For those who are seeing and hearing us for the first time, Smoke & Mirrors came into being during the summer of 2014, with the current personnel having many years of experience in musical/ stage performance. We are a covers band, with a tendency towards the lighter, more melodic and up-tempo side of rock – plenty of familiar songs, some not so familiar, and a wide repertoire to accommodate most venues and occasions – we are available for parties, receptions, pubs and clubs and various organised events.
The last year or so has seen the band make positive musical progress with Katherine on lead vocals taking on a more significant "starring" role on stage, and John and Nigel keen to become more involved vocally too, giving us a wider scope and variety of songs. INfluence include artists such as Fleetwood Mac, the Pretenders, Abba, Kirtsy MacColl and Cyndi Lauper - We like to stay faithful to the songs and our rock 'n roll roots.
The love and enjoyment of performing is what it’s all about for us!
So here’s the line-up:
Katherine on vocals, Howard on bass guitar, John on drums, Nigel on lead & rhythm guitars/vocals and Steve on keyboards/vocals
We hope you enjoy our music as much as we do – see you soon!
