They all sing with great vocal harmony, which adds to the authentic 60's sound that we all know and love.
The whole pub was rocking with people dancing and singing along to this GREAT band."
"This is one of the best bands I have seen in the 50 years I have been avidly seeing and listening to bands"

Lord StJohn(Sinjun) Sipple
John is a professional drummer with a wealth of playing experience.
He is also manager of Instrumental Music Services and teaches hundreds of pupils each year.
John started playing drums at around age 10 using mum's knitting needles and a biscuit tin.
Our first rehearsal was a bit ropey, so we made him buy a proper kit.
Personally, I miss the biscuit tin.
In his spare time John is a mime artist, but he doesn't like to talk about it.
Sir Philippe deBasse-Voix
Phil has been playing for more years than his youthful good looks would suggest (what?!).
He is an experienced musician with appearances on MTV and radio 1 to his credit as well as supporting acts as diverse as YES, Jeff Lynne and the Sweet.
Infact, he has appeared on stage with many big name acts - until security threw him off.
According to Phil a bass guitar shall have no more than four strings, must have frets and if the instrument entirely obscures both nipples, you're wearing it too high.
The RtHon Pete Burrows QC
Pete is a versatile guitarist and vocalist capable of playing and singing songs from almost any genre.
His influences include Mrs Doubtfire, Biffo the Bear and many others.
Pete actually joined FAB by accident, apparently he only answered the ad for 'singer wanted' because he had an old sewing machine for sale.
He recently joined the flat earth society where he gets to meet people from all over the globe.
Baron Von Tim MacQueen
Not much is known about Tim All we know is that he had to leave Transylvania after conducting some dodgy experiments.
How much does it cost to book FAB?
It depends on a number of factors such as location, start and finish times,
early set-up, venue size and access. Please contact us for a quotation.
Do FAB play only sixties music?
Pretty much. There are a couple of seventies songs that have a sixties feel.
How long do FAB play for?
We normally play 2 one hour sets, but we are flexible with this.
What size performance area do FAB require?
Ideally a minimum of 4 x 3 metres.
More is better, and a stage is even more betterer (sic),
although we'd settle for a slightly thicker carpet!
What sound and lighting do FAB have?
We have sufficient PA equipment for most
venues and basic lighting for the band.
What power do FAB require?
Two 13amp power sockets nearby should do it.
Ideally from circuits not in use by other equipment.
Do FAB need a dressing room?
Nice but not essential, however we do need somewhere to store our cases close to the performance area.
We also require a comfy chair for our resident nurse. That's her on the scooter btw - god bless rock and roll.
