Hoverboards

Formed after a night of alcohol fuelled nostalgia this 5 piece band came together to play the kind of songs they listened to back in the day, and hope to inspire the kids of today with such awesome sounds! A bit of a mad bunch, each with their own specific tastes in music. But a unanimous love for the whacky and catchy stylings of Pop-punk brings them together to create tunes that leave people thinking "Great Scott!" Shortlisted for the NiGMA's 'Best Live Act' Award 2012!
