Twysted River logo


Available for festivals, events, parties, pub and club bookings, Twysted River are a popular, well established,  five piece band, playing an exciting,  eclectic mix of Blues Rock!!

Gritty vocals with acoustic/electric guitars, keyboard and drums.

We play a wide variety of covers from,  U2, The Doors, Ray Charles, Guns n Roses, Bob Dylan, Blues Brothers, Muse, The Rolling Stones, Moody Blues, BB King and many more. Our play list also includes some of our own original songs.

Wyld Bird Seed

Wyld Bird Seed were formed in 2012 as a direct response to none of the band getting noticed by Simon Cowell.  Their influences range from Funk, R&B and a fair amount of good old Rock n Roll!

They’ll play plenty of songs you’ll remember as well as some you may have forgotten but one thing is for sure, you’ll have a great time listening to them and it will be hard to stop those fingers and toes from tapping away.  They have a habit of paying tribute to iconic rock stars who have sadly passed away, the question is will Val Doonican appear on the Raft Race Festival set list? Come along on 6th September and find out.
