Our format is quite different to other artists ....... we do NOT have a preset set of songs
we do it as a 'request show' by handing out our 'music menu'

The audience can choose from a list of artists featuring
Pop, Blues, Soul, R&B, Tamla Motown, Rock n Roll music from the 50s to the present



Our backing tracks are top quality, and our sound system is superb.

We take it in turn to do a song, sometimes helping each other with harmonies,

some songs of course are duets, I play harmonica on some of the blues & country songs



* Past & Present duo Chris & Louise - Live at the Crown Bredbury 2016 *


We can cover over 1000 songs between us, not all 'A' list songs of course,

but it means we could play a weekly venue with a different set for the whole year

see our song list

Book us for your Special Occasion, and choose the songs you'd like us to do for you
