speedboatz ……………….. http://www.myspace.com/speedboatz

This 4-piece band have dedicated their lives to reproducing classic songs from the last 50 years. If it rocks, they play it, from The Jam to the Who, via The Vapours, The Clash, The Stray Cats and loads of other loud guitar bands whose names don’t start with “The”.
The ‘Boatz (as they are known to their loyal followers) were formed in the dark days of early 2003, to form a heady new mix of super fast punk-funk-guitar mayhem. Success was immediate. Having won the H.D.L.M.A Battle of the Bands in 2004, beating off competition from all over the known universe.
Like a bit of a pogo? Well, get your dancing shoes out, burn them and then head on down to the Green for a right old mosh-up!
