Stonepig (stonepig!) are a rock covers band from Andover, the hub of British music. Four very talented musicians and a big lad who can sing a bit, they have been going for ten+ years gigging in and around Hampshire with their own special mixture of rock and not-so- rock covers, not playing the same as everyone else, but still playing songs that will get you up and jumping around, dusting off old memories of when you were cool and music was good, reviving old classics and making them just that little bit more special, and banging out the best rocking tunes around now, and at the same time having a bit of a giggle - coz thats what its all about isnt it really?

ModCons hail from Winchester, Hampshire and are a tribute to the great music of The Jam. The band comprises 3 old Mods and 1 new one. Formed in 2019 by Lawrence (Drums) bringing together Tom (Vocals), Dan (Bass) and Charlie (Guitar). All 4 band members are avid Jam fans, 3 of whom grew up listening to the fantastic rise of the band from the late 1970s to the early 1980s when they sadly split. Charlie is 20 years old and as the son of Lawrence, has been force fed Modernist music from an early age and has now discovered the great song book of Weller, Foxton and Buckler for himself.
ModCons brings a degree of nostalgia to those who were there first time around and to those who were lucky enough not to have been born, they brings to life the great music of The Jam for a whole new audience.
THE GREEN EMBERS
Bugbear Promotions describe them as: "A soulful indie rock of an Elbow bent with U2 widescreen atmospherics... godly mcpudly... hence Ms Lauren Laverne is all over em like a rash (well, she likes 'em)." - and we quite like that!
The Green Embers are an established original rock band playing in and around Basingstoke, Winchester, Reading, Southampton and London.
The band plays original songs which are a mix of hard and soft, from ballads to heavy rock.

UNDER THE COVERS
The term “Supergroup” is much maligned, and with good reason, as most of them are rubbish. Under the Covers are no exception. Critics call them "A London-based five piece cover band who play their own upbeat take on indie, rock and pop classics from the 60s to today". The cool kids don't listen to critics, they don't listen to Under The Covers either.. Get down the front and get your groove on. No cool kids in sight..

While performing at venues all over the U.K that include the likes of, 02 Shepherd’s Bush Empire, The Wedgewood Rooms and Dingwalls (Camden), he also has a wealth of experience supporting some of the industry’s most notable names such as, Catfish and the Bottlemen, The Hoosiers and Ash.
