Kevin Pallot is a well known singer and songwriter who has worked with Bob Vincent as a duo, The Big Hellos. Their CD Good Buy has a home in the affections of many collectors of quality local music, as do the memories of their many fantastic shows. He has supported Joan Armatrading, played with Nibs van der Spuy, and in 2006 recorded his brilliant album Let Yourself Fall.

Kevin Pallot and The Pinnacles band members are Kevin Pallot (vocals and guitar), Paul Bisson (lead guitar), Jason Wyatt (bass guitar), Paul Matthews (keyboards and saxophone) and Tim Bryon (drums).

Kevin and the band are currently in the studio with Jono Rothwell recording a five-track EP which will be released this summer. They have a busy schedule for the summer ahead with performances at Jersey Live, Oxjam Music Festival, The Blue Note, The Star, The Ha’penny Bridge and The Samares Summer Festival among the highlights. They will also be supporting Nibs van der Spuy at The Jersey Arts Centre on October 7th.

Lloyd Yates band members are Lloyd (vocals and guitar), Mehdi Padidar (guitar), Scott Keane (bass), Paul Olivier (percussion) and Alex Moody (drums).

Lloyd is a singer/songwriter with true star quality. His distinctive, soulful vocals and subtle, inspired way with melody is perfectly complemented by a band that is at the top of its game. By bringing aspects of African dance rhythms, jazz, funk, soul, and folk idioms together into an impressively united performance, they have gained a reputation as one of the most exciting live bands in the island. They have been recording with Cowshed Acoustics, and the feverishly anticipated results of those sessions will be available soon.

The Freewheelers is the band project of three musicians who each have towering reputations in their own right.

Jerseybob is a composer of modern folk and love songs who is probably the most well-known and recognisable musician at work in the island today. He has released an album pretty much every year since he started on his musical journey, and they are all fresh, interesting and beautiful to hear.  The Freewheelers, with lineup completed by guitarist and singer Andy Coleman, and bassist Chris Herbert, began as a tribute to Bob Dylan that has since evolved into a showcase for the songwriting talents of these superbly talented musicians.
