The Occasional Orchestra’s distinctive, largely acoustic six-piece sound is often described as ‘indie/pop’ or ‘alternative/pop’.

Their melodic and often energetic songs, intricate vocal harmonies, strong rhythm section and enthusiastic delivery ensures the band remain firm festival favourites. Based around the pen of singer song writer Darrell Mitchell (ex Home and Abroad), the songs provide vivid imagery of life in the UK past and present, with interesting and unusual themes that resonate with audiences and attract attention both on stage and on the radio.
