THE HAT BAND…my duo formed for entertaining in Denmark.

When Ivor left our musical duo Two and a Hat we had already established a firm link in Denmark for entertaining holiday audiences on the west coast of Jutland during the late Summer months.

I was fortunate in finding a suitable replacement in James and he and I formed THE HAT BAND in 2000 which has been performing in Denmark every year ever since.

James left me for family reasons in 2012 and my old chum Bing joined the duo and THE HAT BAND continues to perform to Holiday audiences in Denmark on the island of Rømø and at The Victoria Cafe in Tønder during The Tønder Festival every late August.

We play a vast array of songs…we are both Troubadours…our instruments are guitars, Accordion, Keyboard, Flute and Harmonicas. Our songs are both well-known and originals…a nice mixture.
We can play long sets and keep our repertoire varied and mixed. We both sing and harmonise well too…and, most importantly we really enjoy entertaining!
