Their vast repertoire includes classics from artists such as Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and Elvis as well as up to date chart hits from artists including Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran and Pharrell Williams.
Bringing together a superb line-up of previously semi-professional musicians, ‘Still Posing’ are a 7 piece band comprising guitars, bass, percussion, keyboards and vocals, playing a mix of rock classics,
modern pop, blues and soulful ballads.
‘Poser’ had been performing as a band since around 1970, comprising friends and family who were wonderfully talented to form a self-indulgent Yes/Genesis type band to perform their own material. At the end of the 90’s the band reformed mainly to amuse themselves but it grew into a really great sound and they found themselves booked for quite prestigious events, not least of which was the very first Merryhill Naturist music festival, which the lead musician started with the help of BN back in 2001. Their repertoire includes covers of music by Gerry Rafferty, Joe Satriani, Steely Dan, Adele, Jeff Beck, Doobie Brothers, Annie Lennox, Spencer Davis Band, Pink Floyd, and many more.
