The latest act to be added to the line-up at The Big Meat is a great local 4 piece – Contraband, playing their own take on Country music with a UK slant.
We’ve been speaking to Mike over at Contraband and he’s told us a little more about the band –
“Contraband are an unlikely bunch from all walks of life who met a few years ago in a pub in Guildford, Surrey. Some of us wanted to write great new songs. Some of us wanted to play a new style of country – British country. Some of us wanted to order from the food menu. Despite this, the band carried on rehearsing some songs and found that actually, they quite liked each other’s company and gelled musically (and once accidentally when someone left a superglue lid off). A year on, and the Band set off on the road to gigging and since then have been performing their original material all over the place, mainly with consent.”
