From South Devon, The Old Gaffers have been rocking assorted boats and all sorts of other stages since 2010. With our own brand of humour, no nonsense, no gimmicks, sea shanties and sea songs we have entertained audiences at festivals and concerts the length and breadth of the country. We’ve been on national and local TV and radio, recorded 3 CDs and featured on Steve Banks’s unique album about Napoleon’s visit to Torbay as a prisoner of war.
We have morphed into the present crew of 9 with an average age of 38 (sorry that should be waist size) and a groupie fan base of well over one; we are going from strength to strength! Over the past few years we have raised thousands of pounds for various charities including, but not exclusively, the RNLI, Devon Air Ambulance, Prostate Cancer UK, Children's Hospice SW, Help For Heroes and had a great time doing it. Are you in need of some entertainment? Do you need a bit of a lift? Then put us on your must see list!
