Welcome to the official web site for The CLAN.
Good Time Feel Good Rock!
"We're gonna have a party and we hope you'll stay" - We can't really say it any better than that. We are a UK based three-piece rock band delivering what we call Good time Feel good Rock for all types of audience. We combine passion, enthusiasm and fun for what we hope will be a memorable night out. After all - Rock and Roll was never really meant to be taken too seriously.
Formed by experienced and well-respected musicians, The Clan play their own rock classics with a sprinkling of rock covers by the likes of: ZZ Top, Status Quo, Dire Straits, T.Rex, Robin Trower and occasionally a few unexpected but good ones as well :-) in a stage show in which we strive to entertain and help everyone to go home happy.
Since coming together mid 2010 The Clan has played many gigs supporting major acts such as Wshbone Ash, LA Guns, Uli Jon Roth, The Virgin Mary's, Raven ,GMT (featuring ex Gillan members Bernie Tormé and John McCoy), Martin Turner (ex Wishbone Ash), Blaze Bayley (Wolfsbane/ex Iron Maiden), Hand of Dimes, and the legendary Sweet.
In addition we have also opened shows for several of the UK's top tribute acts including The Bon Jovi Experience, DIIO, Sack Sabbath, Mentallica and Hi-on Maiden.
The band have played numerous festivals including Cambridge Rock Festival, Fakefest Festival in Birkenhead Mearfest , Out of the Ashes festival, Welsh Bike show and also topped the bill at Llandudno Music Festival..
2019 (the band's 9th year) is shaping up nicely with more support slots and festival dates already booked. We will of course also continue to play the Pub venues where Rock music is appreciated and already have such venues included in this year's bookings.
let's just Keep on Rockin'
Reviews - What others say
"The Clan played at our Llandudno music festival "Played Off the Park" and were amazing. We had them as our Saturday night headline act and they interacted amazingly with the crowd wowing them with their high voltage set. To say they were incredible doesn't really do The Clan justice, they owned it. I would definitely recommend this band and I for one would love to work with them again."
Garrin Martin Miles Amies - Event organiser
"“As the band say themselves - It’s not brain surgery…if we have fun and the audience has fun, everyone goes home happy.”
"A good time power trio without any pretence yet exuding panache combined with enthusiasm,
stage presence, skilful playing and assertive song writing."

Live and Unsigned
"THE CLAN are by far, one of the most powerful and entertaining bands I have seen. It was a brilliant and exciting gig thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. I love THE CLAN and can’t wait to see their stage show again because that’s exactly what it was, not just a performance."

"The bands performance was well delivered and professionally executed; now I’m a fan of the CLAN."
