Drawing comparisons with iconic guitar bands like The Housemartins and The Smiths, Sandra’s Wedding are a Goole-based band who wear their working class routes firmly on their sleeves in their latest album 'The Hopeful Boy Replacement Service'.

With catchy songs full of jangly guitars and clever lyrics, the band’s 2017 debut album ‘Northern Powerhouse’ and 2018 follow-up EP ‘Good Morning, Bad Blood’ were both met with rave reviews. Songwriter Joe Hodgson's lyrics are evocative tales of love, loss and life in Northern industrial towns set to jangly, melancholic guitars that have drawn comparisons with a sound similar to The Smiths and The Housemartins. Sepia-tinged yet humorous, they offer an insight into life in a former ship building town.

The group released ‘Frame Yourself’ in Spring 2020 and had planned to take the new tracks on tour. However, lockdown curtailed these plans so the band decided to spend the time productively and released a sooner than expected follow up album 'Banana Bread.'

October 2021 saw the release of a new album titled 'Pleasure Grounds', with the title track being hand picked by The Poet Laureate Simon Armitage for airplay on Guy Garvey's BBC 6 Music radio show.

'The Hopeful Boy Replacement Service' was released in July last year, and will be available to purchase on wax on the eve of the show!

"Storytelling through music has almost become a lost art form. Thankfully, we still have bands like Sandra’s Wedding." - Andrew Lewis, Secret Meeting

"Like a cross between The Coral and The Housemartins" - Jericho Keys, BBC Radio York
