Beggars & Thieves

Beggars & Thieves are an excellent melodic rock band, with huge harmonies, that had some minor success in their early days, but failed to become major stars.
Formed in New York City by successful session vocalist Louie Merlino and guitarist Ronnie Mancuso. They rounded out the band with former Ozzy Osbourne bassist Phil Soussan and drummer Bobby Borg. After only six live shows they were signed to Atlantic records and released their sensational debut album.

Hobo Jones & the Junkyard Dogs

Hobo Jones & The Junkyard Dogs are one of the most unique musical acts on the circuit today. Covering a wide range of music from genuine 1950's skiffle such as Lonnie Donegan, through Led Zeppelin & The Doors, via Johnny Cash to modern classics such as Green Day, Motorhead and even The Pussycat Dolls. Formed in 2003, the band was a backlash against the standard pub rock bands that seemed to be playing all the same covers in all the same venues, all in the same style.

Hobo Jones and the Junkyard Dogs

Hobo Jones & The Junkyard Dogs, fast becoming national festival favorites, are the Godfathers of the musical genre 'Skunk' - Skiffle/Punk.
The basic core of three members: Hobo Jones (Tea chest bass, Banjo, Gob Iron), Miser Bill (guitar & Kazoo) & Wino Tyrone (Washboard, pots, pans & kitchen sink) are one of the most unusual and energetic acts playing in the UK today.
They will skiffle almost anything (including The Pussycat Dolls!) and with seriously funny banter between/during songs...
