The Bathtub Gin Band are a two piece hailing from the tombstone of Merseyside. A couple of years in the making, they've dusted themselves off and stumbled out of the post industrial dust bowl of St. Helens and are ready to unleash their tales of love, loss, woe and happiness to a wider audience.

Consisting simply of Vocals, guitar and skins The Bathtub Gin Band create an exciting cocktail of melody, rhythm and lyrical prowess.

Mr Andrew Bain (vocals and guitar) and Mr Matthew Wilcock (drums and percussion) absorb their surroundings and spill them out with the intent to make people dance, sing and rejoice.

Imagine If Paul Simon sported Leonards' famous blue raincoat, donned Dylans' leopard skin pillbox hat and danced Vans' Moondance whilst Tom Waits calls him "Al"...... you'll be in the same ball park.
