The Moderators

A B-Fest favourite, covering huge floor-filling anthems from the Mod & Ska world with one mission ... making sure the public gets what the public wants!

Mollie Ralph

Mollie Ralph mesmerises and draws in her audience at every gig with her soulful tone, dynamic range & subtle guitar work. The phrase "One to watch" gets thrown around quite often, yet this is undoubtedly apt when it comes to Mollie and her rapidly growing hype in the local music scene. Inspired by such classic performers as Etta James & Norah Jones, Mollie has managed to reinvigorate this soul sound with her own style and introduces it to a new audience.

Taylor Swift by Katy Ellis

All eras of Taylor Swift's music are covered by Katy Ellis, thus including the development of music genres and vocal evolution in particular. Beginning at Taylor Swift's early country twang, to her current pop music influenced voice, this Taylor Swift Tribute has a keen eye for detail that is second to none. With the finest collection of replica costumes from all of Taylor Swifts Tours, the addition of both fantastic lighting and sound equipment, this show is the ultimate Taylor Swift Tribute.

My name is Tiegan or Tigs for short, I'm 23 and I've been singing for a really long time - most of my life! Music is one of the things I use to express myself, especially my emotions. You can know that I'm sad, angry, happy or a mix of them all just by what I'm singing in the shower. I'm a local from Bingham, I've grown up here and I'm always super honoured when asked to play at local events. The style of music that I currently do is acoustic covers, most being current pop songs/ballads with a possible pop punk song thrown in.
