  • Jayne Hunt, The Richard Hunt Foundation

    I am a trustee of the "Welsh Warrior"- Richard Hunt Foundation. 1 Step Beyond have played for us 3 times over the past few years and have always given a superb performance. They are a truly professional and very talented band and I would not hesitate to hire them again for future fund raising events.

  • Rob Santwris, Director Baramber Social Club, Newport - SEPT 2011

    I have booked the lads on about 8 occasions in the social club and also booked the lads when, I’ve promoted at bigger venues in the city of Newport. The band are IMO one of the best tribute bands about . I've booked “Over the years” The Bandit Beatles , The Jamm, Abba Gold , Queen on fire and The Modfathers, to name a few… 1 Step Beyond play the audience well, their energy and sound is superb and even though I must have seen and booked them on numerous occasions I never get tired of listening to the sound they reproduce. I would recommend 1 Step Beyond all day everyday and you really wont be disappointed

  • Ian Dugmore, Newbridge RFC

    I booked 1 Step Beyond to play at Newbridge Rugby Club after seeing them a few times in various establishments and really enjoyed what I saw. I have always been a big fan of Ska/2Tone and the band brought back memories of that great 80's sound. We booked them for a Friday evening in June 2010 and hoped that it would be a good night, we were wrong… it wasn't a good night, it was a great night! The band showed up nice and early and carried out a quick sound check. The club filled up really quickly with people waiting to see one of the best 2Tone tribute acts in the UK. When the band hit the stage at 9 o'clock, everyone hit the dance floor. I don't think the club had ever seen a night like it. Normally it takes a few numbers to warm the crowd up but not 1 Step Beyond, they had the floor bouncing from the off. They ripped through their set playing all the greats from The Special, Beat, Madness, Bad Manners etc. The crowd were shouting for more, which the band were more than happy to do! I cannot say enough about how great a live band they are and I will be booking them again in the future!


If you grew up in the early 80's then you'll remember that bands like The Specials, Madness, The Beat, Selecter and Bad Manners were dominating the airways. 1 Step Beyond were born out of a real passion for the music of the era and a desire to keep the memories alive. The band have had the great privilege of working with the likes of Roddy Byers of The Specials on several occasions, as well as supported The Selecter and Bad Manners and they have been putting on shows and headlining festivals around the country for many years.
