The Start Info

The Start is a high energy, pro standard live band playing the best in Mod, Northern Soul and Ska / Two Tone. We perform music by iconic artists such as The Who, The Specials, The Jam, The Small Faces, Toots & The Maytals, Eddie Floyd, Gloria Jones, Desmond Dekker and much more!

The origins of the band go back over 30 years to four young hopefuls from Canvey Island with a love of all things Mod. The Start was born & played a lot of local gigs to a large following. The band also found national TV stardom appearing on Thames Television's kids show "Freetime". The band did eventually drift apart with members going on to work in music professionally including teaching, performing, touring and recording.

Fast forward to 2014 and from the ashes of popular Essex bands The Score and P45 rises a new version of The Start! featuring original members Brook (vocals) and Rob (Guitar)with new rhythm section Dave (bass) and Dustin (drums)

The band share a love of good music from the era where vinyl was king. The days where 7" singles would spin on an old Dansette in the corner of the local youth club. The days when the Wigan Casino and the Twisted Wheel were in their prime. The Days when Weller and The Specials spoke to a generation.

Good music never gets old or dated. It just becomes better with age...
