THE RIFFS: were formed in 1989 and have played at many major European festivals and scooter rally’s and are DEFINITELY a scooterist’s FAVORITE. Their sound and live set is very energetic and manages to avoid the clichéd sound that many of today’s ska bands seem to have adopted. Their sound is a mix of traditional ska and reggae with a unique feel that never fails to get people dancing. They have a huge number of songs at their disposal including classic originals like Monday Morning, Dirty Bum, Blind Date, Funny Little Fella etc. and covers, played with style and energy.
NO LIP: Right, lets get this straight. No Lip play no frills, straight up, honest as you like punk rock. They don’t bother with their own stuff, it just clouds the issue, the issue being bringing certain tunes back to an appreciative audience and not trying to promote their own half arsed take on current affairs, they leave that to the “Facefuk” generation. No Lip perform heart felt renditions of PuNk RoCk classics that you’re just going to love!
MR CLEAN: Recently described as the UK’s most exciting and energetic tribute to the Woking 3, Mr Clean stand out amongst others, and are now the most sought after Jam tribute band in the country because of their authentic and energetic sound and performance! All three members of Mr Clean are massive Jam fans, and have been performing musicians, and have known each other, since their teenage years, before coming together to pay homage to one of the greatest bands the country has ever known. Playing a wide selection of singles, B sides and album tracks, Mr Clean don’t pretend or try to be The Jam, but are recognised as the ultimate tribute to the songs of The Jam because of the energy and passion they put into their live performances, something which is often lacking with other acts.

THE START: is a high energy, pro standard live band playing the best in Mod, and Ska / Two Tone with a splash of Northern Soul too. Performing music by iconic artists such as The Who, The Specials, The Jam, The Small Faces, Toots & The Maytals, The Selecter, Eddie Floyd, Gloria Jones, Bad Manners, Desmond Dekker and much more! The origins of the band go back over 30 years to four young hopefuls from Canvey Island with a love of all things Mod. The days when the Wigan Casino and the Twisted Wheel were in their prime. The days when Weller and The Specials spoke to a generation. Good music never gets old or dated. It just becomes better with age… Don’t miss the start live at the Big 7 Scooter Rally 2017
