The Buicks are a Four Piece Band and was put together by Andy in 2014 and play some great venues, ie Vintage Festivals, Rock & Roll Clubs to Social Club and Pubs. The front man of The Buicks Andy had been playing rhythm guitar for 16 years when he decided to form a band called Memphis 56 . Charlie is Andy's right hand man. With a fantastic ear for music, he can play different styles and his harmonies on vocals make him a must for Andy's bands. Marc has been Drumming for Andy for about two years now & is also the drummer with The If I Can Dream Band. Steve Bee has played Double bass for many years now and is very experienced and versatile player.
Vintage are a young three-piece Rock and Roll band that never cease to amaze their audiences. To hear such classics from a band so young is awesome - the 50's and 60's are being revisited...
They've been gigging live now for around four years and play an array of hits from Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Bill Hayley, Eddie Cochran and Chuck Berry - to name but a few.
