Our format is quite different to other artists ....... we do NOT have a preset set of songs
we do it as a 'request show' by handing out our 'music menu'

The audience can choose from a list of artists featuring
Pop, Blues, Soul, R&B, Tamla Motown, Rock 'n' Roll music from the 50s to the present

 

  

Our backing tracks are top quality, and our sound system is superb.

We take it in turn to do a song, sometimes helping each other with harmonies,

some songs of course are duets, I play harmonica on some of the blues & country songs

 

  

We can cover over 1000 songs between us, not all 'A' list songs of course, 

but it means we could play a weekly venue with a different set for the whole year

 

Book us for your Special Occasion, and choose the songs you'd like us to do for you

 

 

 

some of the artists we cover

Abba, Adele, Alan Jackson, Alicia Keys, Amy Winehouse, Anastacia, Aretha Franklin

BB King, Beatles, Bee Gees, Bob Dylan, Blues Brothers, Bryan Adams, Bryan Ferry, Buddy Holly

Cher, Chris Rea, Chuck Berry

Diana Ross, Dionne Warwick, Dire Straits, Dirty Dancing, Dolly Parton

Dobie Gray, Donna Summer, Dr.Hook, Drifters, Duffy, Dusty Springfield

and here's what I was doing before Past & Presently

 

 
 
Louise & I have been Past & Present duo for 14 years
and we've done over 700 gigs together
but now Louise has moved to Dubai
our final gig at the Dog & Pheasant Ashton on Saturday 22nd April was amazing
 
     
 
a packed pub and fabulous atmosphere
all our regulars came out to say goodbye to Louise
and lots of friends travelled to the Top Dog from other areas
Louise did encore after encore after 2 & a half hours non-stop
(look at the time on that clock)
Lots of love and best wishes Lou, we'll all miss you

Our first gig as Past & Present was in August 2002

A really fantastic night.  Thank you so much everybody.
