The set list for a Stereo Stories concert is a balance between light and shade,  laughter and  pathos,  tone and narrative.  And that’s just the stories.

Then we need to balance the music: some uptempo songs, some quiet songs, a touch of rock, a bit of blues, a twang of country…

Mixed in with those considerations is the coming and going of the writers/narrators, and the need for the band to sometimes change and re-tune instruments.

All in all, we’re creating a show that’s part-theatre, part-concert. Always big on story and song.

Our back catalogue of performance stories since we started in 2014 now runs to just over 70 songs. (There are a further 600 stories on this website.)
