Why Whatbands?

After searching for hours to find a band to play at a party, I eventually gave up as they were either too far away, wrong sort of music or already booked for the date I wanted. Whatbands takes all that hassle away.


Favourite band

Favourite national band Thunder. Local bands Robbie Gladwell band.


Last time music gave me goosebumps

Seeing my guitar coach Robbie Gladwell of Steve Harley, Cockney Rebel play live anytime. Amazing how good a musician and entertainer he is!

Why Whatbands?

Because I live, eat and breath music. The idea of making at tool that dramatically changes the way we experience new or familiar bands and music – was a journey I wasn’t going to let pass lightly.


Favourite band

This is a really difficult question for me because I like so many different genres of music from Rock, Rap to jazz and classical. If my ears like the sound of it then it goes in the playlist (Currently at sitting at 1473 songs *Gasps*) My favourite band at this moment in time is You, Me at Six and Tears for Fears.


Last time music gave me goosebumps

Last week at a festival seeing You, Me at Six and Pendulum. What an amazing evening. Music is my life, I listen to it every day without fail. But live music is just so much more of an experience. You feel the music on so many more levels. I’d live at a festival if I could :)

Why Whatbands?

I love all sorts of music; happy songs in the car, techno or disco on an awesome party and dance the night away with friends, and sometimes sad songs when I am dwelling on a lost love or difficulties in life,
Within Whatbands I am responsible for project management and expanding the platform. By doing that I am using my business background to make WhatBands a success.


Favourite music

All sorts, from Ed Sheeran to Armin van Buuren


Last time music gave me goosebumps

This summer in France while having dinner at a village party with my loved one, while the village’s local band was playing a French song
