The Cadavers

The Cadavers are me and my mate Den. We’re two extremely good looking men. He’s the small one, and I’m the big one. We play acoustic covers covering all kinds of styles and eras. We are clean, punctual, and come with all our own equipment so we can play at any time and any place.

Here are a couple of tasters of how we sound – and at the bottom of the page is a non-exhaustive list of the songs we play, just so you get the flavour. We’re pretty confident you’ll not find another acoustic act who’ll cover the Housemartins and Led Zep in the same set, but aside from that it’s wall to wall acoustic versions of classic songs from the last five decades.

If you’d like to book us, you’re best off messaging us via our Facebook Page – and by ‘us’ I mean in all likelihood Den, as I’m a bit rubbish at these things. Our most usual setting is relaxed, music-friendly pubs – but we’ve played barns, fields and weddings!

If you’d like to see us, check out our gig schedule here (or again refer to the Facebook Page).
