Bohemian Mods started as a two piece project in 2006 when Richard asked Ben to play guitar for a GCSE coursework piece. After a great response from a few small gigs, Richard and Ben decided to add a bassist and drummer (school mates Chris Morton and Pete McFarlane) to form Bohemian Mods. Unfortunately the original line up had to change when Pete moved to Brighton to study at university, however new drummer Sam Bull has filled Pete's shoes and brought a new sound to the band.
Regularly gigging at local venues brought recognition to Bohemian Mods and after only 9 months on the scene their home recorded demos were being played on Radio Sheffield's Raw Talent. This gave them the opportunity to support solo artist Roisin Murphy (ex-Moloko) at the well established Sheffield venue, Plug. After a year since their first gig, they landed a support slot with Little Man Tate at the new Carling Academy Sheffield, and will soon be going into 2fly studios to record a new demo.
Inspired by funk and soul artists such as Raul Midon and The Isley Brothers, the band has created a truly distinctive sound. With a down-to-earth feel and an air of simplicity, their music is the perfect soundtrack for any occasion. They are Bohemian Mods.
