Welcome to the home of The Priff Sticks, the best rock covers band on the planet!!! (obviously depending on what planet you happen to be on at the time).
The Priff Sticks were formed because we were sick of hearing and playing the same old rubbish every covers band on the pub circuit seem to do. So here we are!
Having crossed paths in the distant past, Colin, Don and Simon came together (not in a sexual sense!!) and formed the nucleus of the band some 3 years ago. After a few changes of vocalists and guitarist The Priffs have settled nicely with the present line-up. We have all been around the block a few times and have played in a variety of different genre bands, including Ska, Blues, Delta Blues, Rock and Metal. We have all been in bands that have composed their own songs but we have decided to stay a 'covers' band for the present( at the moment we're quite happy to let other bands do the hard work by writing, rehearsing, recording and publishing songs then, quite simply, nick 'em!!) but one with a difference. You will not hear the industry standards ie Sultans of Swing, Alright Now, Sweet Home Alabana et al at one of our gigs! We are not afraid to push the boundaries and play songs other pub covers bands would not even consider. We like taking risks and its paid off. Our live shows confirm that. We say 'shows' because they are just that, not just another gig. We want to entertain in all aspects of a performance; musically, visually and sweaty freaking outilly!!! We love what we do and people love what we do. Our live performances have been described as 'awesome', 'dynamic', 'electric', 'mental' and 'f*****g brilliant' and that's because we love to put on a show you will rave about and want to come back for more.
Finally, we are a peoples' band. We are just everyday fellas (albeit a bit eccentric!!) who do the same as you; get up, go to work, come home knackered etc etc but we are not up our own backsides. On stage, we have egos the size of Saturn but catch us anywhere else and you will find we will give as much time and friendliness as you want.......except if you're an asshole!!!!!!!!!!!!
