Acoustic / Folk / Rock / Roots / Branches
We play original songs written by the band. The three main song writers also share lead vocals.
The story so far... long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away (Frome) Andrew Pickering and Anthony Lacny started writing and perfoming songs together under the name "Back Before Breaklfast." They continued to do so until... For reasons that they have never fully explained (alien abduction?) they stopped performing together as "Back Before Breakfast." Oh, you're still reading this? I'd better write some more. Time passed... An older and wiser Andrew Pickering managed to blag a gig at Glastonbury Festival in 2009 and decided to revive BBB (that's a quick way of writing Back Before Breakfast, just look how much space I've save by putting BBB instead of Back Before Breakfast). As it was Glastonbury they decided that a big festival required a big band and so they recruited Elliet, David, Mike and Dom to help fill the stage and make some extra noise. They all had so much fun that in August that year they were locked in a dark room on an industrial estate and not allowed out until some of BBB's music had been recorded. Jan 2010 Sharon Martin has taken over fiddle duties and will be appearing for thev first time with BBB at the Bell Inn Bath on 28th feb. To be continued.....
Rob (electric guitar) took over from Sharon in 2010 and in an effort to sound all folky again Dom took to playing flute(but still plays bass)
The difficult third continuation awaits...
The long awaited third continuation... The line up has been stable since the last update, we continue to expand and grow as not only as musicians but as performers (I'm banking on nobody actually reading this as it is turning into pretentious drivel)
Just book us, come and see us, buy a CD.
