Blue Trousers

Bringing a fresh approach to the covers act format, Blue Trousers play original, quirky and contemporary arrangements of classic songs from the fifties to the present day. Perfect music to accompany a dinner, reception or ceremony, their music is subtle without being forgettable, sophisticated without being conventional, and always impeccably performed.

With a decade writing recording and playing in some of the best indie and alt-folk acts behind them, they bring a new perspective to the wedding and function music scene, with imaginative and creative takes on unexpected songs and the most current chart hits, along with tasteful covers of classic tracks.

If you’d like to hear your favourite songs, but with a twist, or your music tastes are a little more on the eclectic side, Blue Trousers are the ideal act for you, with their huge repertoire of lost classics, album tracks and hidden gems. You can certainly expect the unexpected from these witty, creative and sophisticated musicians.
