Hi Folks, we are a trio playing acoustic, foot tapping tunes, with vocal harmonies through a not too loud PA. No ten minute sit down dirges. We come from where they make wagons, hence Wagontown.The videos on You Tube are unplugged versions of some of our tunes and have been posted just to give an idea of what we're about.

We consist of Tel (Double Bass/Vocals/Harmonica), Stu (5-string Banjo/Guitar & vocals) and Steve (Guitar/Mandolin/Vocals).

Check out our varied setlist from Earl Scruggs/Duelling Banjos to Dubliners/Pogues/Beatles/Queen/Green Day/Motorhead/Tom Jones/Oasis/Red Hot Chili Peppers/ oh and Human by Killers..lol..all played in the electrifying Acoustic Banjo/ Mandolin style. We dont use backing tracks, or any other tech wizardry, what you see is what you get.

A review..
Wagontown - A big thank you!

Playing the Wellington on Friday in Preston! come and see the NW premier bluegrass band!

These lads played a cracking show at a theme day where I work . I would like to thank Wagontown for a job well done . A re booking is being organised and several of the staff are looking at the idea of having them as a wedding band and others are thinking about booking for their own celebrations (birthdays etc!)

The special needs audience absolutely loved them one or two are still talking about it a week later, music breaks down so many barriers, I see it everyday at work.... needless to say a couple of audience who rarely communicate were certainly communucating that day.... I saw a manager who is hard as nails having to leave for a few minutes to compose herself as a client she has worked with starting mouthing words of a song and raising their arm in time with the music, this was a major breakthrough for us!
A job well done! Thank you Tel and the lads

What a night

A big thanks to Wagon town who played last night at Ye olde Fighting Cocks, we combined it with our St Paddies night party, the place was Rocking and not to loud, I have 19 Bedrooms located near to the bar so noise is always an issue, However EVERY guest was down dancing and singing along to them.

Guys you are great value for money and I would recommend you to any pub, club or hotel, quite simply your the best, see you boxing day for a party night, and next year

Tony
