Tomm and Hugh deliver a mighty rock experience, making more noise than you thought possible from just two people! Featuring Guitar, Drums, Bass, Keys and soaring vocal harmony, look no further than The Artichokes to provide you with unforgettable entertainment.
The Artichokes duo are a classic rock band hiding in the form of a duo. Between them Hugh and Tom cover every part. Hugh plays a self-made hybrid drum kit with his feet whilst covering bass and lead lines on split keyboards. Tomm plays shredding guitar riffs and licks, whilst both offer big rock vocals and harmonies.
In short the Artichokes are a rock band packed down to a duo. Having only started in 2019 they bring together their combined experience of years in the industry. They have already had a run of incredible gigs and are being brilliantly received and reviewed.
