Thrill Collins are a skiffle trio based in Cheltenham. They have spent the last two years gradually reworking the golden age of pop to work for a contemporary 1950s audience. The band only realised this when it was far too late so decided to stick with turning the planet's most epic pop songs into acoustic ditties performed with just three voices and instruments.
Thrill Collins have already played all over the world including New York, London, Paris, Milan, Berlin, Budapest, Prague and Witney. They have performed alongside artists such as The Wurzels, Zero 7, Frank Turner, The Hoosiers and even Wagner from The X Factor, amongst others. They have numerous video documentaries on YouTube evidencing these claims and would dearly love to set up a one-day skiffle festival in their hometown.
The band have two EPs out, recorded by legendary British producer George Shilling (Blur, Texas and James Brown). They feature such classics as Michael Jackson’s ‘Black or White’, Shaggy's "It Wasn't Me" and the Backstreet Boys "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)"
