Singer/bassist (Howard) and guitarist (Keith) - both formerly of 80s rock band Liaison - renew their musical relationship in this energetic and fun acoustic duo. Performing a variety of hits and album tracks from the last 5 decades, the pair mix dual vocals with acoustic and bass guitar. Both talented singers, they share the lead and backing vocal duties during their diverse set of rock and pop covers.
Mouth On A Stick specialise in the eclectic. They are not your average duo - their set consists of a carefully chosen mix of songs from the 1950s through to the present day. Their song choices vary from award winning pop singles like Elbow's One Day Like This and Somebody That I Used To Know by Gotye, to pop/rock anthems such as Queen's Radio Ga Ga and Behind Blue Eyes by The Who. There are also some obscure gems that you will undoubtedly remember but rarely hear these days - Brian Protheroe's Pinball and Love The One You're With by Stephen Stills being two such examples. And just to keep you on your toes, there are a few classic album tracks like Fleetwood Mac's The Chain, from their million-selling Rumours album, or Pink Floyd's Shine On You Crazy Diamond.
