2 Of Diamonds

With 2 of Diamonds you get all the advantages of a duo : limited space requirements, the ability to move around a venue, able to play with or without amplification; with a surprisingly full sound and a massive range of materials going through songs from the present day right back to the 1960s, instrumental covers, Irish and Scottish jigs, jazz and classical pieces.

3 Of Clubs

Our three piece band consists of Rob, Sally with Justine on vocals too. This enables the musicians to have more complex vocal harmonies and that slightly larger sound than the 2 of Diamonds can achieve.  The material covered by this band again covers a large range of songs and contrasting  styles of music.

Queen Of Hearts

Our function/pub band can consist of anything from 3 to 5 members with prices varying according to how many of us are playing. The 3 person version has guitar, violin and drums with twin vocals playing a range of covers from the 70s, 80s, 90.s and the present, irish songs and jigs guaranteed to get people up, dancing and singing along. In the 5 person version it consists of:  Guitar/s Drums/ Keyboard / Violin / Viola /  along with  3, 4 and 5 part vocals giving this band an amazingly full sound.

The Jokers

Our Ceilidh band primarily focuses on traditional folk music from Ireland, Scotland and the North of England often known as jigs.  These folk tunes are ideal for getting a party started as they have the ability to engage and capture the attention of your audience of guests and you can’t resist tapping or clapping along to them, no matter what your age or usual musical tastes. We can also provide a caller for that full Ceilidh experience.

BlackJack Theatre

Based on almost ten years experience performing in South West France to local ex-pat communities,we are now also able to offer Murder Mysteries. Many of you will have attended or taken part in a murder mystery at some point. This is our normal format: a team of professional actors will perform a scene for you which leads to the murder.

“A great big thank you for your delightful music for Burn’s Night. So many people were singing your praises!”


Can’t wait for these two again. They were AMAZING on New Year’s Eve.
