The Ouse Valley Singles Club
The Ouse Valley Singles Club – Bedford Based Comedy Skiffle. Where Vaudevillian Music Hall and Working Mens Club Values Collide!
The Ouse Valley Singles Club is a comedy skiffle band from the market town of Bedford. Their musical roots are sprung straight out of the 1950’s Skiffle scene. This traditional sound is combined with the energy of Punk and the swing of Rock and Roll. And they then layer that with naughty saucy postcard lyrics in true folk story telling fashion. In doing this they have created a truly original sound. Musically they have been described as New Wave Skiffle. As “George Formby meets The Clash” and “where Vaudevillian music hall blends with working men’s club values.
Since forming in 2009 they have recored three albums, released four singles and racked up radio and newspaper appearances. They’ve also gigged steadily on the live music circuit, performing around the country at pubs, clubs and music venues. They have supported musical legends Chas and Dave as well as Pete Docherty, and warmed up for Bob Geldof and The Boomtown Rats at The Great British Alternative Music Weekender. With events such as The Great British Alternative Music Weekender, Winchesters Boomtown, the Mosely Folk Festival, Isle of Wight’s Bestival and Rhythmtree festivals and Herefordshire’s Nozstock. As well as Beer Festivals and local events such as Cambridge’s Strawberry Fair and Peterborough’s BMF (British Motorbike Federation) under their belts, they are no strangers to the Festival Circuit neither. Fitting in with audiences ranging from the Punk Crowd to Bikers. From Folk aficionados’ to Real Ale Drinkers. They go down well pretty much everywhere they play.
