WANTED are a 5 piece classic rock / indie band. The band have been unlucky in the past, with different members joining and leaving for various reasons. They now have a solid line-up who all work well together on stage and off. They are all acomplished musicians with similar tastes in music who all love performing to the crowds who regulary attend their gigs. They have played a variety of venues, including weddigs & festivals, more recently 'The Beer 'N' Cider Fest' at Brynffynon Llanwonno, in May this year. They were impressed so much with the bands ability and choice of music that they have been asked back to perform at the next festival August 28th.
