Final Groups

The Portsmouth Music Scene

21st Century PORTSMOUTH GROUPS & SOLO MUSICIANS

There may be gaps, missing names and no doubt mistakes - we would welcome further contributions to improve the record.
“Groups” refers specifically to those playing pop, beat, rhythm & blues, soul and rock music, broadly utilising amplified guitars and drums plus in some cases, other instruments.
It does not include jazz, folk, danceband. Our aim is to include any group from/based in the Portsmouth area that made at least one public performance.
