Crowded Scouse - Tribute to Crowded House
Alexander's Live, Chester.
This event is for over 18s only - No refunds will be issued for under 18s.
Joe & Mark had been playing in bands together since their teens, and always been Crowdies fans, so it seemed a natural thing when they gave up playing their own material to begin playing acoustic nights as “Crowded Scouse”.
They were soon joined by Big Al on guitars and continued as a trio until Vin (a self confessed Finnatic!) who had been to see the Scousers a couple of times, offered his services as Bass player “Oh and I know drummer as well”. Enter Shoeless MJ!
The band debuted on one of the main stages of Mathew Street 2003 and then progressed to become regulars at the MSF and all the major tribute venues up and down the country. When the Scouser's opened MSF 2005 from the Pier Head stage, you could hear them in Birkenhead (we know because a guy who was drinking in the "Magazine"at the time emailed us!)
There have been a few comings and goings in the guitar dept of CS over the years, and the position is currently held by the wonder kid that is big haired Ian.
The great thing about the Scousers is, they are genuine Finn fans, it’s all about playing music they love for other fans, so there are no dodgy accents or wigs! What you do get is great music, with a strong emphasis on fun and audience participation.
