We are Earl Grey And Croquet - four young musicians and friends with a unique and original approach to music, song writing and performing.
When we began to understand the pure joy of playing music together as friends, it quickly became a way to vent feeling and emotion, that which is true, expressive and above all: exciting. Our music entertains and stimulates, taking audience’s on a trips of highs and lows, thrills and chills all with easy-to-listen-to, innovative music.
Earl Grey And Croquet have a diverse following of fans of all cultures and ages who enjoy their unique sound and energetic stage presence.
Our diverse following must be because of our eclectic mix of varying musical influences: from old school legends like Neil Young, Pink Floyd and Bob Dylan to new age bands like Kings Of Leon, aKing, Counting Crows and The Killers.
Earl Grey And Croquet’s style of music thus varies, incorporating folk with blues, alternative with psychedelic rock and other styles, all of which just seem to fit and sound right.
Over the years, our own compositions have become well known with hundreds of fans. That said, we also enjoy doing covers; songs like Lynyrd Skynyrd’s ‘Free Bird’, Bob Dylan’s – ‘Like a Rolling Stone’, and Kings Of Leon’s – ‘King of the Rodeo’.
Earl Grey And Croquet’s stage show is a professional act, led by energetic and lively Laurie Sloan, with the two brothers, Chris and Jonny Smith keeping the beat alive and moving. Dan ‘the man’ Millar on bass, keeps the songs grounded with his steady and groovy riffs. As musicians, but more-so as friends, we live, play and enjoy our music.
Earl Grey And Croquet’s music is of a kind to be shared and enjoyed. After all, in its essence, at its core, it’s just good people playing good songs – with a little intensity and emotion thrown in too. We pride ourselves in being unique and letting people enjoy us for who we are.
