About the band

The Band was formed in 1992 with three past members of the well known ‘Thunder and Lightning’ Band Mike on Accordion, Terry on Guitar and Alan on Bass being joined by Alan on drums, Barrie on Melodeon and Jodie on Fiddle plus Callers Sandie and Gill. Music is English, Scottish, Irish and Mike’s own well known tunes.


For Ceilidhs the Band combines dances with a good old sing along of folk and contemporary songs. Over the years The Other Band has played in Southern Ireland, Brittany and in 2007 a Tour of The Isle of Wight plus various venues through the West Country including various sailing festivals.
