About TC & The Alley Cats

TC and the Alley Cats are a 4-piece pop/rock covers band comprising male lead vocals/bass; female lead vocals; and guitar/lead vocals/harmonies. Already a huge hit on the venue circuit, they have years of experience in bringing the party. With a repertoire ranging from classics such as Son Of A Preacher Man and Livin On A Prayer, to modern hits from George Ezra, Ed Sheeran, Emeli Sande and Bruno Marz, this band really know how to get an audience up and rocking.  

Charismatic front-man Toby has many years of professional entertainment experience. He has played with an array of A-list talent, including Sam Smith, and has extensive knowledge of playing any gig to any crowd. Alongside him, Lauren provides top-flight lead vocals. Lauren's projects include working with the acclaimed a capella group The Haywood Sisters, as heard on BBC Sussex and Surrey Radio. She has also performed at the ‘Proms on the Roof’ festival and Ronnie Scott’s. Together they make a formidable partnership, with spot-on harmonies and impeccable playing. Add to this the third vocal from dynamic guitarist Craig Dutton, and The X Rays provide an unbeatable and unique combination of 3 lead vocals and 3-part harmonies at the front.

Also a big hit with the Forces, they have played all over the world in such diverse locations as Cyprus, Kosovo, The Falkland Islands and Afghanistan.

They also work as two separate duos – Toby and Lauren (pop/rock, or afternoon/early evening dinner jazz), and Toby and Craig.

The band can provide background music on CD and they also have their own high-quality PA and lighting. The band usually perform for three 40-minute sets.
