Idle Hands are an electro-acoustic duo who play a range of popular, classic and memorable songs from the 1960's to present day.
We don't use backing tracks - percussion is provided by means of foot pedals which are connected to an electronic drum unit, set to an authentic drum sound.

95% of the songs we play are cover versions.

What do we mean by electro-acoustic? Although we use acoustic guitars, they are plugged into a PA along with our vocal mics and the drum unit in order to amplify our sound. For some parts of songs we use effects pedals to enhance our sound.

Idle Hands are:
Clive Edmondson - Vocals, Rhythm Guitar and Percussion.
Ross Griffiths - Vocals, Lead & Rhythm Guitar.

Take It Easy - The Eagles
Losing My Religion - REM
