This duo of singer songwriters that for the past 6 years have performed together at various events around the country and as a resident duo abroad for TUI Holidays for the past two and a half years, working in five star hotels in Portugal, Lanzarote, Turkey and Gran Canaria. Throughout there time employed as a hotel resident duo, they have accumulated near to 350 cover songs, which they categorise and perform as theme nights throughout the week. This can include a classic rock night, party night and even a fantastic crooner swing show, but the boys main show is their Acoustic performance consisting of two guitars and two harmonising vocals.
With entangled guitar riffs and chord progressions, mixed with catchy hook lines and melodies, it makes this duo a real joy and extremely entertaining to listen to, as they create mock ups of widely known cover songs from the 50’s to the current day.
Before the act was formed, they were individual solo artists that alone, built up years of experience working the local music scenes. Chris Austwick (Oz) attended the Brighton Institute of Modern Music where he acquired a BA Hons degree in Professional Musicianship. Here he learned the fundamental skills of music performance and song composition and how to become a worthy musician within the industry. John Steer (Hatty) has worked in many a band throughout his life with musical and performance experience spanning back years to when he was a young boy. He has also been on a 9 month tour of Australia where he played some prestigious venues, gathering inspiration from the local music scene. John has also proved himself as a very competent sound technician, working the sound desk for some big bands including UB40, The Blockheads and Hard-Fi.
John Steer and Chris Austwick originally learned a two hour set of covers to play at the local bars and inns, but these days have developed a wide variety of vibrant songs performing in five star hotels around the world and even found them selves playing along side Bob Geldof and the Boom Town Rats as their support act at The Octagon Theatre in Somerset.
As composers, musicians and performing artists, they created an original and fresh sound, adding vibrancy to their work making them a truly unique duo. You can book these guys with confidence safe in the knowledge that they will put their all into each show and perform professionally making sure each audience has the best experience possible.
