and upset that shape our days. Queen Elvis fearlessly tackle the discord and conflict of modern life and its
inherent politics.

This innovative pair are now working with a full band:-
Geoff Ward on saxophone and mandolin
Walter Feitcher on fretless bass
Tom Cody percussionist extraordinaire.
The band has gigged extensively on the festival circuits
of Ireland and Europe including Italy, Germany and Switzerland.
