Maven describe themselves as a “melodic rock band hailing from London”, and launched in 2012 with debut single, The Forgotten Ones.

Since then, the group has performed up and down the country, sharing the stage with Elliot Minor, Crazy Town, Scouting for Girls and The Feeling.

Oogie Boogie Band plays a “high energy fusion of roots, boogie, 90s hip hop and blues”.

It was set up by singer, songwriter and guitarist Ry Robson, “known for his husky tones and praised for his passionate performances”.
