The Extenders are a four-piece band that plays unashamedly dirty, thoughtful and melodic rock.
The Extenders formed in 2001 when Keith & James started jamming in Brighton with Graham, writing songs that called upon their shared influences of Bowie, Led Zepellin and Suede. A couple of years later, Jim joined the group and sealed the line-up.
Now well into their stride, the Extenders have gigged extensively around the South-East over the years, headlining at such iconic venues as Camden’s Dublin Castle and Brighton’s Pressure Point (formerly the Richmond, and now sadly closed down), and playng at the Clapham Grand, the Monto Water Rats and Bush Hall in the process.
The Extenders are about big guitar riffs, subtle harmonies and memorable songs. The late-‘70s guitar influences remain a key staple of their sound, and are these days supplemented by elements of funk, punk and even a smattering of prog (but in a good way!)
