Hello and welcome to the Best Kept Secret web
site. Here we hope to keep you informed about the band's activities,
our current gigging calendar and any projects we are working
on. We'll also try and keep you amused with photos and information
regarding performances and events.
So who or what is Best Kept Secret?
We describe ourselves as a four-piece acoustic covers band playing
a range of popular music from the 60's to present day. Having
spent some time in the South West music scene we found that many
venues were unable to find a band capable of delivering an evening's
entertainment where the audience could sing along while the bar
staff could still hear them speak. So we created Best Kept Secret
to fill the gap. Using acoustic instruments, some hand held percussion
and four-part vocal harmonies our music can be laid back and relaxed,
but also have plenty of energy to keep an audience singing along
all night. If needed we can play entirely acoustically without
amplification. On the other hand, we can break out the loop pedal
and turn up the PA for a much bigger sound. We're very versatile.
You can find out more about each
of us by clicking on the 'Band Members'
link above and see some articles from the press in our 'In
The Press' link. The sample 'Set List'
is just an example of what we can do, there are many more, and
our 'Gallery' link is just so you
can see what a good looking bunch we are.
You can also listen to some extracts
from our Demo CD and watch some
videos of us in action in 2013.
The first clip on our 'Videos Page'
is a medley of live tracks that we performed at a private party
and gives an overview of what we do in just six and a half minutes.
If you only watch one video of us, that's the one to pick!
We also have a links page where
you can follow the links to see Best Kept Secret on other web-sites,
and find about more about us and our friends. There's also a link
to our BBC
page where you can hear a live interview and session that
we played on BBC Somerset Sound in April 2006.
Thank you for visiting our
web site! We'd be please to hear from you with your comments and
song suggestions and we all look forward to seeing you at a gig
in the near future.
