Biography

Available as a trio, quartet, right up to a six piece band, Unstrung Heroes transform a wide range of classics, spanning eighty years of music from the nineteen-thirties to the present day, with their soulful retro sound.

Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, The Beatles, Amy Winehouse and Frank Sinatra are all thrown into the mix, and the result is a soul casserole fit to feed any audience.

Most recently Rob Stringer appeared on the latest season of Peaky Blinders

Reviews

"Unstrung Heroes played our wedding at the end of May. They were absolutely brilliant from start to finish! They kept the crowd going for the whole set and reacted well to the general vibe of the wedding; everybody was up dancing and singing along throughout. I did a specific request for a personal song for the first dance to be played but not the whole song (as it is not well known and wouldn't have gone down well with our guests) however they mixed it perfectly with one of the existing songs on their setlist and just made it work! We could not recommend them enough; they truly made our night and our first dance special." Ms Giverin - May 2019
