First Foot Soldiers
Formed somewhere around 10/10/10, in a small instrument filled room in a certain local music shop, First Foot Soldiers are a Shetland band who play a wide range of Rock and Pop classics from the last millennium. Their live debut came on Boxing Day of 2010, and the band have been marching forward ever since, playing gigs all over the Isles, in all sorts of venues, and supporting some big acts on the way.
They've become known for their 'attention to detail' covers, their harmonies, and the variety of sounds and songs they traverse during a show, and their performance of Bohemian Rhapsody at the Festival Club in 2012 will live long in the memory of those that packed into Room 16 during the early hours of Sunday that year. Band members are Robert Balfour on Drums, Arthur Nicholson on Lead Guitar, Chris Thomson on Keyboard and Shaun Strachan on Bass.
