Dutch Courage at Guilfest - young local band plays to the masses!

Dutch Courage - a familiar term but not such a familiar sound perhaps!

Dutch Courage are a local Guildford 'East-side' group consisting of ..

Jamie Hossain - Guitar

Jack Bridgland - Drums

Alex Regan - Guitar/Vocals

Barney Packer - Bass

All four boys are at George Abbot school and have been playing together for a couple of years - not that they get too much time to practice what with exams etc. going on right now - however they are unusual in that they do write their own material and frankly it is really good!

They list their influences as ...


Kings of Leon,
Gaslight Anthem,
Two Door Cinema Club,
Biffy Clyro


So…. if you mix all of that lot up you'll get some idea!

The bands big break this year is a spot at Guilfest - it's their very first time, in fact it only about their fifth public appearance but the boys are totally up for it and hopefully won't need to resort to ... dutch courage.

If you are intending to visit this year, you can get discounted tickets by clicking on a link on their fan page (in order to secure the gig, the boys had to commit to selling a quantity of tickets so please do book via their link if you haven't already).

I believe they are playing at around 9.30 on the Friday, but you can check on their Facebook Fan Page here, nearer the time.

Hope to see you there !!
