About Us

The Familiars were formed in late 2010 by friends Nick and Steve. Since the early days we have greatly expanded our play list, and have progressed from popular pub band to emerge as an exciting new function band.

The Familiars play songs from a variety of artists such as: Prince, Snow Patrol, David Bowie, The Zutons, Madness, Kaiser Chiefs, Reef, The Rolling Stones, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, The Who, James Brown, The Police, Lenny Kravitz, The Killers, Van Morrison, Stereophonics, Stevie Wonder, etc. etc.

Based in and around Cambridge we rehearse regularly at our drummer Rob's own studio in Cambridge. The current repertoire includes rock/pop songs from the 1960s to the current day, and even a small collection of quality jazz standards (if required for special occasions such as during function meals). The Familiars predominantly play great music to dance to with a few terrific slower, yet powerful numbers (including a couple of our own original songs). Above all we want YOU and your friends, family, or colleagues, to have A BRILLIANT TIME!

The Familiars are available for pubs, clubs, weddings, private parties and other functions.
