The Machine Shed Band

The Machine Shed Band are a Cambridge based  Rockblues, soul and rock’n’roll band. For the last twenty years we have been privileged to play live at venues up and down the country,  including music pubs, clubs and festivals. We're also available for private parties, anniversaries, birthdays and even rock’n’roll weddings. You name it, we'll do it!
A big thank you to all the many people who came to see us in 2019, and this year, your support is really            appreciated.

So, if you were movin' and groovin' in the 60's, 70's and 80's then get out of your armchairs and come and see us; we're still playing that exciting stuff, making you feel alive and good about yourself.  And if you're younger come and see us and see what you been missin'.  Come and rock with us!

We as a band weren't together then, however we've been playing this music we love for a long while now.  So come and listen to amongst others our versions of  'Otis Redding',  'lynyrd skynyrd', 'ZZ Top',  'Wilson Pickett'.  'Rolling Stones'.  'Beatles'.  'Aerosmith'.  'Prince'  'Faces'.  'BB King'.  'Clapton' and many more.  We're loud and its party time!

UNFORTUNATELY ALONG WITH THE REST OF THE COUNTRY, ALL OF OUR GIGS AS OF APRIL ARE CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE;  DUE OBVIOUSLY, TO THE 'LOCKDOWN' AS A RESULT OF THE CORONA VIRUS.  WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ALL AGAIN WHEN THINGS IMPROVE.  IN THE MEANTIME LOOK AFTER EACH OTHER WHERE YOU CAN AND STAY SAFE.  MSB.
