them already. In order of appearance….

The Shindigs are one of the most versatile cover bands around. Female & Male vocals
combined with superb musicianship; they cover a breathtaking range of material spanning
five decades of Rock, Pop, Funk, Soul Classics, along with a few choice surprises that will

A mixture of soulful vocals, urban hip-hop lyrics, heavy bass lines, rocking guitar sets
and banging beats, all combine to create an act that is more than impressive. They are a
group that we love, and we know they are destined for HUGE things very soon! So, you

headline our leaving ball, and not only that, they will be hitting us with one of their amazing
DJ sets. We can’t thank them enough for agreeing to do this, and we know that they will
keep you all well and truly entertained. You can listen to one of their DJ sets by clicking
