Rolling into Autumn…

Is it really Autumn already?! We have an amazing set already constructed, with enough material already for a rolling setlist….plus lots of other new ideas we are working on in the studio at the moment.

We begin the Autumn with a private function in Shropshire on Saturday 19th September, before heading back for more studio time, and then the ‘proper’ run of Autumn dates begins in earnest on Saturday 24th October at one of our old favourites – The Olde Queens Head in Halesowen. Check out our upcoming shows on here.

We are available for shows of all shapes and sizes throughout the remainder of 2015 and into 2016.

YouTube Channel

We are pleased to announce the launch of our new YouTube channel. To start we have uploaded some films from our appearance at Netherton Carnival. Please subscribe as more footage will be added soon.

Summer Update

Sorry for the lack of updates folks but we have been busy learning and rehearsing bundles of new material ready to present to you in Autumn 2015 and beyond. It’s really shaping up nicely with lots of variety and trust us when we say a lot of what we do is not already out there on the circuit!

Gig bookings are flying in at the moment – keep your eyes peeled on the gig listing on this website. We can’t wait to be ‘out there’!

Wow!

What a way to launch our live work with our 45 minute showcase performance at Netherton Carnival on Saturday 4th July. If there had been a roof we would have blown it clean off. Reviews from the audience have been amazing, with enquiries regarding bookings coming in thick and fast. Highlights – too many to mention! Perhaps the sing-a-long of ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’, the proto-progressive middle section of ‘Jump’ or the audience being up dancing and singing along to all of the songs! Perhaps the most telling tale of how well we had gone down was the small group of young girls singing ‘Livin’ On A Prayer’ half an hour after we had finished!?

See you soon!

Just A Day…

We are 24 hours away from making our live debut at Netherton Carnival. We will be on stage at 3pm on Saturday 4th July and it would be fantastic to see many of our supporters there. We have been rehearsing hard over the last few weeks and have assembled a lively fourty five minute set for your enjoyment – it should be good. Hopefully it will not be as hot as over the last few days too!

Debut Live Performance – Saturday 4th July : Netherton Carnival

We will be making our live debut at Netherton Carnival on Saturday 4th July. We will be taking to the stage at approximately 3:30pm for a 45 minute set. It would be great to see many familiar faces out there to support us – we have got some amazing material and this is just going to be a taster of what The Usual Suspects are about.

It is a great event that both Kate and Luke have previously appeared at with The Anthems, and a great family day out. Why not bring a picnic and the whole family?

Open for business…

We are now taking bookings for dates from September 2015 through into 2016. If you’re interested in bringing our show to your venue then please get in touch either via our Facebook page or using the Contact form on this website.

We are also available for weddings, private parties, etc. No occasion too big or too small.

The Usual Suspects

‘The Usual Suspects’ are a female fronted, five piece band playing a range of rock and pop music from the 1950’s to the present day. We cover artists as diverse as Bon Jovi, Queen, Muse, Cher, Tina Turner, Bryan Adams, Pink, Journey, Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Wonder….the list goes on!

The lineup of the band is as follows :

Kate Peacock – Lead Vocals

Luke Timmins – Guitar / Vocals

Paul Morgan– Bass Guitar / Vocals

Jamie Morgan – Drums / Percussion / Vocals

David Handy – Keyboards / Vocals

You may recognise some of the names above as top local musicians from successful acts such as The Commandments, The Anthems, Cover Up and No Questions Asked with many years of gigging experience between them.

We are now booking for Autumn / Winter 2015 and through into 2016 and are keen to appear at your venue with our exciting new lineup. Normally we would play two one hour long sets as part of our show, although we can be flexible dependent on your needs. We provide full PA and lighting, with our own engineer and come with a vast wealth of gigging experience.
