What Music do we play?
SOUND OF THE SUBURB plays a large variety of music, reflecting the musical background of the members. We play a large number of covers from the 1950s to the present day, and in 2008 we started adding original songs to our playlist.
We play songs from artists/bands such as The Rolling Stones, the Beatles, David Bowie, Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chris Isaak, The Clash and many many more. We play in many pubs and other venues in North-West London, and also frequently receive requests to perform at private parties.
