Eastern Bloc Busters

Formed out of a love of 70’s Rock and a cheeky nod to Glam Rock, Eastern Bloc-busters is a spirited band of local musicians who just like to have a bit of fun!

Dressed to impress, their set takes a tour of the 70’s Rock Classics from Sweet to Slade and The Knack to T.Rex.

Summer 2022 saw Eastern Bloc-busters with their playful stage wear and wigs and nostalgically popular 70s set take a number of local festivals by storm – Bledfest, Kop Hill Climb, Rokefest.

Ready to entertain you at festivals, pub events and parties, contact the band via Pete on 07974 343366.

Simon Gregory

Simon has been playing for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s lead singer with popular Oxfordshire rockers Innuendo, but his solo acoustic show is more eclectic and his original songs touch on love, loss, identity and family ties. If he can make you laugh, cry, or at least, think – his job is done.

The Time Travellers

The Time Travellers will take you back to a time when music was fun. Steering clear of the norm they will entertain you with renditions from Cash, Presley, Orbison, Everly’s, Beatles, to name but a few. A mix of real rock and roll, rockabilly and country delivered in their own unique acoustic style with vocal harmonies makes them a huge hit wherever they go.

Paul Edmonds & Ross Hardman

Paul & Ross met in the Summer of 2022 when Paul joined the Thame Concert Band, in which they are both members of the trumpet section. Discovering that Ross also sang and that they shared a love for the sound of voice and piano, Paul had the idea of recording an album of songs in his studio. This resulted in a collaboration which also showcases Paul’s piano playing in an eclectic mix of songs and styles.

Young Rocks

Young Rocks are an exciting and exceptionally talented local group of musicians aged 15-17yrs. They first formed in 2019, when some of them were as young as 10yrs old to perform at Music in the Park in Thame. They had a fabulous year in 2022, getting the party started on the main stage at MITP, headlining the evolution stage at Beacon Festival, performing at Thame Town Music Festival and rounding off the year at the First Thursday Music Club. They play a mixture of classic rock and pop covers, as well as beginning to write and perform their own original material. /youngrocksofficial

George Boydon (15yrs), Steven Young (16yrs) and Bradley Baker (16yrs) – Swapping between, lead, rhythm and bass guitar

The Band With No Name

Popular, good looking, and modern rock covers band. 100% local too (apart from one, maybe two of us).

Covered artists include Kings of Leon, Killers, Black Keys, Foo Fighters – plus some oldies, not that we’re old.

Hogers Wolf

HogersWolf is Andy Hoger an Oxfordshire based singer songwriter inspired by the greats of the late 1960’s and 1970’s. Drawing on Folk, Rock and Progressive styles to shape his style of song writing his sound has been likened to Crosby Stills Nash and Young, Roy Harper and Ian Anderson (if you know who these greats of yester year are?).

Based out of Chalgrove’s little home studio Andy has been producing Eps and singles that are available on all the usual streaming channels. He is gigging the local Bucks, Berks and Oxon scenes and is a regular at many of the local music venues and festivals.

Working Dog

Local band Working Dog are ready to get back to what it’s all about and rock the house. Check out their take on some big-beat, blues and blues-rock classics, as well as a few surprises along the way. Bang your head, shake a leg, it’s gonna be a Wang-Dang-Doodle all night long!

Beth Coate

I’m a 25 year old singer-songwriter from Abingdon, Oxfordshire, who writes songs about experiences, thoughts and feelings with the main genre being pop or ballads. One song of mine I have branched out and wrote the chorus in Spanish to try something new.


Kitty has held a love for performing since a young age. You will find her accompanying her vocals with her guitar at any opportunity she gets.

Last year she played at a few festivals, and this is her 1st year performing at The Thame Food Festival.

Greenvines Duo

The Greenvines are a husband-wife duo who use loop pedals, guitar and vocals to create a great energy with a compact duo setup.

The duo was formed as a result of their mutual love of playing music. From there, they have been performing together for several years now across Europe and the U.K.

They play a variety of popular genres, from relaxed jazz to upbeat tunes and everything in between! The artists in their setlist include: Stevie Wonder, Norah Jones, James Morrison, Sheryl Crow, Shania Twain and more.

Hemley Hillbillies

Not only can you shop til you drop in our Artisan Food Market – and fill you bags and tummies with delicious food. You can also sit back and listen to the fabulous Hemley Hillbillies as they sing and play. They add a wonderful touch to the market and they’ll be playing all weekend. Drop by and have a listen. Pull up a straw bale and relax.

And if you can pop a few coins into their buckets, you’ll be helping them raise money for Parkinsons too.
