Band Info

A 2004 demo attracted the attention of MAS Records, a local Record Company concentrating on exposure for local talent. "The Amateurs touch the bittersweet spirit of timeless pop, where the songs really strike gold” – Kim Tanser (MAS).

The band soon ran out of avenues in Kidderminster and had their sights on London. After recording ‘Let the Sun Shine In’ their latest demo, The Amateurs concentrated on booking gigs and getting their name further a-field.

In June 2006, after being together as a three piece for 2 years, the band recruited Rich Oliver to join on lead guitar, just in time for the Midlands Regional Final of the Emergenza Unsigned Band of the Year Competition.

The Amateurs won the Regional Final and went on to play the UK Final in July in London.

This Year The band have gone from strength to strength, playing at The Garage, The Barfly, The Astoria, The Clapham Grand and other UK premier venues.

The Four-Piece (all 26 years old) are seeking Management and exposure around the UK.
