Remember when pub bands were live and loud, as were your mates, and the Sunday session was the weekend event ?
Old Skool play all the classics from the 70’s till now (though most of the good music has already been written).
John and Garry are survivors in a fickle industry and have been playing together for more than 40 years.
They know each other backwards and this reflects in the performance - solid and tight with a great selection of music.
Both are accomplished musicians and present a professional show with dynamic guitar and vocals with the raw sound of a live band, without the over production of the live music scene today.
These are songs everybody knows and has a special memory of, delivered with the respect these hits deserve.
