tst-album A fantastically talented 4 piece Event, Party and Wedding Cover Band based in Ipswich, Felixstowe and Colchester. Available for hire in Suffolk, Essex and London.Between us we’ve played with most of the well known local bands for over 2 decades. We’ve also been involved in sessions and are often asked to provide music for local events from garden parties to pub gigs to large music events like Stowblues and the Ipswich Music Day – the largest free one day music event in the UK.After years of playing with other bands, we decided to join forces and create a new group to cater for all styles with a variety of line ups depending on your requirements – as such, we bring you The Super Things.

Mark has probably depped with more bands than any of us have had hot dinners due to his ability to turn up and play anything like a BOSS while singing like a diva at the same time. Does not remind anyone of Phil Collins… nope
