The band that puts the funk into function!


Shropshire wedding band:

Now taking bookings for weddings, receptions, parties and functions for 2015


'Lifeline' - the new 5 track reggae/ska EP from the
Dress Down Fridays

Available on CD from the band for £5:00p
or as a download from
Bandcamp for £3:50p


The group perform an eclectic mix of  reggae, ska, soul, blues, funk, country, rock and pop music that will bring your function to life, be it a birthday party, wedding, corporate event, college ball or a bash just for the joy of it!

The band features the vocal talents of Coil and Emily on lead, with three part harmonies to back them up. Add to this John's sublime lead guitar, sometimes sensitive, sometimes on fire, and some fantastic horn playing. Underpinning it all is the always solid, occasionally pyrotechnical, playing of Richard and Chris on bass and drums. 

You'll wonder how a five piece can supply such a huge sound! 

Please have a browse around the website and take a look and listen to what this Shropshire based group are all about!


Next public live appearance at  The Dun Cow, Abbey Foregate, Shrewsbury on Friday the 5th of June
