsch Guitar, Double Bass and Drum combination Wild truly look and sound the part. This s not a thin busking side show, this is a full on sound that holds its own on any stage.
Wild are also available as a five piece “WildXL5” with the addition of Sax and Piano for and even bigger sound!
We have had the pleasure of playing a wide range of shows over the last 20 years. This year we return to Derry/Londonderry Jazz and Swing Festival for our 15th year. We had the experience of taking WildXL5 to Kharkov in the Ukraine playing to 20,000 people in the awesome Gorky Park.
