Now that the Cowboy Outfit are no more, there’s a new band in NWB land -The Red Herrings!

We feature former Cowboys Paul Kister on guitar and Horace Dogson on bass, and their former Winchesters buddy - crackpot keyboard player-turned-drummer Andy Stones.

We are fronted by the sensational ex-Zodiac Guy Hood on keyboards and vocals.

At our first gig, we had still not decided on a name for the band. We had been booked as The Cowboy Outfit. After packing up. We looked at the sign over the door of the esteemed hostelry in Coppull and the penny finally dropped, we became The Red Herrings!

We specialise in goodtime old-fashioned Rock and Roll and blues favourites and have gone down a treat at the all the pubs and beer festivals we have performed at.
