About the SofaKings.
Our line-up and musical influences.
The SofaKings are a 5-piece covers band, based in Blackpool, UK. Our line up consists of Vocals/Rhythm guitar, Lead guitar, Bass, Keyboards and Drums. We aim to play a fairly broad range of slightly ‘left field’ covers – the kind you wouldn’t necessarily expect but would definitely recognise. Covers of artists ranging from Echo & The Bunnymen to Funboy Three and to The Pixies are countered by more familiar tunes from Van Morrison and Johnny Cash in a fairly eclectic mix often with a largely 80s slant.
Andy provides the vocals and rhythm to the band. His current setup is a Fender Tele via a Line 6 Firehawk direct to the PA.
In between talking nonsense and polishing his latest guitar, Gaz occasionally pick up a bass and plays a few notes.
Announcement coming soon.
Keyboard & Cider
Classically trained by Les Dawson, Fingers is known to occasionally stay sober enough to play.
Pots ‘n’ Pans
