backstage PASS

Hello, we’re Schmo

Schmo are an accomplished and versatile guitar based rockin covers band, with a wealth of musical talent and experience.

We play pubs, clubs, weddings, functions. We pick from a huge repertoire of songs to suit most functions that want to get people up and dancing.

Audience participation a speciality to really get your celebration hopping. Full disco package with light show also available.

Schmo formed in late 2002 and were put together by Law (our drummer) as a one off for a charity event. We had all played in various bands before, but never together in this line up. Our first gig was a roaring success and we had such a laugh together that we decided to carry on.

Now we’re 18 years on and still kicking it to the massed parties of South Wales and beyond.
