Welcome to The Grey Café Band

We are a four piece classic rock/pop covers band, based in and around Derby, UK and are available to play for both pub and clubs gigs, as well as private parties, social events, corporate functions.

We bring professional musicianship to any occassion, with an energetic show of classic guitar driven songs from across the past four decades.  With both indoor and outdoor PA and Lighting rigs, we have played to audiences from 20 people to nearly 1000, from small intimate venues to larger outdoor mini festivals.

The Bands History

So, there’s been a fair amount of drama and activity in the band in it’s short life time. Original members reduced, new people came and went (all for various reasons) until the first ‘gigging‘ incarnation of the band came into shape mid 2015. After some great gigs and getting our ‘toes wet’ so to speak, we had a few changes in the band again, until we arrived at the line up we have today. All fine musicians, eager to put on a great show and take Grey Café forward.
