A bunch of overweight blokes got together in the year 2000 and decided to form The Above Average Weight Band. With a variety of experience, tastes and a desire to just enjoy playing the band was born and has only broken 3 Bass Players since the original line up!
Well it is and that's why we are larger than average, eclectic tastes means the band plays a huge range of songs, from the 60's right up to the 20's - if we like it, if it's good, we'll play it, and usually much longer than your average band......
Literally that's what we do, we'e played the Grosvenor Hotel, Old Trafford, NEC (albeit the last two in the function rooms not the whole place lol) as well as 2 metre square pubs, weddings, parties, corporate, private, the only thing to date we haven't done is a Bahmitzvah, but we'd be up for it!
We've recorded and absolutely love it... with George Shilling, a renowned producer and engineer (Remember Yazz The Only Way is UP - all his recording) so you can listen to us again and again and again!
