Comprehensive repertoire lists, audio, video & testimonials are available for the Alternative Party Band. Booking their standard show at standard prices – but for an additional fee – they can also supply a disco with DJ which provides extra sound & lighting back up for those larger or longer events.
For those of you who might be interested in the other side of the band – their new single SKELETON BOB has been released and has been played by FRANK SKINNER on National radio. Their debut album As If To Say was digitally re-mastered for it’s 25th anniversary. The band is now predominantly (but not strictly) classic not cheesy) 70s & 80s covers (& definitely NOT a tribute band!)
The new revised set continues to go down a storm, as the band introduces more songs …they had the crowd singing along at the tops of their voices to Dexy’s “Geno” and everyone let themselves go to U2’s “I Will Follow” – made all the more exciting by Tarn’s new authentic sounding delay pedal (we’re calling her the Corner – get it?) BUT – there’s still the old dance favourites like “Long Train Running” & “Groovejet” + that Snow Patrol song “Chasing Cars” that was recently added.
Alternative Party Band – Skeleton Bob
Skeleton Bob: The new “Alternative Party & Event Band” – which replaces the current Party Band that Objayda have been performing for nearly 30 years – is now launched. The aim is to return to the reason that they started out as a band – “fun” – which seems to have got lost in the mists of time. Tim and Tam both still love their music & enjoy performing to an appreciative audience.
They performed under this guise at a 50th birthday party and can report people dancing with “wanton abandon” to the likes of A Forest (Cure), Jean Genie (David Bowie) & Don’t Stop (Fleetwood Mac). The audience were having a great time & so was the band! The “Alternative Party Band” continues to go down a storm. A synthesizer player joined the band for that extra edge.
Set List: Jean Genie (David Bowie). A Forest (The Cure). Brass In Pocket (The Pretenders). Going Underground (The Jam). True Colors (Cyndi Lauper). Love Will Tear Us Apart (Joy Division). So Lonely (Police). I Love Rock & Roll (Joan Jett). All Day & All Of The Night (Kinks). The Look Of Love (Dusty Springfield). Basket Case (Green Day). She Sells Sanctuary (The Cult). I’ll Stand By You (The Pretenders). Hong Kong Garden (Siouxsie & The Banshees). Come Up & See Me (Cockney Rebel). Don’t Stop (Fleetwood Mac). Because The Night (Patti Smith).
